The former Miss Ireland (44) was elated after giving birth to a little girl on Thursday, her third child with top Dublin restaurateur Ronan Ryan. Both mother and daughter were doing well at Dublin’s Coombe Hospital last night.

Proud dad Ronan confirmed the arrival, adding, “It’s all great, mother and baby are doing great. She’s going home tomorrow.”

“The Coombe is a fantastic hospital. Tom Darcy and his team made us feel right at home,” said Ryan.

The little girl is a new addition to the family and a sibling for toddlers Elsie (3) and Harrison (5), and her doting parents are still considering a name for her.

Pamela has spoken before on being termed an "older mum".

 “Being an older first-time mum was not part of my big plan for life. It was something that just happened," she said.

The baby girl arrived safely on Thursday afternoon, and Pamela will be back on our screens next year  -  appropriately filming a TV series about older mums.

“I’m going to be on TV3 next year presenting a programme on mature mothers  -  isn’t that apt,” she said.

“It’s funny, the storm in a tea cup put me back out there. They decided it was time for a programme about mature mothers. It’ll be a series and I’m delighted.”

The Tallaght woman and her Tipperary born husband this year set up a new restaurant, Counter Culture, in Dublin’s Powerscourt Centre.

“Having babies is the best thing that ever happened to me. It turned my life on its head, my priorities switched places. The children make me laugh and they make me cry, and sometimes they make me want to tear my hair out. That’s fine, we’re normal, and it’s just been amazing.

"It’s like low-level chaos every day. Sometimes it’s really fun, and sometimes it’s just a bit nuts.”

Congrats to Pamela, Ronan, Harrison and Elsie!
