Pippa O’Connor could not hide her excitement when she chatted about her best friend Brian Dowling’s journey to fatherhood.

Brian and his husband, Arthur Gourounlian are set to welcome their first child together later this year.

Pippa, who has a long standing friendship with Brian, gushed about the “blessing” that is their child.

Speaking on the red carpet at the Platinum VIP Style Award, she enthused about the bundle of joy admitting she was excited for playdates with baby Billy.

“We’re really looking forward to it, it’s so exciting! It’s such a blessing, we’re so delighted for them. It’s going to be so lovely, I can’t wait!” she tells us.

After being voted Most Stylish Woman on the night, you would think that Pippa would be happy to bask in the glow of her win.

However, she assures us that she won’t have any time to relax!

“There’s a lot going on!” she admits with a sigh.

“And there’s a lot more coming up, we have a new launch with POCO coming up, isti 38 only launched a handful of months ago but it is growing and going really well.”

However, she couldn’t be more proud of her new business venture, “It’s great to see it everywhere! We’re really happy with it.”

Earlier this year, Pippa spoke to VIP Magazine about juggling three children.

“I am wrecked. He’s only waking once in the night at 4.30am, and he may go back to sleep at 5.30am, but I don’t. Eventually that takes its toll,” she admitted at the time.

Her secret? Revive Active!

“Revive Active! It gives me a boost. I genuinely feel if I don’t take it for a week I will be more sluggish. I also think people underestimate water.”

“Three litres a day will save me, my skin, my hair, my head. Water is so important. We can all do it, but we forget. And we all mistake hunger for thirst. I fill up water bottles when I fill up the boys and have them in the fridge ready-to-go.”
