Lottie Ryan admits she was weirded out by being called a 'geriatric mother'

She welcomed her son, Wolf, last summer.

And we love seeing snippets of the little dote on Lottie Ryan's social media.

Ryan recently revealed that she has given little Wolf, whom she shares with husband Fabio Aprile, the name 'Ryan' as a middle name – in honour of her dad.

However, when it comes to being pregnant and welcoming her first child at the age of 36, the 2fm DJ said she was ‘taken aback’ when she heard she was tagged as an older mum.

Speaking on Virgin Media’s Ireland AM earlier this week, Ryan explained:

‘On one of my first hospital appointments when I went in, they referred to me as a “geriatric mother”. I was a little bit taken aback.’

However, the mum-of-one revealed that her boss, Don Healy, had taken the sting out of being called 'geriatric' for her.

‘He said to me, “you’re in good company, don’t worry Lottie, Meryl Streep was a geriatric mother on her first baby.”’

Keeping busy, the 36-year-old made a stunning return to RTE’s Dancing With The Stars last weekend – just six months after welcoming little Wolf.

To kick things off, Ryan performed a salsa to the theme song of Dora The Explorer from Dora and the Lost City of Gold, alongside former DWTS partner Pasquale LaRocca.

Ryan, who won the glitterball back in 2020, did however admit she did definitively feel a little nervous ahead of the show.

"I’d be lying if I didn’t say there was a little bit of vomit in the rehearsal studio, trying to get myself up to speed," she revealed.

"I had about 48 hours to get it together this time."
