RTE star Jennifer Maguire gushed about her three month old daughter, saying she's "great craic".

The Breakfast Republic host and husband, Italian actor Lau Zamparelli welcomed little Florence into the world in March and will be returning to the airwaves soon after a 12 week maternity leave.

“It’s like I’ve been waiting for her for so long and she just fits into my life – it’s like she’s always meant to have been there,” she said about the new arrival.

“So I don’t feel mad different, I don’t feel like I’m a completely different person. She just fits into our lifestyle, so it’s nice that she’s just finally here and she’s great craic.”

While she might be back in Montrose next week, the businesswoman and comedienne said she hasn't been tuning into the radio show, co-hosted with Bernard O'Shea and Keith Walsh , saying she was grateful not to have a nine-to-five job at this time.

“I’m looking forward to going back, the place has descended into chaos since I’ve been gone,” she added.

“I haven’t been tuning in because I have a really good baby and she sleeps until about nine o’clock.

“It just seems to have gone by so quickly. I feel like I have to raise my child in 10 weeks, but I’m lucky in that I’ll be racing home after the show.

“I feel sorry for mums who have to go and work a full eight-hour day – I’m not sure that I could deal with that.”
