Strictly speaking, it's none of my business how many children the lovely TV presenter Claire Byrne and her partner Gerry Scollan may have, or how they may space them.

Yet, I somehow feel delighted that Ms Byrne, who will be 39 this summer, has announced that she is expecting her second child in the autumn.

She can now look forward to the hectic joy of being a mother to two children under the age of one: her first child, Patrick, was born just last October.
