Saina said his partner is feeling "very calm" and isn't suffering from any sickness.

When asked by Daithí if Mateo would like to see his son or daughter on First Dates in 20 or 30 years time, he replied with a laugh: "Well hopefully they're going to find [a partner] for themselves without any help."
