Louise is ready for the mother of all jobs
Former Playboy Bunny Louise Kavanagh is hopping into motherhood, the Diary can reveal.
The well-known model and her fiancé Chris Iwelumo are expecting their first baby in the New Year and are said to be "thrilled" with the good news.
The Dublin beauty (29) flew home from her UK base over the weekend to help launch new club Ruby's at Mantra in Maynooth.
And there was no betraying any hint of a baby bump for the svelte model and DJ as she posed for pics looking glowing in a stylish, electric-blue play suit with cut-out detail.
A close source said: "She's over three months now, so they recently started telling their friends and family. She's really excited about it and is definitely ready to be a mum."
Last July, Louise got engaged to her striker footballer boyfriend (36), who popped the question during a romantic proposal in Trentham Gardens in Stoke-on-Trent.
Louise, who once worked in Hugh Hefner's Playboy Club in Mayfair, was then whisked off on holiday to Morocco to celebrate their happy news.
A dad-of-two, Scottish soccer star Chris previously played for a string of clubs before recently signing on with Chester FC.
However, it seems that we'll be seeing a lot more of Louise over the coming months.
Clearly keen on continuing to work throughout her pregnancy, she has just landed a job at bordello-style venue Ruby's as club hostess.
She'll be flying over to Mantra every weekend to welcome in all the revellers in her new role.
And there was no shortage of familiar faces in the venue on Saturday night, with some special guests jetting in especially for the opening night.
Attendees included Corrie heartthrob Ryan Thomas, who jetted in from Manchester for the event.
Voted Sexiest Soap Star in the forthcoming British Soap Awards, he was besieged by awe-struck female fans during his time in Ruby's.
There with Emmerdale star Adam Thomas, the lads were spoiled for choice when it came to gorgeous girls to rub shoulders with.
Models, including Kerri Nicole Blanc, Karena Graham, Jayne Higgins, Rachel Wallace and Holly Keating, were all there for the opening night bash, at which the champers was flowing freely.
Other attendees included Niall Quinn's other half, Gillian, alongside model Hazel O'Sullivan, who flew over from London just for the party in the sprawling Co Kildare venue.
