BROADCASTER Jennifer Maguire has become a mum for the first time.

The TV and radio, who wed her long-term partner Lau Zamparelli last summer, gave birth last night to a little girl. Little Florence Myra Zampareli eights eight pounds four onzes.

The happy couple are thrilled with the new arrival.

Jennifer’s Breakfast Republic co-stars Bernard O'Shea and Keith Walsh extended their well wishes to the new mum in their own unique way, saying: "We're both delighted for Jennifer on the birth of baby Florence, although Bernard is very disappointed to hear it's not his! To celebrate, we've given Jen the day off."

The popular presenter was busy working on her radio show past her due date and had planned on having a hypno-birth.

And she revealed that she was planning on making the most of her time with her husband before the new arrival.

"I am trying to use this time to tie up loose ends...and spend as much time being a couple becomes a threesome. That is always the most common complaint, isn't it," she said.

"You just don't have that precious time together anymore. So we are making it out mission to go out and spend as much time together as possible. In fact, I think he's probably sick of me at this stage!"

Jennifer is also one of the stars of RTE 2’S Republic of Telly.
