Laura helps beau David toast 40th

HER businessman boyfriend is turning 40 and model beauty Laura Scanlon has jetted off with him to New York to help celebrate.

The 25-year-old and her other half, David Murphy, flew over to the Big Apple last week to toast the milestone occasion and are spending a few days unwinding in the fast-paced American city.

Clearly in an Empire state of mind, the loved-up couple chilled poolside yesterday on the rooftop of the luxurious Gansevoort Hotel on Park Avenue.

The pair, who previously lived together in Dubai before returning to Dublin, clearly have a soft spot for the US.

Earlier this summer, the handsome duo travelled to California for a holiday and spotted a string of A-list celebrities, including Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, while strolling in Los Angeles.

Laura is now looking ahead to a busy season of modelling.

The catwalk queen moved from Andrea Roche's agency to the books of Assets at the beginning of the year and, in addition to posing for the cameras, is in training to become a fitness instructor.
