Xpose Michelle's love a slow burner
FORMER Xpose presenter Michelle Doherty may be happily loved-up and expecting her first baby with partner Mark O'Shea.
But the gorgeous broadcaster (36), who's due in August, has revealed how she wasn't interested in him when they first met.
A friend of hers first met Mark over in LA about seven years ago and tried to set Michelle up, saying she had found the "perfect man" for her. "I was like, 'I don't think so' - I was too busy having the craic," she said.
"I met him a couple of times and he was having the time of his life as well so it just wasn't the right timing and there was no way it would've worked with him living in LA and me living in Dublin.
"But we sort of kept in touch through Facebook, just randomly. And then about two years ago, we met up and we went on our first date. We haven't looked back since."
Michelle (inset) has moved back to London after her contract replacing Aisling O'Loughlin came to an end on Xpose.
But in the meantime, she told Irish Tatler she is relishing being a stay-at-home mum.
"My mum was a housewife so she was always there for us and I know that's probably not realistic in this day and age but I'd still like to be there a lot of the time with my child or children," she said.
She added how getting married isn't a priority for the pair. "I don't love Mark any less because I'm not married to him," she said.
