Anna has now taken to Instagram to share a message with her followers.

“Thank you to each & every one of you that took the time to send such heartfelt and thoughtful messages during these past few weeks," she wrote. “I’m sorry I couldn’t reply back to everyone, but I want you to know that I did read them & I really do appreciate them.

“Life is unpredictable! No one ever knows what’s around the corner. For now, I’m trying to find my way on here. Bear with me xx”

She also took to her grid to share some snaps of her cuddling son Ronan, writing: "There has been a lot of this in recent weeks! His hugs have been getting me through."

The comments were flooded with messages of support, with one person writing: "So sorry for your loss Anna, sending lots of love your way."

"Sending even more hugs your way sweetheart," wrote another.

The RTE presenter's tragic loss comes after she sadly lost her father last year.

Speaking about his passing to RSVP earlier this year, she said: "It was a big shock, to be honest, My dad only fell ill in February, like six weeks later he was gone.

"My dad was a robust and typical Irish farmer. He very rarely was sick and the show went on 365 days of the year, hail, rain or snow. I suppose it hit me like a tonne of bricks, but it also reminded me of the fragility of life.

"I am a hundred miles an hour person, I love packing things into my day, sometimes you are nearly forgetting to look after yourself and doing all the things you should be.

"Then a real life situation hits and you are forced to deal with it."
