Jennifer Zamparelli can't help but gush about her two-year-old daughter Florence, saying she's a 'mini-me' of her husband.

The 2FM presenter and her husband Lau celebrated Florence's second birthday on March 26, with Jennifer telling Independent.ie, "she's just a mini him."

"She's so funny, she's very sociable. She'd run away with anybody and she loves playing in dirt. She looks like Lau, she's just a mini him. She doesn't look like me at all, but I definitely remember giving birth to her, I definitely remember that happening, so she's definitely mine.

"But she is a mammy's girl, we're great pals. She's great fun and easy to be around. She's a predictable baby. She doesn't have any mental tantrums yet. And she's a singer, she was singing Happy Birthday for nearly two weeks. She sings all the time, in the car, in the bath."

Speaking at the launch of Durex's #OrgasmsForAll campaign, Jennifer said that she doesn't think that she has "really changed" since becoming a mother.

"I think your priorities change and you're a lot less selfish. I don't think I've really changed.

"I still like doing the same things and I think it's very important to have a sense of being and try and be as much as yourself and stay connected with friends and do the things that you like doing, but your priorities change, simply that she is my priority, she's number one and she comes first and everything else comes second."

After celebrating Florence's first birthday in New York last year, this year Jennifer (36) and Lau organised a more low-key affair.

"We had a party for her second birthday. We reluctantly had a party because I wasn't too keen on having a lot of toddlers in the house, but we did it. It was like a military operation with the pass the parcel and the pinata.

"We got everybody going and it was fine. I bought the cake, I didn't make it. I could do the rest, but I couldn't do that. Lau made a lasagna though, for 20 people, so that was very good."

As the couple's third wedding anniversary approaches in July, the Bridget and Eamonn star said that the date could come and go because they have been in a relationship "for so long."

"I didn't know how many years it was! It's funny, that date would probably creep in and creep by because we've been together for so long. Ten years.

"Our wedding was overshadowed by me getting horrifically sick with pregnancy. Our honeymoon was ruined. I'm never going back to the Seychelles. The thoughts of it!"
