That embrace! Meet Erin, James McClean's nursing graduate wife

It was a night to be remembered in Cardiff.

Last night, Ireland progressed to the play-offs for the World Cup, with James McClean scoring a goal against Wales in the 57th minute of the match.

And while those 90 minutes were fairly nail-biting, nothing can compare to the embrace James' wife Erin gave him moments after the match was over.

I couldn't love him more ???

However, even as we all breathed a sigh of relief, our eyes reverted back to Erin, the nursing graduate and mother of three, as she celebrated with her man.

The couple married in 2016, in a very lavish wedding in Co. Derry, their hometown.

They exchanged vows at St Columb's Church, before heading onto Drenagh Estate for a private and intimate party.

Erin's dress was certainly a show-stopper - a satin gown which hugged her figure and had a gorgeous peplum waist - while James wore a velvet suit jacket and black dickie bow.

Taking a quick look through Instagram, it's clear that Erin is besotted with her family, as she regularly updates her followers with pictures of her gorgeous kids, Allie (four), James Jr (two), and Willow Ivy who was only born in August.

Lucky woman to have 3 healthy happy baby's ❤️

It seemed like James was after Erin for some time too, as back in 2010, his best friend Rory told the Irish Daily Star: "We were in the Metro nightclub in Derry when he saw Erin.

"I think he had his eye on her for quite a while," he added.

What a gorgeous couple!
