Parenthood certainly suits Cat Deeley and Patrick Kielty.

The British tv presenter and Irish comedian welcomed their first child in January and have been keeping a characteristically low profile. But they were spotted running errands in their adopted home of Los Angeles in style.

 The famously private pair will be keeping their son out of the spotlight and have decided to not even publicly share his name.

Deeley is one of US television's most recognisable faces as the host of hit reality show So You Think You Can Dance and Kielty splits his time between Los Angeles, London and his native Northern Ireland.

And the couple, who wed in Rome in 2012, said they'll be raising their child in the Golden State - for now.

"We're going to ensure we take the baby back home to visit our families as much as possible but, for now, we're happy here in Los Angeles and are excited to bring up our child with an outdoors lifestyle," the 39-year-old told Closer magazine.

"They're going to experience the LA sunshine Patrick and I never got to experience."

Kielty and Deeley were friends for 10 years before their relationship turned to romance and the Dundrum native proudly recalled the moment they fell in love.

"There was a moment, when we always used to keep in contact. It was her birthday and she was in Beverly Hills and I was in Dundrum," he said.

"Obviously LA is eight hours behind, so it was around tea time with her, and I texted her 'Happy Birthday' from a little Irish pub. It was around two o'clock in the morning and closing time. She said, 'It's just a shame you're not in LA, because I'm having a lunch tomorrow' and I said 'I'll be there."

While she thought he was joking, Patrick made it in time. He joked that Cat was so surprised she fell off her chair when she saw him.

"So I got up at five, jumped on a six o'clock flight from Ireland and got into Heathrow at seven. Then jumped on a twenty to ten flight got in at quarter past one and walked into the Beverly Hills Hotel and I said 'Hi' and she fell off the chair and we've been together ever since."
