Speaking to Irish Country Magazine, RTE’s Sinead said: “It’s interesting to see how it will all work when baby arrives. Conor is going to be there for the next few years with work, so part of me is now going, ‘wouldn’t it be great if the baby can speak French?”.
“I don’t expect it the minute it comes or within the six months of my maternity leave, but maybe after a while it’ll have some kind of fancy European accent.
“It all depends on how Covid and everything pans out and how that’s going to affect us as a family. There’s no point in thinking too far ahead, I’ll spend my mat leave with Conor and we’ll just have to see the lay of the land after that.
“We just don’t know how things are going to go. If I can travel, do I travel over and back with the baby? Do I leave it with him two days a week? With restrictions and how things are at the moment there’s no point overthinking it because I can’t control it.
“Conor will have to home in time to do the restricted movement ahead of the birth, so hopefully baby cooperates but I don’t think that’s how it works!”.
Sinead also said she and Conor don’t plan to find out their baby’s gender ahead of the birth.
“Once it’s happy and healthy that’s all I care about. A lot of people find out the gender and I’m not judgemental when it comes to that or any of it.
“Find out the gender if you want, breastfeed or don’t, have a natural birth or don’t – it’s none of my business how anybody decides to do anything. Once you are keeping your baby healthy and happy it’s each to their own.
