Baby joy adds special thrill to Avril's big day

BRIDE-to-be Avril Kelly has revealed how her wedding to former pop star Stephen Carter is sure to be a memorable one -- with her future sister-in-law Amanda Carter due to give birth in the same week.

The gorgeous model, who will walk down the aisle on February 12, said there's plenty of excitement ahead of her big day, given that her fiance's twin, Anthony, and his wife are expecting their first child.

Avril (26) says she and her hunky beau have no plans to start a family of their own for a few years, however, as they are both so busy with their careers.

"Everyone has already started talking about that [having children] but to be honest I don't think we'll be in any rush," she told the Diary.

"We're looking forward to enjoying married life together first. Everyone's really excited about Amanda and Tony's baby. It's going to be a busy time," she added.

Avril works as an events and wedding co-ordinator at the Waterside House Hotel and is putting the finishing touches to her own hen party, to be hold in the g Hotel in Galway next January.

The couple will be holding their star-studded reception at the exclusive Kilashee House Hotel in Naas the following month.
