RTE's Sinead Kennedy has revealed she is pregnant with her first child as she showed off her blossoming baby bump. 

The TV star confirmed the happy news as she posed for a photoshoot with Irish Country Magazine.

Even though she has been presenting alongside Daithi O'Se on RTE's Today Show, she managed to keep the news under wraps till now.

The magazine said Sinead will be talking about being pregnant and what she plans for her parenthood.

An Instagram post read: ‘On the cover, TV presenter @imsineadkennedy shares her pregnancy joy and reveals why she has kept it a secret from viewers until now.

‘With almost two decades of shows and award-winning documentaries under her belt, she is one of the hardest working women on Irish TV.

‘She chats about following her own path to parenthood, her love of being behind the camera and lots more.’

The Winning Streak presenter is married to Conor Kirwan, who works as a naval officer.

This comes after Sinead recently said that she is worried she might not see her husband this Christmas because of Covid-19 restrictions.

The presenter explained that they are used to not seeing each other often but she does hope she can see him over Christmas.

Speaking with to RTE Guide Sinead said: "I hope I can see him over Christmas, but who knows what the restrictions will be?

"We’re used to spending time apart; its par for the course for us with his job and sometimes mine.

"Our relationship has always been like this. I think in the 15 years we’ve been together I’d say we’ve lived together for two or three years max.

"I think there’s something about not having someone around all the time that makes you appreciate them all the more.

"When it does come to the stage where we’re both in one place at the same time, for a prolonged period of time, that would be lovely; we’ll get there eventually."
