Congratulations to RTE presenter Maura Derrane and her husband, Waterford Fine Gael TD John Deasy. The happy couple are joining the growing band of "late baby bloomers", with the patter of tiny feet due in March.

At 43 years old, Maura is certainly on the older side for first-time motherhood. But the glamorous broadcaster – who co-hosts the afternoon show 'Today' with Daithi O Se – says she has reached a "very comfortable time" in her life and is looking forward to the new arrival.

"We're absolutely over the moon and it's a very exciting time. Everything fell into place for us. I'm at a very happy, comfortable stage in my life."
