Expectant mum Pamela Flood certainly has her hands full - with another baby on the way and helping out at her husband's new restaurant.

The former Off The Rails presenter is due her third child in December.

The 43-year-old told the Irish Daily Mail that it was never her plan to have children into her forties.

"Women have kids in their 40s all the time now," she told the publication. "If you're lucky to meet you significant other in your 20s you're done with having kids by the time you're my age," she stated.

Pamela met her husband Ronan Ryan when she was 37.

"I only found out last week that two of my aunts had babies aged 44 too, so I'm merely keeping up with the family tradition," she offered. "I like being pregnant and I never really feel sick, just tiredness, so I'm done by 9pm."

For now, the former Miss Ireland is busy with her two young children and helping out at Ronan's new restaurant venture Counter Culture Cafe.

"Life is busy and I'm mostly at home with the kids, but I'm helping out with the cafe at the minute as much as I can and working too from the house. We don't have a child minder so it's hard," she said.
