Congratulations are in order for football pundit Richie Sadlier and his wife, Fiona Ward.
The former Ireland international has announced that they are expecting their first child together.
The couple, who got married three years ago, was told by specialists they could not conceive naturally.
However, he took to social media to share the news that despite all of that they are preparing to naturally welcome a baby.

Sharing a picture of them holding an image of their ultrasound, he wrote: “Four years after being told we couldn’t conceive naturally, and umpteen fertility consultations, scans, injections, embryo transfers, tears, hugs, and negative pregnancy tests later … I’m bloody delighted to share the news that my amazing wife @fionaward25 is now 15 weeks pregnant …. naturally!”
He continued: “I know everyone finds their own way through challenges like this, but we chose to speak openly to friends and family about what we were going through from day one, so we got their support when we needed it and the space when we asked for it.
“So grateful for all for the encouragement, support, solidarity and love we received along the way, and big hugs to anyone out there currently travelling the same path.”
Congratulations Richie and Fiona!
