Lottie had previously spoken of how she was prepared to give birth in August but admitted that she was having some “complications” with her pregnancy.

Speaking in an Instagram Q&A with her followers last month, the RTÉ 2fm presenter said: “Pregnancy is good and I am good, thank you.

“It hasn’t been that way the whole way through, we’ve had complications but thankfully myself and baby are very healthy and very well so I’m very lucky.”

She added at the time that her due date was approaching and said that she felt llike the baby needed “to come out soon.”

“I won't say exactly but I will say I'm close,” Lottie told her fans. “I'm in the third [trimester] and I definitely feel like he needs to come out soon.

“I'm nervous but I'm more excited than I am nervous, so it's mixed emotions. Every day is different but overall just excited.”
