“The baby is due in January and I’m 17 weeks pregnant,” an excited Alessia told the Sunday World.

“We don’t know the sex of the baby yet as we would like to organise a gender reveal party, respecting all the Covid rules.

“We are naturally delighted and thrilled to welcome our first baby.”

Alessia’s mum Liza Borza used to run a chip shop in Crumlin, and that is where Alessia was raised.
