Champagne corks will be flying across the O’Hagan household this year with the happy news that both sisters are expecting.
Influencer Siobhan broke the news this week, a month after her sister Róisín also revealed that she is expecting and given how close they are in age, no doubt the cousins will be best friends growing up.
The personal trainer told her followers that she and her partner Darragh Molloy have a little one on the way saying: ‘We can’t believe we’re going to have a baby!
‘Well, I can believe it now. It feels like a long time under wraps. We’ve been dying to tell you all. Big changes coming!.’
Siobhan acknowledged that being a mum wasn’t always part of the plan as she quoted her late aunty Róisín who used to say to her that “life is what happens when you’re making plans.”
She also shared a video of the adorable moment that she told her grandmother and it might just be the most heartwarming thing that you’ll see this week.
In the clip, she was utterly shocked as Siobhan told her ‘there’s other news as well’ and presented her with what appears to be photos of her first scan and said ‘I’m pregnant too.’
Their granny became emotional as she let out a squeal of delight and hugged her. Their dad meanwhile can be heard joking that babies are like buses.
Róisín announced her pregnancy on New Year’s Eve by sharing a picture of her scan and writing: ‘For us this year will be the start of something very special.
‘Baby O’Hagan-Jones is coming Summer 2023 & we can’t wait. Our family’s little ray of sunshine after what was a difficult end to 2022. ‘
Congratulations have been pouring in for the sisters from all over. ‘I can’t believe the amount of love that has been sent our way,’ Siobhan admitted as she thanked those that had reached out to them.
Siobhan also spoke about how she had been worried the trolls might jump on her announcement. She said: ‘I was so nervous, and thank you to the trolls who have just kept it to themselves and chatted amongst themselves, wherever they do that.
‘I don’t know why I was so nervous, I thought everyone would have an opinion. I think I shocked a lot of people.. I can’t believe nobody guessed!’
She confessed that becoming pregnant had changed her outlook on life saying: ‘I used to live by my values of “freedom” and “happiness” which led to a very good life where kids did not fit (which is fancy talk for “I’m getting older”)
‘We just have to live with integrity to our values and kindness to others- even if it can be hard when others are not kind to you. Nobody knows the correct way to live this one shot we have at life. We’re all just doing our best.’
