Lots of her friends from rugby circles are new parents such as Gordon D'Arcy and Aoife Cogan who welcomed baby Soleil this summer and Jonathan Sexton and his wife Laura who have a young son, Luca.

"Sadie and Billy are great, they're getting big and bold but they're super," Amy told the Diary.

"I'm good friends with a lot of the girls and it's baby land right now so I see them a lot.

"It's our play date and the kids are just there," she laughed.

While she dreams of "having a house full of 10 children", Amy said her family with husband Brian O'Driscoll is complete.

"I sometimes wonder, how on earth would I fit in another child?" she said.

"It would be nice [to have more children] but the logistics of having to do that is a lot of work," she added.
