Lottie Ryan and her husband Fabio Aprile have welcomed their first child to the world.
The radio DJ’s management company revealed the news today in a statement on social media; “NK Management is pleased to announce that Lottie Ryan has given birth to a baby boy prematurely at 33 weeks.”
“Lottie and Fabio will now be spending time as a family and we ask that their privacy be respected at this time.”
The couple announced they were expecting in February of this year. Sharing the news to fellow presenter Jennifer Zamparelli on RTE 2FM she said; “Our journey was an unusual one. It all started when I went to freeze my eggs.”
“I knew I was of a certain age and I had all these ideas. I said listen, we better freeze them because I’m on a rollercoaster of wanting to perform so we went to the clinic and started a conversation with the doctors.”
Continuing Lottie shared; “He said to me if we were to start trying now, it would take about a year. I said I better come off the pill so we can check everything and be prepared and three weeks later, I was sitting on the floor of my bathroom surrounded by tests.”
“I said to Fabio go get another one, there’s something wrong with this one as well. When I say we got a rake a tests, I mean Fabio must have emptied every chemist in the area,” she added.
“We both eventually went, ‘I don’t think they’re all wrong’. I don’t think anything can prepare you for seeing that positive mark on the test.”
Lottie and Fabio recently celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary together. The pair married in a romantic Italian ceremony in May of 2017, and were joined by a number of close friends and family as they said ‘I do’ at a beautiful venue in Casalattico.
The RTE 2FM presenter wore a stunning white gown with an embellished bodice, paired with a beautiful white headpiece, while Fabio opted for a simple black suit.
We wish them continued happiness.
