So sweet.

Doireann Garrihy is all loved up as she shared a new snap with her comedian boyfriend Mark Mehigan, confirming the two are definitely in a relationship.

The newly appointed Dancing With The Stars host was first blasted with rumours of a romance when the pair were spotted enjoying a night away at the Powerscourt Hotel.

Doireann then supported Mark at one of his gigs late last year, only adding fuel to the fire.

While the couple did make their relationship Instagram official in a 2022 recap post, Doireann officially confirmed the relationship on Monday night in an Instagram Q&A.

One follower asked: “Have you a new BF? You mentioned Mark on the radio one day.”

Doireann responded with a photo of the two, saying: “Donncha [O’Callaghan] and Carl [Mullan] were wondering why I amn’t as active in the work WhatsApp anymore so I had to tell them why.”

Some famous pals took to Doireann’s Instagram recently to try and pry the relationship out of her, with James Kavanagh commenting: “Now that’s a dress to Mark the occasion .”

And Joanne McNally adding: “Love the dress but what’s the mark on your leg?”

While she has been hinting at it now for a while following her split from long-term boyfriend Paddy Wilson in April, Doireann has made her relationship with new boyfriend Mark Meighan official the only way millennials know how to – on Instagram.

Posting the sweetest 2022 highlights album on Instagram – and there was a lot of highlights – one featured an adorable picture of her and Mark.

Showing off snaps of her year which included her mum and Bertie, she threw in a snap of Mark so fans really weren’t kept in the dark, writing: “‘It’s been a time.”
