PresEnter Dawn O'Porter has revealed that she will give birth to her and hubby Chris O'Dowd's first baby in Los Angeles.

The couple have previously lived in Dublin and London but are now based in Tinseltown and are planning on having their first child Stateside.

"We're having our baby in America definitely, but I don't know where we're going to be living in five years," Dawn revealed.

"It's nice that we travel all the time and we love living in LA. That's totally home. But London or Ireland is also another opportunity," she added.

The couple revealed their pregnancy via a video of Dawn doing the ice bucket challenge in August.

But Dawn's (35) pregnancy has become the butt of O'Dowd's jokes recently.

The famous actor called her "a big, strong girl" in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel recently.

"She's good. She's terrific. She's a good, big, strong girl now," he told the host when he inquired after his wife.

One thing that is still unclear is what surname their baby will take.


Dawn famously added an added her husband's 'O' to her own name 'Porter' following their marriage in 2012.

"I'm not very traditional so let's see," she said.

The versatile presenter has just launched her own fashion line, BOB by Dawn Porter.

It was also announced last week that Irish comedy series Moone Boy is set to be adapted for American audiences.

The ABC network have bought the rights to the quirky Irish comedy set in Boyle, Co Roscommon.

However, while O'Dowd (35) won't be appearing in the US version of the show, he will be writing and producing the remake which will be produced by Sony.

The existing version has aired on Sky since 2012, and won an International Emmy award for best comedy last year.

Season three is currently in the works and is due to be aired in the coming months after filming wrapped in August.

There are also rumours that another series or Moone Boy: The Movie could also be in the pipeline.

Chris, from Roscommon, is currently starring in new movie St Vincent with Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy and Naomi Watts.
