BRIAN DOWLING showed off his new baby bump in a topless pose on the cover of an Irish magazine to celebrate topping its 10 most annoying People list.
The reality TV star, who is expecting his first child in December, has been voted the Most Annoying television Personality by Ireland’s ‘MEAT’ magazine.
The 32-year-old reality TV star wrote on social networking site Facebook: “I would like to thank everyone for their support and messages. Baby Francis is kicking now and says hello to you all.”
Publicist James Mathews said in an interview with WWN that the County Kildare man is 21 weeks pregnant, and he plans to find out the sex of the baby next month.
“Brian has already given the baby a unisex name. He is very excited by the whole experience.”
Dowling had undergone several rounds of in-vitro fertilisation in an attempt to get pregnant.
He said: “It took me ages to get pregnant. I won’t even tell you how many times I’ve gone to Lillie’s over the past two years. OMG!!…I’m mortified.
Since I’ve been pregnant now, I’m just like sooo over the moon. I think my bodies taking it well too, I thought it was absolutely going to freak me out, the whole body change and hormonal change, but I am loving it.”
He added: “I’m so chilled out about my looks. Flaunting my new bump on the cover of MEAT is a dream come true. I’ve been giving in to cravings for anything in my path that’s chocolate or a new television contract….tehehehehehe.”
In July, Brian tweeted: “Chocolate chomp bars, celebrity salon and banana fritters! OMG HE’S KICKING AGAIN!!! HAHAHAHAHA…He wants out to see the cameras. HEHEHEHE.. Francis is going to be a little star, just like daddy..”
The one time Big Brother winner also revealed he may want another baby next year, he boasted: “the world is my oyster!!“.
