Sile Seoige is taking extra precautions as her due date approaches - and joked she’s adopting Roy Keane’s “fail to prepare, prepare to fail” plan.  

The presenter is pregnant with her second child with partner Damien O’Farrell and they are expecting a baby girl. They also have a four-year-old boy named Cathal.

Sile has not only packed her hospital bag, but shared a photo of her back-up plan in the event of a quick birth.

“Prep for our daughter's arrival is in full swing this weekend! While I'm finishing off the hospital bags, himself is getting the transportation to the hospital ready!” she wrote on Instagram.

“One of the trickiest parts of labour for me last time was the trip to the Coombe.

"Think of me as an annoyed wild caged animal and you'd be getting close.

“Also I had a fairly quick labour on Cathal and we've heard plenty of stories of baby No. 2 coming fast so in the words of Roy Keane (or some other bloke called Benjamin Franklin) 'Fail to prepare, prepare to fail.’

“Before I get any disapproving messages...this is only to be used in an emergency. Obvs.”

Sile announced earlier this year that the couple would be welcoming a baby girl into the world. She has spoken in the past about her personal struggles after having two miscarriages.

“I just wanted to share some personal news but I am very conscious of how I say it,” she wrote at the time.

“Anybody who's been following me here for the past while will be aware that the past two years, on a personal level, have been challenging because I've gone through two miscarriages. It was tough.
