'There's a lot of weight in the male gene' - GAA star Alan Brogan on expecting his third child this month
Alan Brogan has said he is "looking forward" to becoming a father for the third time at the end of this month.
The three-time All Ireland winning footballer has two boys, Jamie (eight) and Harry (two) with his wife Lydia, and the pair are preparing to welcome their third child later this month.
"She's due at the end of March. She's good, tired as it gets closer to D-Day.
"It's not easy being a woman sometimes, as we all know," he joked to Independent.ie.
"We've got the two boys, so we've obviously been there already.
"We didn't find out the gender. We thought about it, but you don't get too many surprises these days, so we said we'd hold off."
Brother to Dublin GAA players Bernard and Paul, Alan said that "there's a lot of weight in the male gene" on each side of the family.
"There are a lot of boys on her side and the three brothers on my side, so there's a lot of weight in the male gene.
"Once the baby is happy and healthy, that's all that matters."
The 35-year-old is currently taking part in the National Workspace Wellbeing Day, which takes place on March 31.
"National Workspace Wellbeing Day encourages employers to organise events throughout the month of March and beyond," he said.
"It promotes wellbeing, nutrition and you can make it as simple as you want, whether it's organising a walk or putting nutritional advice on notice boards."
"There's no better place than the workplace because most people would spend most of their time there."
