RTÉ 2FM presenter Lottie Ryan has revealed that she and her husband Fabio Aprile are expecting a baby boy.

Speaking on 2FM's Jennifer Zamparelli Show on Friday, Ryan said: "I am having a little fella, a little boy and, like, we could not be happier. 

"It didn't really matter to me, to be honest with you, if it was a girl or a boy. I won the bet, though, between me and Fabio, because he thought it was a girl. But it's a boy."

"He's [Fabio] absolutely over the moon," she added. "He's absolutely thrilled - so am I. I don't know what it is; there's something about once it has a gender... I don't know, I feel like it made it much more real to me."

The couple shared the news that they are expecting their first child last month. They married in May 2017.
