Captioning it; “When Clíodhna met her Great Granny 💜
Clíodhna (5 months) met Bidín (102 years & 6 months) for the first time today and it was very special.
The last time I saw Granny was at her 100th birthday party and it’s been a long 2 years.
Feeling incredibly lucky right now.
Grá mo chroí thú 💜”
The Spidéal native welcomed Clíodhna back in Novemeber 2021, and she is Síle and her fiancé Damien O’Farrell’s second child, as they are already parents to a little boy Cathal, who is now four years old.
Announcing the news on social media she said; “Major baby bubble vibes going on here. Shattered but euphoric! Thanks for the love.”
She posted a gorgeous picture of her baby daughter Clíodhna on Instagram with the caption;
“Baby announcement (please read with self compassion)
“There is so much I want to say but I don’t know where to start! So simply put.. Clíodhna, our baby daughter arrived into the world on the Thursday 11th of November in a bit of a hurry but I still (luckily) had the birth I had hoped for with Damien by my side every step of the way.
“We’re so thankful for an incredible birth team in @thecoombehospital our wonderful consultant Professor Deirdre Murphy and midwives Rachel and Dara for believing in me and empowering me to have the birth experience I was hoping for. * shout out to perineum massage too for a quick recovery post birth.”
“Cathal has taken to the role of big brother brilliantly and we’re trying to soak up every euphoric and exhausting second while we can. Feeling beyond thankful that she’s here.”
