Top Irish model Sarah Morrissey debuts new baby as she heads back to work just two months after giving birth
Top Irish model Sarah Morrissey was joined by her adorable daughter Sadie as she returned to work today just two months after giving birth.
Former Miss Ireland Sarah welcomed Sadie, her first child, into the world in November, and today she brought her along to the launch of Aldi's Baby and Toddler Event at The Morrison Hotel.
The new mother was glowing as she posed for pictures with her daughter, although it was baby Sadie who stole the show with her big eyes and squeezable cheeks.
“I feel bad saying it but I had one of those amazing pregnancies and I think that was good for afterwards because I haven’t been near a gym because I had to wait six weeks anyway and it’s only been eight weeks. I just don’t have the time,” she told independent.ie.
“I also want to hold off on asking people to mind her for actual work. I don’t want to be like, ‘Can you mind her while I got to the gym?’ That’s taking the p*ss a little bit so I haven’t been back to the gym yet.”
And contrary to popular belief, Sarah (31) said that modelling and motherhood can actually go hand-in-hand due to its flexible nature.
“You can choose your hours and it’s not a full day. The only thing that it’s not handy for is that you can’t really plan until the day before. I’m very lucky because I have a lot of family nearby so I’m going to work it between my husband and my mam. My husband doesn’t work full-time so we're fairly flexible between the two of us,” she said.
She added that she’s also got very lucky when it comes to her little girl as she’s “sleeping loads and is a great baby”.
“She’s so good. The first couple of weeks are hard. Now its more about trying to get myself ready in the morning and her ready in the morning so it’s all down to timing because it’s not something you’re used to so eventually I’ll get used to it. So far, so good,” she said.
Sarah, a qualified personal trainer, and footballer Pat Jennings tied the knot in Italy in 2014 and baby Sadie is their first child.
The high-flying model didn't start showing until she was well into her second trimester, which meant that her modelling career never slowed down.
The Baby and Toddler Specialbuy Event will go on sale at Aldi stores nationwide from Thursday 19 January while stocks last.
