Oh brother! Nicky’s twins meet baby sis

Nicky, with twins Rocco and Jay, and mum-in-law Miriam at Holles Street Hospital.

DOTING dad Nicky Byrne has brought his twin boys to meet their new little sister.

Dressed down in jeans and a black jacket, the Westlife singer turned out with six-year-old Rocco and Jay at Holles Street National Maternity Hospital yesterday to pay a visit to mother Georgina and baby Gia, who was born on Wednesday.

The happy family were joined by Miriam Ahern, who came bearing gifts for her new granddaughter.

“What I’ve noticed already is how much more gentle having a girl is, it’s just different,” Nicky (35) told Ryan Tubridy on 2FM.

“Every little touch of her hands and her foot, it’s different to a boy. We’re just delighted, it’s a very special gift and we’re absolutely buzzing at the moment.”

He also said that he and Georgina had been preparing the boys for Gia’s arrival.

“Slowly I had been prepping them. We didn’t want to tell them too quickly and put them all out of sorts.

“But they’ve gradually come around to the idea, and because it’s a girl they now know that they don’t need to share their toys and they’re very happy with that.

“And as older brothers, I’ve been secretly saying, ‘you’re going to have to look after her and protect her’ – giving them a little bit of responsibility. But they’re loving it.”

Georgina, who is the daughter of former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern, is expected to spend “two or three days” in hospital before returning to the family’s Malahide home.

“She’s coming around, obviously she spent the night there,” Nicky added. “The night went well and Gia took well to the feeding. So far, so good. There’s no complaints.”

Nicky Byrne and Georgina Ahern bring twins to baby scan

The couple brought six-year-old twins Jay and Rocco to the prenatal scan, he has revealed.

But Nicky and Georgina don’t want to know whether their twins will be celebrating the arrival of a little brother or sister and have decided not to find out the gender of the baby before the birth.

“We were wondering how we’d manage to find out the baby’s gender without the two boys hearing,” Nicky said, “but in the end we said we’d keep it a surprise for all of us.”

Speaking on Today FM this morning, Nicky joked they will just have to paint the new baby’s bedroom white or cream.

The couple are due their third child in late October and brought six-year-old twin sons Rocco and Jay to Georgina’s last scan.

The former Westlife star has just returned from a summer break in Portugal with wife Georgina and is ready for his debut on RTÉ’s new reality TV show, The Hit, tonight.

The show is set to kick off with contestants The Stunning and Julie Feeney.

“There are five weeks of rounds before the big final,” Nicky said.

“It’s a magnificent show where unknown Irish songwriters will be pitching their songs to artists. The race will be on for the artists to choose the song they think could become a hit.”

Both songs chosen by the contestants will be released on iTunes straight after the show and their progress in the charts will be tracked before next week’s round.

Whichever artist’s song climbs higher in the Irish charts will make it through to the grand finale.

“It’s set in the O2 and the place just looks amazing,” Nicky said.

“Everybody’s friends and family are there and the atmosphere is just electric.”

The Hit, presented by Nicky Byrne and Aidan Power, kicks off tonight, Friday July 26, on RTÉ One at 9:35pm.
