Andrea shares joy of Sophie's Christening day

Model agency boss Andrea Roche has shared some adorable snaps from her daughter Sophie's first milestone moment.

The MD of AR Models and husband of four years, Rob White, marked their daughter Sophie's Christening yesterday and she shared the adorable family photos on Instagram.

At the helm of one of Ireland's top model agencies, representing some of our most famous faces, Andrea is tight-lipped when it comes to her personal life, only sharing select images and information about her family.

But she made an exception to the rule for the occasion of Sophie's Christening.

The former Miss Ireland welcomed her first child into the world last March and has previously spoken of how enamoured she is with her little girl, saying she "never knew how in love" she would be with her darling daughter.

Andrea married Rob in a lavish Ibiza ceremony in 2012 at the same spot where former Miss World Rosanna Davison wed Wesley Quirke earlier this summer.

And the head of one of Ireland's top model agencies who represents models such as Pippa O'Connor and Aoife Walsh celebrated her birthday yesterday.


Former Miss Universe Ireland Rozanna Purcell (24) was one of the first to wish her glamorous boss a happy birthday.

"Happiest of birthdays to the best agent & mentor Andrea, she's possibly the funniest person," she wrote online.

But she may not have a lot of time to celebrate as one of her top models, Nadia Forde, has landed in Australia and is set to appear on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!
