RTE star Angela Scanlon shared a sweet moment when her daughter Ruby touched the developing bump as she prepared to give birth at home.
The Ask Me Anything host rarely shares pictures of Ruby, 3, who she shares with husband Roy Horgan.
Last year, Angela announced that she is expecting her second child and tell how she would have it from the comfort of her own home.
Today, she asked her fans if they have tips on how to introduce a new family member to the birth parent.
She wrote: “Call the midwife!! S*** is becoming a reality. How have you prepared babe for a sibling?”
“Any advice is welcome…. She seems to be quite enjoying it (depending on the day!!).”
Fans and friends flocked to her comments section with advice.
Actress Victoria Smurfit says: “When number one meets number two in the hospital, (forgive the numbering but hey ho) make sure number two is in the charm bucket (aka cot) and not cradled in your arms. Thereby, meeting siblings on equal terms and they don’t think the mummy has a new favorite. I tell you, it works x.”
Another added: “Buy her a doll and let her practice being a big sister. Maybe also a mini crib and baby bottle so she can ‘feed the baby’ and put the baby on the bed. it’s in bed.”
Another fan wrote: “The cutest pictures.. already a great big Sis.”
This comes later Angela recently said that she is “experienced” as she prepares to welcome her second child into the world next year.
She appeared on Today and spoke to hosts Daithi O’Se and Emer O’Neill about her pregnancy.
Speaking on the show, she said: “One way into next year, it’s all kicking off, it’s exciting.
“I’m feeling a bit great right now. I have a couple of days off and then I’ll be shooting Your Home Made Perfect 4 series next week.
“So it was a bit intense but my birthday also comes around Christmas time and so Christmas is all bets off.
“So I’m focusing on it this year because she [Ruby] She’ll be four years old next year but she’s in that adorable Santa age right now. “
