A few weeks ago, the couple revealed that they had welcomed their first child together.

McFadden captured a picture of Danielle pushing a buggy and posted it to Instagram.

"Mammy, Daddy and baby out for our first walk together," he said in the caption. "It's been the best week of our life."

In January, Parkinson spoke about her experience with pregnancy on an Instagram live video.

"Myself and Brian have been together for four and half years now," she said at the time. "A year into our relationship we decided to start trying for a baby, without thinking too much about it, just the odd ovulation test here and there."

She continued: "After a year and a half, we realised we may need some help. We made an appointment with our doctor to start the IVF process about two years ago.

"We were told all the worst news, given all the worst-case scenarios, but you just have to keep going and trying everything you can."
