Johnny Sexton and his wife Laura looked the picture of happiness as they met with President Michael D. Higgins at a special reception hosted in honour of the Irish rugby team.

Laura, who is expecting her third child with the Leinster and Ireland superstar, beamed as she showed off her baby bump at the exclusive event at Áras an Uachtaráinon Tuesday, to celebrate Ireland's Grand Slam win in March.

Sexton was joined by his teammates and their partners, including Cian Healy and fiancée Laura Smith, who opted for an Insta-worthy look in high waisted pink cigarette trousers from Zara.
