Fair City actress Amilia Stewart-Keating has announced she is pregnant with her second child.

The star is known for her role as Katy O'Brien on the hit RTÉ soap.

She shared the wonderful news on her Instagram account, posting a photo of her growing bump.

Captioning the post, Amilia wrote: “BIG BROTHER ALERT! We’ve been holding on to a little secret for a while now.

“Baby Keating #2 coming This November. Mammy, Daddy and Reggie are unbelievably excited and are taking the next few months to enjoy being a family of 3 before Reggie takes on his big brother duties this winter.

“We have been so blessed and are so grateful for this little miracle. Exactly 3 years ago this month Conall Keating promised me a life beyond our wildest dreams and he was so right. Everyday just gets better with you baby.”

This will be Amilia and her husband Conall Keating’s second child after they welcomed baby Reggie into the world during lockdown last year.

The actress previously opened up about Reggie’s “difficult” birth, which took place in the midst of heightened Covid-19 restrictions last year.

Due to the pandemic, hospitals across the country were forced to cut down on visitor numbers, which meant that Conall was only permitted to see his wife and newborn for short period of time.

Speaking to VIP Magazine, Amilia said: “I had Reggie in the Coombe and the staff were absolutely amazing. Conall was allowed in for my C-section and then they let him have some bonding time with Reggie while I was in the theatre.

"We had an hour as a little family and then we said our goodbyes until I got home. It was so difficult being apart, especially for Conall but we knew it was for the best and we’d be all home together soon.”
