Proud mum Jennifer Maguire has no intention of posing with her baby daughter Flo in the pages of a glossy magazine.

The presenter says her maternal instincts are telling her to keep Flo out of the limelight.

"I don't think it's fair on her just yet," Jentold the Diary.


"Magazine deals are fine - I've no problem with them, but I just thought she's so tiny and you always feel a bit apprehensive that you're forcing her into the spotlight.

"She's had lots of offers - the phone is off the hook."

Despite all the kerfuffle in RTE radio headquarters, the Breakfast Republic star and former Apprentice star is relieved to be staying on 2fm's early mornings.

"I don't know what's happening, but I know we're safe and that we're staying where we are," she said.

"I think there's always going to be change, and you can't get too comfortable in radio or on telly ever."
