The most annoying thing a woman can be asked? Pals Dawn O'Porter and Amy Huberman agree it's the baby question

Whatever you do, don’t ask Dawn O’Porter or Amy Huberman about their baby plans.
Author and TV presenter Dawn has admitted the most annoying question she can be asked in an interview is about the future possibility of the pitter-patter of small feet. And her friend actress and author Amy Huberman agrees.
“I get so angry, I think it’s a natural question to ask and I totally understand why people ask the baby question,” Dawn said, “but I get slightly shirty because Chris could do seven interviews on the trot and not get asked once about me or if we’re going to have kids.”
The author, who is married to Roscommon funny-man Chris O’Dowd, said her good friend Amy Huberman feels the exact same way.
“Amy Huberman and I talk about this a lot because she goes through a very similar thing,” she told Dave Fanning on 2fm.
“For me, I do a lot of interviews and it’s like question number two.
“I’ve got two books and a TV series coming out in the next month, my books are my babies,” she laughed, “rant over.”

O’Porter spoke to Fanning as she launches her second book for young adults, ‘Goose’, and her first book ‘Paper Airplanes’ is shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize.
“I really didn’t think ‘Paper Airplanes’ would do that well,” Dawn said.
“I was nervous and I didn’t want to seem like another person off the tele that got a book deal. But then I thought, ‘Oh, they’re taking me seriously’.”
The full interview can be heard on The Dave Fanning Show on 2fm this Saturday 5th April at 10am.
