Amy & BOD return to normal life as the doting dad cuddles baby Sadie

They really are one, big happy family.

Just one day after a star-studded testimonial dinner at London's Grosnevor Hotel, Ireland's golden couple Brian O'Driscoll and Amy Huberman landed back on Irish soil and looked happy to be the home. Doting Dad Brian carried six-week-old baby Sadie in a sling as they landed at Dublin airport and diligently protected her from the public eye.

Clutching energising smoothies, the happy pair looked typically stylish in their dressed-down gear. Amy jokingly tweeted last night that she would provide her followers with "health tips".

"I'm thinking of a light evening snack of Pringles topped with melted Twixes under the grill. And a side of cherry Tangfastics," she said.

"Ps I've never actually tried this before but I thought it might be a great alternative to white bread. People only want me for my amazing health tips. I'm sick of it," she added.

Meanwhile, Brian described his VIP dinner as a "humbling" experience and joked that it's simply what happens "when you get old". The rugby hero is determined to continue playing for Ireland until the end of this summer, but remained coy on his plans after that.

The exclusive bash was organised by Caroline Downey-Desmond, Bono and Damien O'Donoghue, Brian's best man at his 2010 wedding.

Prince William, Bono and Ali Hewson, Rob Kearney, Cian Healy, Johnny Sexton, Michael Fassbender and Emeli Sande were just some of the big names in attendance.
