Something in the water in TV3? Third presenter announces her pregnancy
Xpose presenter Aisling OLoughlin has announced she is expecting her second child.
She is joining a club of new mums in TV3 who have all recently welcomed new babies.
Fellow presenters Laura Woods and Anna Daly, have both recently given birth , along with Xpose producer Debbie O’Donnell who welcomed a second son last month.
33-year-old Aisling is mum to 18-month-old Patrick with her partner photographer Nicholas MacInnes. And it looks like the new arrival will arrive in December, just as Patrick did two years ago.
“I think it’s going to be a December baby again. I’m just 12 weeks gone now,” she said. “It’s all very exciting.”
Aisling announced her good news yesterday to friends and colleagues at the station.
“I assumed everyone would suss it out,” she told The Herald. “They were all having a few glasses of wine a few weeks ago and I was the only one not drinking. So I thought they would pick up on it.
And Aisling who presents on the five nights a week show admitted she felt pregnancy symptoms from the moment she did her test.
“It’s strange with the second pregnancy. You feel pregnant from the minute you find out. I feel absolutely huge so thought everyone knew. But they were all surprised when I told them.”
Laura Woods gave birth to her second son Alex in the past fortnight, a sibling for her son Ben.
She is joining a growing club of second time mums in TV3 along with Anna Daly who gave birth six weeks ago to her son Euan, a little brother to 20 month old James. Xpose Producer Debbie O’Donnell welcomed a second son Sam in March, a brother to Marcus.
