Sile Seoige has shared a photo of her growing baby bump as her due date approaches.

The TV presenter, who is in her third trimester, posted an image to Instagram of her bump.

"35 weeks pregnant and growing by the day!" she wrote.

Sile (38) recently celebrated the all-clear from thyroid cancer after five years, and announced in February that she is expecting her first child with partner Damien O'Farrell.

The former Newstalk presenter recently told the Herald that she's tried to keep up her exercise regime throughout her pregnancy.

"I was walking loads but, when the temperatures are so high, it's harder as I feel like I'm carrying a heavy load," she said.

"I find the heat is a bit of a struggle but I love doing yoga or being down in the pool. The sensation of being in the water is lovely, you get that weightless feeling."

Sile also added she is more excited than anxious when her thoughts turn towards the birth.

"I'm not nervous about the day itself and, anytime I start to feel like that, I just take a breath and tell myself that all will be grand.

"Information is power. In the last few weeks I'm soaking up all I can in terms of labour and it's great when you hear some really fabulous stories."
