Baby No2 on the way for RTE star Lucy

RTE's Lucy Kennedy has been juggling morning sickness with her radio job as she prepares for the arrival of her second baby.

The popular presenter says she and her husband are "really excited" about giving their son Jack, who is almost two, a sibling.

"We're absolutely thrilled about it. I'm four months gone and I'm feeling fantastic. I'm very excited about number two and really looking forward to April," she said.

"I had morning sickness for the first 12 weeks which wasn't very pleasant but thankfully that has all eased now.

"The beauty about radio is that people can't see how green you are when you're unwell!"

Lucy now joins other broadcasting mums-to-be inlcuding Sybil Mulcahy, Aisling O'Loughlin, Jenny Buckley and Michelle Heaton.



Moaning

The 2fm presenter is now busy planning for the new arrival while continuing her stint on The Baz and Lucy Weekend Breakfast Show.

She joked how co-star Baz Ashmawy has been great about her baby news.

"Poor Baz had to listen to me moaning every weekend during songs. He's a very patient boy," she added.

One of Ireland's most familiar faces, Lucy made the switch from TV to radio last year. In 2009, she picked up the gong for the Favourite Female TV Presenter and has worked on a string of TV shows over the years.

She's best known for her part in The Podge and Rodge Show. She spent years trading insults with the gruesome twosome in Ballydung Manor before hitting the airwaves.
