Our baby Ollie is far from a model tot, says doting mum Pippa

Yummy mummy Pippa O'Connor has revealed that she has far from the model baby.

The gorgeous blonde who gave birth to son Ollie last April, says the sleepless nights have put baby-making plans on the back burner.

The tired mum and her presenter husband Brian Ormond are besotted with cute tot Ollie, their first child together. But don't be fooled, it isn't all cuteness and giggles.

"We have only got to a stage where Ollie is sleeping through the night in the last few weeks," Pippa told the Diary.

"I am exhausted and only getting used to having more than a few hours sleep again, so is Brian," she laughed.

"So we definitely aren't thinking about having another baby in the near future."

But when the time is right, more babies are in the offing for Pippa and Brian.

"We definitely want to add to our family, we are enjoying our time with Ollie so much.

"Just not yet, we are only starting to feel human again," she added.

The 29-year-old, one of the country's most popular models, is also enjoying getting back to work.

The AR model says that the clients still book her for the same jobs now that she is a mum.

But she is more careful about when and where she strips off.

"I wouldn't say no, but I consider things more carefully now that I am older and a mum," she said.

"I would do a lingerie shoot once it is tasteful and in the right setting."

And Pippa has proved she is still more than capable of competing with the younger guns, such as model favourites Roz Purcell and Thalia Heffernan.

Pippa looked in the best shape of her life when she turned out at the Brian O'Driscoll testimonial in Dublin on Friday night.

She wowed in a floor-length shimmering red gown as she showed off her toned and slim physique.

With Ollie, her modelling career and new online site Pippa.ie keeping her busy, the chatty model says her diet has gone out the window.

According to Pippa, it was luck, not a strict diet, that helped her get slim again and she says her ultimate cheat food is a Chinese or Italian takeaway.

"I have always been quite lucky in that I don't put on weight very easily, but that could change as I get older.

"Now that I am working full time and running around after Ollie, I find that I am cooking less and ordering more," Pippa said.
