The media personality is embracing her “proudest role so far”.

Baby Max is following in his model mum's footsteps, helping to launch a new nutrition campaign.


Michelle and Max are the faces of the First 1,000 Days Awareness Week (1st-7th September.)

The initiative hopes to highlight the importance of good nutrition during a baby's most important formative time.


Former Xposé host Michelle and her partner welcomed her first born on August 7th in London.

Her boyfriend Mark O’Shea, an entrepreneur from Co Kerry was by her side at the birth.

Michelle landed the coveted Xposé presenting gig late last year, beating off stiff competition from hopefuls including Pippa O’Connor and Daniella Moyles.

The Donegal brunette was enlisted to replace Aisling O’Loughlin while she left on maternity leave.

Now, Michelle, a former Aer Lingus air hostess, will focus on being a doting mum to Max for the coming months.

She recently said:

“You can't put your life off because of jobs. I just always wanted to be a mum and I thought: 'Whenever it's the right time I'll take my blessings'."

The former Phantom radio DJ was vocal about her “amazing” pregnancy, revealing she never got sick and was rarely tired:

“I was more worried that I wouldn't be lucky enough to get pregnant, because so many people struggle to,” she told the Irish Independent. "Some people do take it for granted and I was never one of those because I love children so much. I would've died if I couldn't have had a baby so yeah, that was my priority.”
