Huge congratulations are in order for Ireland AM’s Ciara Doherty and her husband Richard Stern who have welcomed their first child.
The presenter gave birth to a baby girl, according to RSVP Magazine.
Both Ciara and her baby girl are said to be doing very well.
Ciara confirmed she was expecting her first child in July 2018.
The mum chose not to find out the sex of her baby until birth. She told RSVP Magazine: “We are keeping it a surprise because there are only a few guaranteed surprises in this world.
“It will either be a boy or a girl, so it won’t be too much of a shock for us. I am going to wait until the birth to find out,” she added.
Ciara and Richard tied the knot in the summer of 2017. The proud parents got married in a lavish ceremony in Barcelona in the August of 2017. They then embarked on a two-month backpacking trip around North and South America after their nuptials.
Ciara joked saying TV3 is "the greatest dating agency ever" after both she and sister Laura met their partners there.
She told The Independent: “Richard and I were working in different departments at TV3 when Laura came to work here.”
She explained that her sister was working in the same department as Richard and told Ciara: “'The search is over, I've found him. You need to meet this guy!' That was it."
We are overjoyed for Ciara and Richard. We cannot wait to find out what name they chose for their beautiful baby girl.
