Well-known TV presenter gives birth to first child two weeks early
37-year-old television presenter Michelle Doherty gave birth to her first child partner Mark O’Shea last Thursday, August 7.
The TV3 Xposé presenter tweeted a picture of baby Max to her thousands of Twitter followers on Monday night saying that he was his dad’s ‘safe hands’.
She also thanked everyone for their messages, saying: “Little Max in safe hands with his dad! Thank you all for your gorgeous messages xx #soinlove,” she said.
New dad and Kerry man Mark also tweeted a picture of him holding Baby Max on Friday morning, adding that it was ‘the best feeling in the world’.
Prior to giving birth, Michelle told Irish Tatler Magazine that she was nervous about the prospect of becoming a mother. She said she was very fortunate growing up in Inishowen.
“I want to be able to bond with the baby and build the relationship,” she said.
“I know that I was very fortunate growing up. My mum was a housewife so she was always there for us and I know that’s probably not realistic in this day and age – but I’d still like to be there a lot of the time with my child or children.”
