TV3 host Michelle Doherty has announced she’s expecting her first child with partner Mark O’Shea.
The Donegal native announced her pregnancy on this evening’s episode of Xpose and said she couldn’t wait to become a mother.
“Mark and I are absolutely thrilled with the news that we are expecting our first child,” she told the Independent.ie.
“Since joining Xpose in November it’s been an absolute whirlwind. I’m very maternal and have been feeling broody for a while now so I’m over the moon with my news. Both Mark and I are very excited about becoming parents.”
Michelle and Mark started dating a year ago and she previously said she knew he was ‘The One’.
"He's a dote and a great man. He's met my mum and dad and they are mad about him. My mum keeps saying, 'Don't let him go,' and I say, 'Don't worry mum I won't'. He’s definitely the One,” she said.
Michelle joined the Xpose line up last year, covering Aisling O’Loughlin while she took maternity leave.
Aisling will return to our screen in June and Michelle said the Xpose couldn’t have been more supportive.
“I want to especially thank everyone for welcoming me to Xpose and sending me all their warm wishes on the back of my baby news”.
The news comes after Lisa Cannon announced her engagement.
“It’s all babies and weddings in Ballymount at the moment,” a TV3 source said. “No one leaves Xpose single or childless.”
