Fair City actress Amilia Keating has revealed that her honeymoon trip to New York is a "dream come true".

Last month saw her tying the knot with long-term partner Conall Keating and announcing that the pair are expecting their first child.

Dublin Amilia, who's nearly four months pregnant, flew off to the Big Apple with her other half to celebrate in style.

They enjoyed many of the usual tourist activities, including a romantic horse-and-carriage ride around Central Park.

Sharing a picture of them looking cosy together, Amilia wrote: "When Conall was trying to convince me to be his girlfriend over the years, one of his go-to phrases was him swearing to one day take me on a romantic horse and cart around Central Park - and here we are.

"Married with Beanie in my tummy and nothing else matters. I love you so much and I'm so proud of you, Conall.

Soundtrack

"I can't feel my feet in this picture, but it was still the most romantic thing!"

They also went to see the Tony Award-winning musical Hamilton, about the life of American founding father Alexander Hamilton.

Amilia hailed it as "everything I could have imagined after singing along to the soundtrack for over two years".

She described it as "the best wedding gift by my favourite acting tutor and brilliant friend".

"Backstage, meeting the cast and standing on the stage was just magic," she said.

"If marrying my best friend and being blessed to be carrying our first baby wasn't enough, this honeymoon is just a dream come true."

Amilia, who's also a stage actress, married the nephew of Ronan Keating in the Diamond Coast hotel in Sligo last month.

She announced the happy baby news to all their family and friends during the event and said she can't wait to become a first-time mum.

As well as recently reprising her role as Katy O'Brien in RTE's long-running soap, she also appeared in Nothing But A Toerag at Bewley's Theatre and is receiving rave reviews for her role in the Dublin production.
