Chef Donal Skehan has admitted that he is experiencing pre-birth anxiety as he awaits the arrival of his second child.

Skehan (33) and his wife Sofie already have one child, a son named Noah, who was born in December 2017.

Sofie is due to give birth in November, and Skehan told the Herald: "We're excited... nervous, but mostly excited. It's all a go."


"You think you have everything together after the first one. But he's always changing."

The TV presenter, who moved to Los Angeles with his family in 2016, recently launched a brand called Cali Cali, inspired by his favourite state, that is vegan and gluten-free.

Dublin native Skehan was home for the National Ploughing Championships which he described as an "iconic" Irish event.
