I'm an emotional wreck... I cried at Futurama, says mum-to-be Pam

WITH one energetic toddler already on her hip, many would expect Pamela Flood (41) to breeze her second pregnancy.

But the former 'Off the Rails' presenter admits that it is a case of Kleenex at the ready as she is an emotional wreck these days.

The glamorous blonde is blooming as she expects her second child with restaurateur partner Ronan Ryan this October.

As well as looking after cute tot Harrison, who is almost two, Pamela says crying over episodes of Futurama and succumbing to her sugar cravings are keeping her occupied.

"I'm getting bigger by the minute and absolutely loving it. I think I am getting more emotional these days," Pamela told the Diary.

"I cried watching an episode of Futurama but that's part and parcel of being pregnant. Your emotions are a little raw but I think that's a good thing," she added.

And the Tallaght native has had to hang up her heels and close her social diary for the foreseeable future.

"It totally affects my social life. I mean, I don't have a social life anymore," Pamela told the Diary.

"I make special exceptions but my social life is basically non existent."

However, Pamela says she doesn't mind one bit. "I don't mind because I had 20 years of partying and had a great time so I don't feel like I'm missing anything.

"I feel like I've been there, done that and got the T-shirt – bought several T-shirts. I'll get my social life back in a few years time."

Pamela has said that she never planned to be an older mum, but everything has fallen into place in recent times and she is loving every minute of it.

"I was over the moon when I found out. I think I've had a charmed life at times and life is really sweet. But having children is the best thing ever – there is nothing else like it."


Far from being extra worried by her pregnancy, Pamela says she is more relaxed this time around as she knows what she is in for.

"It is different the second time round because I'm enjoying being pregnant a lot more – I enjoyed the first time but this is better because I know the end result," she admitted.

"I don't dread the birth the way I did the first time. I think I'm more confident because I know how my body will change and how tired I'll be, so being aware of that makes it easier."

Pamela will be sticking around Ireland this summer as a hot climate while pregnant doesn't tickle her fancy.
