RTE news anchor Eileen Whelan has said she was "really scared" about becoming a mother again at the age of 48.

Eileen (55) and her husband Larry, who were married in 2009, had IVF treatment to conceive their son Larry Jr, she told the RTE Guide.

The newsreader had her first child Seán in 1999 after she met a Brazilian journalist in the US, and when the relationship ended, she returned to Ireland in 2000.
