She's one of Ireland's most stylish broadcasters and now new mum Jennifer Maguire has revealed that her newborn daughter Florence is already following in her fashionable footsteps - even before she can walk.

The Breakfast Republic presenter took to Twitter to share the first picture of her baby since giving birth in March, an adorable pic of Florence in her first pair of shoes - tiny pink Converse runners.

Jen returned to work on the airwaves after just 10 weeks' maternity leave and she recently told the Diary that she's having no issues juggling motherhood and her career.

"Florence has slotted into my lifestyle quite nicely," she said.

"I'm not up during the night because she sleeps right through until morning so when I get up to head off to work himself [husband Lau] and herself are snoring away. She barely misses me.

"It actually really suits me and I feel very lucky because there's a lot of mums out there that have to get up, commute and work eight hours, which is tough," she said.

Jen is also working on a new sitcom with her Republic of Telly co-star Bernard O'Shea based on their comedy sketch characters Eamon and Bridget.
