Nicky Byrne has said he and wife, Georgina, are very excited over their baby news.

The former Westlifer told RTÉ TEN: "Georgina's doing great, thanks be to God. We're very excited. She's due around Halloween time."

As to whether they're going to find out the sex of he baby, he said: "I don't know, we've discussed it - we didn't on the boys [twins Rocco and Jay]. It's one of those things where we thought 'Maybe we will' but I don't know, we're kind of old fashioned that way. The surprise is great, isn't it? We don't know yet."

Byrne says the twins are looking forward to the new arrivals: "They're delighted. I think at the beginning when you start discussing 'Would you like a little brother or sister', I think it was a bit like 'No, chance' but they've come right around now and they're very excited about it."

He added: "I suppose its how you play it and how you talk about it - all the exciting things that they'll get to do with their new brother or sister, touch wood. So its very exciting times in our household."

Former Westlife star Nicky Byrne and TV presenter Aidan Power will present a brand new six-part TV series, The Hit on RTÉ next month.
