RTE's Claire Byrne CANCELLED her wedding last year after becoming pregnant

RTE star Claire Byrne has revealed she cancelled her wedding to fiance Gerry Scollan.

The TV star was all set to secretly walk down the aisle on November 7, 2014, until learning she was pregnant again.

She ended up giving birth to daughter Jane in early October, and brother Patrick is just 14-months-old.


Secret plans: But they pulled out of wedding over pregnancy

And Claire admits: “We had everything booked — and we didn’t tell anybody — for November 7 last year.

“Then we got the news about Jane being on her way so we just pulled the plug on it.

“About once a week one of us will say ‘when will we get married?’ but then we don’t talk about it any more… well, not that we don’t talk about it, it’s just not a priority at the moment.

“Trying to organise a wedding now with two very small babies seems like a mountain too high.

“We could do it this year or we might leave it for another while. We’re not putting any pressure on ourselves.”

Meanwhile, Claire – who is back with a new RTE show on Monday – said she doesn’t plan to have any more kids for a while yet.

She told the Irish Independent: “At the moment, because I had them in such a short period of time, I would say no.

“But you just never know what’s going to happen. I wouldn’t rule anything in or out but certainly not in the very short term anyway.”
