Pip tot hooray (The Star)
DELIGHTED parents Pippa O’Connor and Brian Ormond brought their new baby home yesterday for the first time.
Telly star Brian said: “I’m excited as a kid finishing up in school on a Friday! Heading home with @pipsypie and Ollie! Xxx.”
Top model Pippa, 28, gave birth to Ollie in Mount Carmel Hospital in Dublin last Wednesday.
Dressed casually in black leggings, flat shoes, a white T-shirt and black cardigan glamourous Pippa beamed as she waved at photographers.
Already looking slim and trim, the yummy mummy told well-wishers she was delighted and couldn’t wait to get her little one to their home near Maynooth, Co Kildare.
And proud dad Brian, 33, who already has a daughter Chloe from a previous relationship, smiled from ear to ear as members of the public congratulated him.
He previously said on Twitter: “Thanks so much to EVERYONE for their kind words! What an amazing day.”
Brian had announced the new arrival with a message saying: “Our family has grown! Ollie Ormond arrived into the world today. So proud of @pipsypie Love you both! Xxx.”
Pippa also took to Twitter to reveal her joy saying: “Thank u so much for all the lovely msgs! So lucky to be blessed with Ollie, he’s perfect & beautiful. Love at first sight.
“So lovely reading all the messages from past few days! Haven’t been able to reply individually but THANK YOU for thinking of us ?? xxx.”
And yesterday she jokingly revealed her hubby was a little worse for wear after wetting baby Ollie’s head on Saturday night.
She added: “Its ‘wet’ the baby’s head! Not drown it!? @brianormond79.
“Watching The Voice with one sleepy baby & one bigger baby who’s slightly worse for wear!? Home time tomorrow — exciting.”
And as Brian and Pippa, dubbed Brippa, brought baby Ollie to his new house, rumours were rife that there might be another reason for celebration in the O’Connor family.
Olympic medallist Cian O’Connor, Pippa’s big brother, also left the hospital with wife Ruth Maybin clutching a folder, sparking speculation that Ruth might also be expecting.
