YouTuber Melanie Murphy announces she's expecting her second child
Melanie Murphy has announced that she's expecting her second child with her husband Thomas O'Rourke.
The YouTuber shared the exciting news to Instagram on Monday morning with a picture of her and her baby bump.
"My Christmas gift arrived very early this year," she wrote in the caption.
Family and friends rushed to the comments to congratulate her.
"Huge congrats!" blogger Louise Cooney said.
Melanie's sister, YouTuber Jessica Brennan wrote: "I’m so happy that all your dreams are coming true. Second bestie is on route."
The 32-year-old is already mum to a baby boy, who she welcomed in October 2020.
Earlier this year, she finally celebrated tying the knot with her partner Thomas O'Rourke.
The couple had planned their wedding two years ago in March 2020, but things were put on hold due to the pandemic.
They decided to marry at the registry office and save the ceremony and celebrations for a time when Covid-19 restrictions weren't so harsh.
Taking to Instagram to share a series of gorgeous photos from the big day, Melanie wrote:
"10/10 would recommend having your actual wedding two years after officially getting married in a registry office… really takes the pressure off!
"A couple of years ago our wedding was cancelled as the first lockdown was announced literally the week before it was due to go ahead and when the initial shock wore off I realised that a wedding is simply like a cherry on top of a cake … the cake, that’s the marriage! I stand by those words. Cherries are f**king delicious."
Melanie, who boasts a significant 629K subscribers on YouTube, first started dating Thomas in 2017, after being friends with him since she was a teenager.
