The pair are already parents to daughter Isabelle Luna who turns two this month. The parents have not yet revealed a name of their baby boy.

Mr Saina is known for hosting the Irish dating TV show First Dates Ireland, now in its sixth season on RTÉ.

Mateo and Vjerana got engaged over three years ago, but there are no plans for a wedding anytime soon, he told the Sunday World in February.

"We got engaged, we had a child and that wasn't a priority and then corona happened and now we have another baby on the way. The last thing we think about is us,” he said.

Mateo added: "I guess it is a corona baby. Nobody has a plan and nobody is ready for children - not for the first, second or third.

"Right now it's like we have two kids in the house because we have a new puppy. She will grow up with my daughter, they love each other, they are always up to something which is why I'm so busy.

"Isabella is two-and-a-half, she is quite like me. She has her own set of rules, nobody listens to me in the house anymore. I need to go back to work.”
