Brian Dowling and Arthur Gourounlian are just weeks away from becoming parents.

And of course, that means the pair get to host a beautiful baby shower surrounded by their nearest and dearest.

They took the opportunity this weekend with the sun splitting the rocks to don their glad rags and enjoy the celebrations.

Clearly getting into the spirit, both Brian and Arthur opted for colourful ensembles. The Dancing with the Stars judge wore a shirt that was covered in Care Bears with a pair of yellow trousers.

While Brian opted for a pink, red and blue floral shirt and jeans, with both of the dads-to-be donning sunglasses to shield their eyes from the blistering sun.

Keeping the baby’s sex under wraps they had plenty of pink and blue balloons on display.

“Baby Dowling Gourounlian let’s CELEBRATE your pending arrival. It’s Baby Shower time @gourounlian #babyshower #babyboy #babygirl,” Brian wrote on Instagram.

They also shared a shot of themselves with Aoife, Brian’s sister who is acting as a surrogate for the couple.

“Today was all about you BABY DG! We are nearly there and we can’t wait to meet you. What a stunning days spent with friends and family. #babyshower #soontobeparents #thankful,” Arthur wrote.

Aoife looked beautiful in a flowing white dress as she attempted to keep cool during our latest heatwave.

Brian and Arthur celebrated seven years of marriage earlier this summer.

The pair tied the knot in Powerscourt, Co. Wicklow after three years of dating. Brian’s anniversary post was a snap of the couple on their big day. Both men looked stunning in black tuxedos with black bow-ties and red flower corsages.


“Let’s think back to that very first night we met in London in 2002. Me knocking back a Smirnoff Ice & you not really speaking a word of English. Fast forward 20 years later when we are married 7 years & have a baby on the way,” he wrote.

“I still feel like we are those 2 twenty-somethings living in London, laughing every day with not a care in the world. But the fact is we can be anything we want together. With you, by my side, I can DO IT ALL.”
