Lisa Cannon: 'I would love kids...who wouldn’t want to procreate with my husband? He’s gorgeous'
After a tumultuous year, Lisa Cannon has said she and her husband Richard Keatley are looking forward to 2017 and are keen to begin a family.
The TV3 star received a tough blow earlier this year, when she was cut from TV's Xpose after 10 years as part of a major shake-up of the show.
Cannon is now covering Anna Daly’s maternity leave on Weekend AM and said she is looking optimistically towards the future with her Welsh husband of one year Richard.
“I am looking at a family,” the star told the Irish Daily Mail’s TV Week.
“I have never tapped into that. That is something that is a big aspect and something that Richard and I are talking about. Of course I would love kids and who wouldn’t want to procreate with Richard Keatley? He is gorgeous.
“We want to look at family as an avenue,” she said.
Earlier this year the star opened up about being cut from TV3’s flagship entertainment show and compared her emotions to those of a break-up.
"I had an inkling that something was going to happen - and wondered how it would pan out. So obviously when I was the change that was disappointing to say the least," she said.
"When you are told you won't be rejoining the show it's hard news to hear. It's like a break up. It's like being told 'it's not you, it's me'."
However, Cannon said she began to look at the positives of the situation.
“I was able to consider the flip side, which was that I was being given this opportunity as an anchor for Weekend AM. There were so many things happening at the same time that I had to get my head around."
