RTÉ presenter Dáithí Ó Sé has said that he and his wife Rita Talty are expecting their first child next March.

He told The Sunday Independent: "Something is stirring. Rita is expecting our first child."

Rita Talty said: "It's great news for us. We are incredibly excited."

Ó Sé, whose father, the writer and musician Maidhc Dainín Ó Sé, recently passed away, added: "The light at the end of the tunnel is shining brighter now. Dad knew the news and was over the moon. It's a pity they'll never meet, though."
