Top Irish model Sarah Morrissey isn't letting her pregnany get in the way of her fitness regime.
The former Miss Ireland (31), who is married to League of Ireland footballer Pat Jennings Jr, is a devout gym-goer and is even studying to become a qualified personal trainer.
She is due to give birth in October and says pregnant life is “absolutely perfect" for her.
“I’m flying around!” she told independent.ie.
“I’m still working. Apart from the baby moving, it’s still the same.”
The self-confessed fitness fanatic credits her smooth-sailing pregnancy to her love of exercise and says she won’t let her growing stomach keep her from being active.

“For me, it’s [a fit pregnancy] the best thing anyway because I’m such a fit person," she said at the launch of new film by Water Wipes Pure Love at The Lighthouse Cinema.
“Obviously, I went to the doctor and they said it’s okay and I could continue.
“It gives me so much energy and I think that's why I'm having such a good pregnancy."
The catwalk queen says she hopes her healthy lifestyle will help to keep her labour as easy as possible.
“They don't call it labour for no reason - it's hard work,” she laughed.
“I think if I keep myself fit and healthy, hopefully it will continue that way.”
Sarah even modelled lingerie for Brown Thomas when she was four months pregnant.
“I kept it secret for so long, then it was one of them ones where I said yes to doing the job and on the day I was like ‘What was I thinking?!’ but it was fine,” she said.
