It was only a couple of hours since RTÉ TEN were talking to a radiant Amy Huberman at the Irish Film and Television Awards, and now our Twitter feed has informed us that the Threesome actress and husband Brian O’Driscoll have welcomed a baby girl into the world.

According to various social media reports, it is believed that Amy's Leinster rugby player Brian O'Driscoll was present at the birth, just hours before Ireland take on England at the Aviva Stadium in the Six Nations this afternoon.

It is further reported that their new bundle of joy will be named Sadie.

The 33-year-old star looked stunning in a floor-length black dress at last night's award ceremony at the Convention Centre in Dublin.

Amy complimented her beautiful gown with a sleek fishtail plait and gentle quiff. She kept her accessories to a minimum with a chunky gold bracelet, teardrop earrings and a simplistic box clutch.
