Crystal Swing star expecting their first child

Dervla Burke has revealed that she is expecting her first child.

The Crystal Swing tied the knot with her love Tim O’Connor in August 2015.

“When I saw that the test was positive I couldn’t keep it to myself, Tim was working on the farm at the time but I ran out straight away and said there was something I needed to tell him,” she admitted.

The blonde beauty further revealed that her husband was shocked when he heard but it was something they had both really wanted.

“He was shocked at first but a good kind of shocked,” Dervla told Cork’s Evening Echo.

“It was something we both really wanted I must have done about 10 tests after that just to be sure but we didn’t announce the pregnancy until I had confirmation from a doctor.”

The 24-year-old told her brother and band mate Derek Burke about the good news and he’s already picked out a great nickname for the child.

“He’s really looking forward to being an uncle,” the newlywed said.

“Derek’s already calling the child ‘Baby Swing’ and it’s starting to stick.

“I’m just hoping the baby won’t grow up with that nickname!”

Dervla’s mother Mary Burke recently admitted that they still cringe at their old music videos.
