Miriam O’Callaghan braved the wind and the rain this weekend to make an appearance at Electric Picnic.

We mean there’s no party without Miriam!

She channelled her inner festival diva as she posed for pictures with her children during one of the rare sunny moments over the weekend.

The RTÉ presenter wasn’t just there to enjoy the revelry, she was also on hand to record some podcasts at the MindField.

“@epfestival it is always a pleasure! But especially after two long years apart. Great to be back at the MindField area with my twins & Daragh – thanks to my good friend @mattcooperlastword, to a fun panel, and to @naoisen for organising it all,” she wrote.

Miriam posted a rare picture of herself with her twins Jessica and Georgia.

VIP Magazine caught up with Miriam earlier this year where she discussed her brood of eight children, although she admitted she doesn’t think about it too much.

“I read about me and go ‘eight children’, she must be mad! But I have never planned my life,” she confessed.

“I didn’t plan on having eight children. I’m constantly amazed by people who do plan. I feel so blessed and so guilty for my luck to have eight healthy children, to the point that I made a tv series in our production company with my husband Steve about those struggling with fertility issues.

“I am also patron of a number of children charities like LauraLynn and Cliona’s Foundation. I feel so lucky.”

She continued to say: “I have unintentionally produced pretty radical feminists in my daughters. Again, I didn’t bang it in them but you pick up what you see and my mum who was a school principal, and is still going strong today, is a pretty radical feminist herself.

“I’m obviously a feminist too, and I think it has rubbed off on not just my daughters but also my sons. My mum always says my sons are so gentle. The older I get the more I think it’s got to do with nature nurture.

“Steve is very gentle. His dad was very gentle. My dad was very gentle. My brother is very gentle. There’s a lot of gentlemen in my family.”
