The 31-year-old is one of Ireland’s busiest models and has started a course in fitness nutrition and sports science at DCU so children are a long way off.

“People ask me the baby question all the time,” she told the Herald. “It’s a big thing now. I was reading about John Legend’s wife Chrissy Teigen and she gets really upset being asked the question.

“I can understand that because I think it is really inappropriate to ask people. But I can understand why people want to know as well. I do want kids and hopefully we will one day, but not right now.”

“We have to take our jobs into account, so maybe in a few years. We’re too busy at the moment, so we’ll see,” she added.

The former Miss Ireland has been a stalwart on the Irish fashion scene for a decade but said there isn’t the same pressure on models here as  abroad.

“We don’t get weighed or measured or anything like other agencies do abroad,” she said. “Saying that, I get sample sizes [for fashion shoots] and we still have to fit into them. But we don’t have the pressure models [abroad] do.”

The Liberties beauty said she doesn’t worry about her size any more as she works out every day and has a strict diet. Sarah was speaking at the announcement that 82pc of Irish people prefer healthy holidays, according to VisitScotland.
