Baby Thor's a model son for excited mum Virginia

IT looks like Virginia Macari's son Thor is set to follow in the footsteps of his glamorous mum (36).

The seven-month-old has already secured his first modelling job for a top Dublin based boutique, despite not being able to walk or talk.

And proud mum Virginia (26) can hardly contain her excitement.

Yesterday, the Dublin Housewives star excitedly tweeted "How super cute! My little baby son has his first modelling job next week!"

It seems that the mighty Thor has inherited his mother's love for the spotlight, and is already in demand as a model.

While Virginia was remaining tight-lipped about Thor's upcoming photo shoot, informed sources can reveal that the beautiful baby will be modelling christening gowns for children's store Petit, located on Exchequer Street, Dublin.


This boutique specialises in Italian designer wear for children and babies -- which no doubt appeals to Virginia's Italian roots. The upmarket store sells a range of adorable ensembles for Christenings, Communions, flower girls and pageboys.

Virginia has yet to reveal whether she will be modelling alongside her baby boy..

And it seems that both mum and baby are throwing themselves into the modelling scene. Earlier this month, Virginia appeared in a daring photo shoot for glossy monthly Suburbia.

Virginia is not only embracing motherhood -- she's also getting ready to resume filming season two of TV3's hugely successful Dublin Housewives.

The series will air this autumn and with rumours of two new cast mates joining the show, it promises to be even more compulsive viewing.

The highlight of the series is bound to be fiance Kaste Dahl's dramatic proposal in New York. The Norwegian businessman popped the question during a romantic gondola ride in the middle of Central Park.
