RADIO presenter has found love after her marriage break-up, and says she would love to have a baby with new man Louie.The radio presenter from the Ray D’Arcy show is a busy woman.
She has just been made the face and hair, of Garnier Nutrisse in Ireland (Davina McCall is the UK brand ambassador) and is about to present a new show on RTE with Davy Fitzgerald on Ireland’s fittest families.
But the mum of one has said she is happier now with her busy life and being loved up with Louie and her six year old son Dara.
“”I’m very happy,” she tells VIP magazine in the new issue. “And very much in love, so yeah, life is good.”
Asked what changes she would like to see in her life in five years time, she admitted:
“I would love another baby. I’d possibly be working less hours...and please God I’ll have Louise by my side.”
Mairead's son Dara from her marriage to ex-husband Eamon is full an endless source of delight to her.
She recounts a recent conversation with him, where he told her:
"'I wish you were seven, but you were still my Mam.' I said: why? And he replied: If you were seven you could come to GAA camp with me."
The Finglas native was signed by the global brand L’Oreal to front the campaign, and is preparing herself for billboard posters to appear around the country.
“I really am thrilled. My hair has been the thing that has been commented on quite a bit, and I’ve gotten up early lots of days to do it – even for working on radio! So it’s like, finally, someone’s noticed!”
The mum is about to present a new show on RTE that was the brainchild of Clare hurling manager Davy Fitzgerald, called Ireland’s fittest families, and she says she found the All Ireland winning manager to be a pussycat.
“He’s one of the loveliest people you could work with, a gig sweetheart and a big softie,” she says.
“People see Davy on the sideline, shouting and roaring – and they get scared! He’s just so passionate about sport and about winning but he’s a gentleman at the same time.”
