What a month it has been for Doireann Garrihy! She marked some milestone moments this month from a new job to a new beau, new house and a newborn nephew, she really knows how to start the year out with a bang.

The 2FM Breakfast Radio host announced back in December that she would be joining fellow radio host and producer Jennifer Zamperelli in hosting the brand new season of Dancing With The Stars Ireland.

The pair took to our TV screens the first week in January to introduce us all to the 11 new competitors along with their pro partners.

Doireann has taken to the new presenting gig like a house on fire, dressed to the nines in some gorgeous pieces every Sunday night. We can tell she loves it from the beaming smile she’s showcased in pictures and while live on air.

Rumours were flying back in December about a possible new beau on the scene which was confirmed with a little pic in front of a hotel Christmas tree doing the lead-up to Christmas. Since then Doireann and her bf, comedian Mark Mehigan have gone Instagram official with Mark showing his support for her during her DWTS gig.

He shared a cute snap to his story of Doireann and her dog after her inaugural show, how sweet is that!

The DWTS host also shared that she was moving house. The 30-year-old bought her first home back in October and revealed to fans that she would be renovating it from top to toe so wouldn’t be living in it until the building was complete.

She took to Instagram to post a heart warming video of herself and her dog Bertie. She captioned the video: “All I wanted for Christmas this year was a garden for Bertie… Christmas came early. That makes it sound easy, it’s been a wild ride, but we’re homeowners. Now to turn a shell into a cosy spot for two.”

While Doireann was celebrating her own milestones so was her sister Ailbhe who gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, Fionn on 16th January 2023.

Doireann was delighted to be there to welcome her nephew into the world. The radio host and presenter took to Instagram to congratulate her sister and commented beneath Ailbhe’s beautiful birth announcement post ‘We love you already Fionn’.

We wonder what else Doireann has planned for the next 11 months
