As for adjusting to motherhood, Amy said that she loves spending time with her bundle of joy.

"She’s sleeping more now, so we’re better," she added.

"I love hanging out with her."

And while BOD and Amy are arguably Ireland's most popular couple, they are normally quite guarded when discussing their private lives, but she gushed about her husband of three years on air, calling him a "very special person".

"He is up and gone at half six most days, they do pilates and all that before they even start training," she explained.

"He’s going to bed earlier than Sadie most nights."

While she weighs up future acting roles, Amy is busy promoting her shoe line with Irish company Bourbon.

"I am allowed to wear other shoes," she joked.

"The new season’s boots are out now, the demand has been so high that I’m actually waiting on mine as well!"
