Laura looked warm in a leopard print coat and a black hat, her blonde locks loosely falling around her features, a simple slick of make-up to her features.

Iain wore shades and a puffer jacket as he walked along next to her.

It was revealed in November that the presenter and comedian had secretly married in Dublin and they announced they were expecting a baby in December.

Taking to Instagram to celebrate the start of 2021, Laura finally confirmed the nuptials and said they ‘loved having it to ourselves’ – while sharing a beautiful snap from the couple’s big day

‘We had been planning the perfect celebration and I will forever be so thankful that’s what we got. We have never spoken publicly about our engagement or wedding. 

‘Back at the time we never felt the need to say anything as it’s all such a personal experience. We also were too busy enjoying it! 

‘We’ve never shared this picture before now but a lot of people have contacted us and congratulated us the last month with good intentions so here’s to good news!  

Laura finished up her post by wishing her fans a happy New Year and ‘sending love to you and yours’.

It had previously been reported that Laura and Iain tied the knot in November at a small ceremony at Dublin’s City Hall.  

They reportedly wed in front of 25 guests – the maximum allowed under Ireland’s level five rules at the time – with Laura’s half-brother Adam and Iain’s sister Kirsten as witnesses. 

Shortly after their marriage was revealed, Laura shared the news of her pregnancy on Instagram.

Laura shared a photo of a Guns N’ Roses Sweet Child O’ Mine baby onesie and wrote: ‘So I’ve always tried to be protective over the personal side of my life.

‘A lot of things are just for me and my loved ones and we’ve chosen not to share publicly. 

‘However I want to now share good news as it’s our news to share – and I’m gonna be honest it’s starting to look like my lock down beer belly is out of control.  

‘Iain and I are expecting a baby early 2021. It’s been hard to keep such happy news quiet. 

‘Especially the times when I’ve had to run out of live radio to get sick in a bin or my penchant for a bowl of mashed potato in the morning.’

Following their pregnancy announcement, Laura posed for an empowering shoot for Hunger magazine, for which she showed off her bump for the first time. 

The presenter said she had spent ‘almost six months’ being conscious of her changing body before her pregnancy was announced.

Sharing the shoot images on Instagram, she wrote: ‘I’ve spent almost 6 months hiding or being conscious of my body (well to be honest I’ve spent over 30 years doing this). 

‘But in particular as my body changed I have felt very protective of my baby bump. 

‘I’ve seen all sorts of comments “oh Laura’s had a boob job”, “her legs are too skinny”, “has she put on weight?”, “she needs to eat more cake!”

‘I want to say a massive thank you to Ryan and everyone at @hungermagazine for giving me the space to talk about my pregnancy on my terms and in my words.’

Laura discussed her road to motherhood and her pregnancy journey so far in the interview, where she said she believed things had fallen into place for her.   

She said: ‘As a timing thing, it probably wasn’t something that we thought about, it was a nice surprise. So I’m due at the beginning of next year and I think things just fall into place.’

The star also revealed the couple had found out the sex of their baby very early on via a Harmony blood test, with Laura saying the check had given her peace of mind that her baby was healthy after suffering a tragic miscarriage in 2018.

She said: ‘For me it wasn’t about the sex, it was just about whether the baby was OK. You constantly have that fear. I think there are a lot of things that are important to keep to yourself.’
