EVANNE Ni Chuilinn intends to keep her wedding a private affair.
The RTE sports presenter will marry youth worker Brian Fitzsimons later this year, but does not want the pictures to be splashed across glossy magazines and tabloid papers.
In an interview to be broadcast on RTE Raidio na Gaeltachta today, the 31-year-old also talked of her baby, Seimi, born 14 months ago.
"I get to put Seimi to bed and I love that – the cuddles and putting him to sleep," she said. "He sleeps very well, so I'm very lucky."
Life can be hard, though, with a small baby and long work shifts.
"I can't deny that it's difficult to balance it all with work and Seimi.
"It's hard to be organised, and to manage my time. I work 12-hour shifts and, at the moment, I'm doing a lot of morning and weekend work."
Despite not growing up in a Gaeltacht area, Evanne is just as at home delivering the news in Irish as she is in English, and was even made an ambassador for Seachtain na Gaeilge.
"I'm speaking some Irish to Seimi – teaching him little things – we have two languages in the house. I'd like him to go to a Gaelscoil."
Evanne lost her baby weight soon after she gave birth, but it wasn't to conform to others' expectations.
"I wasn't under pressure from anyone else, but I did put myself under pressure mainly because I wanted to be able to wear my clothes again and didn't have the money to be buying new stuff."
Evanne wants Seimi involved in the wedding. "We might give him the rings to carry up. We just need to make sure he doesn't eat them!"
Evanne, adopted as a child, also spoke about meeting her biological mother and how the two are now friends.
