SHE’S only three-months-old but Amy Huberman and Brian O'Driscoll's baby daughter Sadie is becoming quite the cosmopolitan traveller.

She's already seen the sights and sounds of London and it looks like the tiny tot will be heading Down Under with her parents this summer as Brian (34) lines out for the Lions.

But mum Amy says she's terrified by the thought of taking a long haul flight with a baby on her hip.

“I think we're going to try and go,” the 34-year-old actress told The Diary.

“Although the logistics actually terrify me – it's a bit scary but I think I'd regret it if we didn't go. It's a once in a lifetime kind of thing.

“And everyone keeps saying she's actually at a better age now to fly than if she was a little bit older.”

And according to the proud mum, Sadie is a bit of a pro when it comes to boarding gates and passport photo posing, having made her first trip to London for the VIP Testimonial Dinner at London's Grosnevor Hotel.

“We have her passport already from when we went to London,” she laughs.

“It's pretty old school at this stage because she got it done at just two weeks.

“She's like: ‘Please – I don't even look like that any more’.”

The Lions tour will kick off next month, and O'Driscoll will be joined down under by eight of his Irish team mates including Jonny Sexton, Cian Healy, Rob Kearney, Tommy Bowe and Paul O'Connell.

Amy has been to Oz before and says she can't wait to return.

“I've been to Australia once before.

“I went a couple of years ago with a friend and I absolutely loved it. So it would be great to go back and travel around a bit – to Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.

“It's an amazing place, everyone is so |laid back and chilled and there is so much to see.”

And the Threesome actress is looking forward to enjoying some of the Australian heat.

“It will be winter there but Brisbane is further North so it will be a good bit warmer so that will be nice.

“It wouldn't be great if we had our coats on the whole time,” she laughs.

“But we haven't anything booked yet so we'll see,” she added

Amy was off baby duty on Saturday night and enjoying the annual Leinster Rugby Ball where she caught up with the fellow rugby WAGs including Gordan D'Arcy's model wife Aoife Cogan.

“It's really fun,” she said.

“This night is always great – it's lovely to come out with all the girls and have a night out and get dressed up. And there's a great vibe.

“I see the girls all the time but it's nice to head out and enjoy a few glasses of wine together.”
