No lavish parties for Pamela as her 40th is strictly a family affair

SHE was once quite the party girl.

But Pamela Flood will not be throwing a big bash for her 40th birthday party next month - even if she is the other half of Town Bar and Grill's Ronan Ryan.

Yummy mummy Pamela Flood insists it will be a low-key celebration when it comes to her 40th birthday next month.

In one of her first interviews since giving birth to the couple's three-month-old baby, Harrison, last March, the glamorous television presenter explained that she has not yet planned anything to mark the milestone, which falls in July.

Last summer saw Pamela's other half Ronan throw her a birthday bash at the restaurant he manages, Town Bar and Grill, while the former Miss Ireland returned the compliment by organising a surprise 40th party for him at a hired venue in Drumcondra last September.

However, the Tallaght beauty admits that her priorities have changed since giving birth and says that it will be all about close family and friends this year.

"I have nothing planned yet, I never had a fixed idea about what I'd do and I still don't know," Pamela told the Diary.

"I will certainly mark it in style in some way, though. It will be more about family.

"I think every birthday is worth celebrating, no matter what your age," she added.

Pamela went on to explain how she is enjoying being a mum for the first time and is completely smitten with her adorable tot.

According to the down-to-earth blonde: "I'm absolutely loving motherhood. It is one of those things you really have to do yourself to understand just how wonderful it is.

"I'm completely living in a little bubble of babies and nappies at the moment.

"He was born in March and he's already huge. He's a little bruiser.

"He's a good little baby, he's been sleeping pretty well. All babies discover their lungs when they need to, though," she laughed.

The RTE star admits she is looking forward to returning to work at her leisure.

"I'm getting used to the whole change in lifestyle, I'm glad to be able to be at home with him," she explained.

"I have so many friends who are either pregnant or having babies at the moment.

"There couldn't be a better time. You're missing nothing because everyone's too broke to do anything with the recession.

"I don't have a contract with RTE. I work directly with the National Lottery so I'll literally be back to work when the phone starts ringing," she added.
