Leinster's Brian O'Driscoll

Brian O'Driscoll and Amy Huberman are expecting their second baby to arrive in time for Christmas.

The 34-year-old actress said that she and retired rugby legend O'Driscoll (35) are overjoyed with the news that they are to become parents once again.

"I'm due in November. We haven't learnt the sex yet so we want it to be a surprise," she said at a book launch, with a neat but noticeable bump on show.

"I managed to keep it under wraps for so long – we thought we'd get on with it."

Huberman and O'Driscoll married four years ago last July and welcomed their first child, Sadie, in February 2013.

Her husband called time on his glittering Leinster and Ireland career at the end of last season, and has since scored punditry roles with Newstalk and BT Sports.

Huberman said: "It's lovely timing with Brian finishing, it's exciting and I'm really excited for Sadie as well."
