Angela Scanlon delighted with the arrival of her second baby
TV presenter Angela Scanlon spoke about the arrival of her second child and says her three-and-a-half-year-old daughter Ruby insists she only wants a little sister.
Speaking on Friday night Late show, Angela said, “I’m having a baby. Number two! I’m feeling fine, a little tired right now but generally fine.
“I’m excited. I’m one of four, so we always hoped we’d have, not four, but one more and our daughter was canvassing.”
However, Ruby, who she’s had with her husband for seven years, Cork man Roy Horgan, says she will only be satisfied with one thing. “She keeps asking if she’s going to have a little sister,” Angela said.
“We say it might be a boy but no, no – it’s a little sister only because her friend has a little sister, and she has a lot of boyfriends who have little siblings and she gets married. feels utterly irrelevant. “
The family, who lived in north London, returned to Ireland six weeks ago when Angela started working on her new show RTÉ. Ask me anything, which begins October 23.

“It was lovely. Ruby went out with my parents and all of Cork’s nieces and nephews. It was really nice because the last few years we haven’t had the luxury of coming back like so many people, so when the opportunity presented itself, we decided to back down. “
Asked about the new show, she replied, “What is it? It’s an entertainment show, it has to be fun and light. It’s an escape. I feel more nervous about it. than anything I’ve done in my life and I’m also keenly aware that people will say ‘you are shit’.
“The reality is, it’s happening now in just a week. We’ve been working really hard on it, so who knows how it’s going to go. I hope it goes well. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.”
The former Irish dancer and journalist, originally from County Meath, began her television career hosting a number of shows on RTÉ, including the documentary Oh ginger! in 2014.
After working on fashion shows Xposé and Off the rails for RTÉ and on Channel 4 Sunday brunch, Scanlon then joined RTÉ The cinema show.
