“After being a boy dad for the past 6 years who is obviously very masculine and tough as nails and doesn’t bake cupcakes on the weekend for fun, I look forward to embracing my feminine side,” he noted alongside a laughing emoji.

“Already in love with this little nugget and can’t wait for our baking days!!!”

Friends of Donal soon flooded his post with congratulations, including pal Arthur Gourounlian who said: “YAY, congratulations! I mean, the two girls will be keeping you on your toes 😂🤣😂 get ready for the princess cakes and some make-up tutorials with the both of them.”

Yes, just recently Brian and Arthur made the announcement that Donal would also be Godfather to their latest bundle of joy, baby Blu alongside Aoife Dowling who will take on the role of Godmother.

“We ADORE both Aoife & Donal,” Brian shared in a post to Instagram.

“They will make a FABULOUS pair of Godparents & provide Blu with so much love, support & of course, a little bit of spoiling.”

Yes, it certainly looks as though Donal will have his hands full for the next while.

No better man, we say!
