We’re on cloud nine and feeling very blessed. In a way it’s hard to imagine we lived so long without him! it’s like he’s always been here.”

Lottie Ryan has said that she is “absolutely loving” being a mum in a candid chat about parenthood.

The RTÉ 2fm presenter and her husband Fabio Aprile welcomed their son Wolf into the world last month after he arrived two months before his due date.

Both Lottie and Wolf are doing well since coming home from hospital, and the 35-year-old decided to do a Q&A on Instagram yesterday to answer any questions her followers had about her new role as a mother.

One person asked how she and Fabio are coping with parenthood.

“We are absolutely loving it!” Lottie shared.

“We’re on cloud nine and feeling very blessed. In a way it’s hard to imagine we lived so long without him! it’s like he’s always been here.”

Another fan asked how Lottie felt when she found out that Wolf was arriving prematurely at 33 weeks. She said that the hospital staff were “just incredible” and calmed her down before she went into labour.

The Dubliner responded: “Honestly, it all happened so quickly that I didn’t really have time to feel or think!

“Thank God for the team at The Rotunda who kept me calm and made me feel so safe.

“We were 2 [and a half] weeks in NICU and the team in there were just incredible.”

The Dancing With the Stars winner admitted that while she has taken to motherhood like a duck to water, she still feels exhausted most of the time after Wolf “arrived with a bang.”
