Colette Fitzpatrick Gives Birth To Baby Boy

New Parents Colette and Niall

Thurles native and television presenter Colette Fitzpatrick has given birth to her first child, a baby boy, yesterday afternoon.

Colette and her husband Niall McDermott are understood to have named their new arrival Milo-Peter, Peter being her fathers name.

Colette who married her TV3 colleague and love of her life Niall McDermott, in a family ceremony at Holycross Abbey, last year, stated at the time that she didn’t want to rush into having a family, although she was concerned about having a baby at the age of 36, and admitted that emotionally and financially she did not think she would have been in the right space earlier to have a baby until now. She stated that if she had left it any later statistics have proved that it might not happen at all.

Speaking to RTÉ  in August last, Fitzpatrick spoke publicly about her excitement at prospect of the birth of her first child: “It doesn’t really feel real… until I have the baby in my hands. Obviously we don’t care whether it’s a boy or a girl… a healthy baby and, after that, a baby that doesn’t cry too much!”

Mother and baby are understood to be in excellent health and from all in Tipperary go our congratulations and best wishes to you both.
