Kerry's beloved social media sensation, Tadhg Fleming, and his wife, Alannah, recently took to Instagram to announce the eagerly anticipated arrival of their first baby.
The couple shared their exciting news in a touching post that not only reminisced about their wedding day but also featured a heartwarming image of their cherished dogs alongside a glimpse of their baby scan.
In an emotional and rare podcast appearance, Tadhg and Derry joined Síle Seoige on the 'Ready to be Real' podcast, recorded in Galway.
The father son duo shot to fame after Tadhgh shared a video of his father Derry trying to catch a bat in their kitchen that went viral in 2017.
Síle expressed her gratitude, acknowledging that Tadhg and Derry don't often engage in podcasts or interviews, making this conversation particularly special.
Reflecting on the monumental year that was 2023 for him, Tadhg noted that marrying Alannah in May was significant, but the upcoming year promises to be even more momentous as they eagerly anticipate the arrival of their bundle of joy.
Derry, known for his work in the local credit union and described by Síle Seoige as a deep soul who wears his heart on his sleeve, shared his excitement about the impending grandparent status.
Having met the entire family, Síle Seoige affirmed that the Flemings are the "real deal."
Tadhg shared the surprising news with a dash of humour, highlighting the family's tradition of expecting a new four-legged friend and humorously contrasting it with their imminent parenthood: "So normally, Dad would be expecting a new pup at home, a four-legged friend, but we will be expecting our first baby, myself and Alannah, so we are over the moon."
"We have planned it, but we didn't think it'd be that soon. He's here now next to me. He's crying But he's gonna be granddad Derry"
"I'm gonna side Derry now, and it's gonna be baby content" he laughed.
Derry humorously recounted the couple's unique announcement adding: "He gave me this. It was like a COVID kind of thing. I thought he'd COVID."
"I just said, have you COVID?" he added.
Tadhg laughing: "Myself and Alannah were like Yeah, we came over, the two of us, to tell you I had COVID."
Derry, overcome with emotion and tears in his eyes, expressed the beauty of the moment: "It's beautiful. The two of us, Maureen and myself, we were an embrace. I would just say we're going to be grandparents," his voice welling up with joy.
Tadhg, ever the joker, lightened the mood by suggesting that Derry's tears were due to the anticipation of babysitting duties: "He's crying because the baby will be over with him the whole time. He'll be babysitting."
