Ailbhe Garrihy has admitted she was ‘in tears’ before she gave birth earlier this month, as she was separated from her husband in hospital due to Covid-19 restrictions.

The PR manager welcomed a baby boy named Seán with her husband Ruairdhi Hehir on August 19.

Taking to Instagram this morning, Ailbhe reflected on her “surreal” birthing experience.

She wrote: “This day 2 weeks ago – 6.50am just before we headed to @rotundahospital and having no clue what to expect.”

“Ruaidhrí could only come as far as reception with me and I wouldn’t see him again until I was in the delivery suite.”

“There were tears as we said goodbye but I just kept thinking ‘get it together Ailbhe – millions of women have done this before you and millions more will do it yet’.13 hours later we met our perfect baby boy ????.”

“I’ve had 2 weeks to reflect on what was the most surreal but amazing experience ever,” she continued.

“I couldn’t have asked for better care from my consultant and all the incredible midwives and staff at the Rotunda ❤️ Shoutout also to women’s bodies- you are f*%$ing amazing ????????.”
