The RTÉ presenter has previously opened up about the heartbreak of suffering multiple miscarriages.

While pregnant with Ellie, she appeared on The Late Late Show to talk about the difficult time she had trying to conceive.

"We were trying and nine months came and went, and then finally - and you're starting to lose faith, and you're starting to go 'what are we doing? have I left it too late?' and all of that, and essentially - we got pregnant and we were over the moon,” she said.

"We had booked a holiday to Greece, my favourite place in the world, took off to the Greek islands, and I was six weeks when I had my first miscarriage which happened out there."

"I had to get a boat and then into a hospital in Athens where nobody was speaking any English, and it was the most horrific experience.

"Because of our line of work, I'd interviewed so many women who'd gone through miscarriage, and I had done the research, and I knew statistically one in four women have a miscarriage... I'm very upbeat and when it happened to me, it completely floored me."
