The Breakfast Republic host and his wife Lorna are overjoyed by the arrival of another baby boy.

The presenter is also a dad to son Tadgh and daughter Olivia. There’s no doubt the siblings will be thrilled to be spending Christmas with their new baby brother.

Bernard has yet to confirm the name of their latest bundle of joy but he did previously joke that he would call him Frank in honour of Pope Francis’s visit to Ireland earlier this year.

“Well now you can bring the name Bernard back, baby Bernard or Bernard óg,” another suggested.

One commented: “What a lovely Christmas present, now you have to cook all the Christmas dinner and leave your wife alone.”

Christmas is going to be extra special in the O’Shea household this year. We’re delighted for Bernard and Lorna.
