After sharing their happy news, the Limerick native said her baby’s due date was expected be November 7th, the same day as Mark’s birthday.

However, after another scan, the fashion influencer says their baby’s actual due date would be around November 2nd.

Sharing a snap of a series of photos in chronological order throughout the pregnancy to document her bump’s growth, she wrote: “We made it to due date. Ready when you are baby #fullycooked #40weeks #duedate”

Taking to her stories, Louise gave an update to her 232,000 followers about how ready she is for her baby’s arrival, as well as detailing how she is spending the remainder of her pregnancy.

“It’s a waiting game now. I’m sore, tired & uncomfortable but soooo ready & excited to meet our little one whenever they decide to make their entrance.

“I’m not doing a whole pile, mainly just resting, waiting, bouncing on my ball (and exhausted doing those things) so excuse the quietness on here… it doesn’t necessarily mean I’ve given birth (although I hope it does soon hahaha).”
