‘I don’t want to have any regrets,” model and former broadcaster Michelle Doherty tells me. “But this is the last... because I’m 45, and Max is already eight, it’s like, are you sure you want to do this? So I’ve gone into it, saying, ‘right, whatever will be, will be.’”

Max is Michelle’s son with her partner, Kerry man Mark O’Shea. She’s talking about their attempts to have a second baby. The couple, who are home from Australia for the first time since Christmas 2019, have just returned from Prague, where Michelle has undergone an embryo transfer.
