Empire Film Awards - London...Johnny Vegas and Maia Dunphy

RTE presenter Maia Dunphy is expecting her first child with comedian husband Johnny Vegas.

The What Women Want anchor wed the comic in 2011 but the pair enjoyed a long-distance relationship until last year.

Now, just three months after relocating to be with her other half in London, Maia has announced their baby joy.

The 38-year-old shared a snap of her scan online - but it was a scan with a difference.

A tiny pint of Guinness had been photo-shopped into the image by the expectant mum.

"Well Johnny Vegas, at least we know he's yours," the broadcaster joked.

"No need for a DNA test then," Vegas replied to his wife.

Her funny man husband also advised her not to bother splashing out on 'expensive' maternity wear but to borrow his jeans instead.

Last year Maia, who cut her teeth in print journalism before working with RTE, confessed that she was aware that she "wasn't getting any younger" when it came to having children.

However, at the time she explained that they were waiting until they lived in the same place.
