Morah Ryan knows how to make a splash.

The mother-of-five might be one of the most recognisable women in the country, but she guards her privacy fiercely, only make a select handful of public appearances throughout the year. You're more likely to find her supporting a charity close to her heart or backing a friend on a big night, but she made an exception as she hit the red carpet for Wednesday night's Irish premiere of The Shape of Water.

Wearing all-black, she looked effortlessly chic in a masculine tailored suit, combat boots and her trademark tousled hair tied up loosely.

Ryan must surely be beaming because of the success of her children - Bonnie, a singer and makeup artist, Rex, an actor, Babette, a model, Lottie, a radio broadcaster and son Elliott, who has chosen a more private career.
