Friends, co-workers, and followers flocked to the comments section to send Caitriona and her family their well wishes.
RTÉ 2fm’s Doireann Garrihy wrote: “Huge congratulations Caitriona.”
Primetime host Miriam O’Callaghan said: “Wonderful news - congratulations Caitriona, to you all.”
Actor Jenny Dixon, who plays Kerri-Ann Bishop in Fair City, penned: “Super congratulations.”
While influencer Heidi Higgins chimed in by saying: “Wonderful news Caitriona, congratulations.”
Caitriona announced her pregnancy in April this year after “keen-eyed” viewers noticed her baby bump onscreen and began to offer their congratulations.
She then told her followers that she was expecting as she thanked them for their kind words.
The notoriously private journalist shared a stunning picture of multi-coloured flowers as she wrote: “Just want to say a quick thank you to the many keen-eyed @rtenews viewers who have been in touch with good wishes. Well spotted! I am indeed expecting some more news of my own later this year."
Ms Perry welcomed her first child, a baby girl, in 2019.
She has presented the Six One since January 2018 after her post as the RTÉ News Washington Correspondent.
