Dawn O'Porter And Chris O'Dowd Announce Baby News With Ice Bucket Challenge

Now that's a different way of announcing your exciting baby news.


Chris O'Dowd and Dawn O'Porter revealed they're expecting their first baby - during Chris' ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Actor Chris proceeds with his challenge and, after a few curse words at how cold it was, gives out his nominations.

One of them includes 'Baby O'Porter', before the camera then pans to Dawn, who is showing off a visible baby bump in bikini bottoms and a T-shirt.

She is ready and waiting to pour a mini jug of iced water over her bump, and both stars are giggling away. Cute.

Dawn then took to Twitter and explained the move, writing: "Thought we'd better mention, before I got O'Busted!"

Chris and Dawn married in 2012 after meeting at her 30th birthday party in LA.

Journalist and TV star Dawn has recently landed a new Channel 4 fashion programme, called This Old Thing, which, according to the Irish Independent, takes on a "vintage virgin" each week and shows them how to make the most of second-hand clothes.

Dawn recently said she got a little shirty with constant questions about when she was planning to have a baby.

According to the Daily Mail, she said: "I think it's a really natural question to ask and I totally understand why people do.

"But I get slightly shirty because Chris could do seven interviews on the trot and not get asked once about me or if we're going to have kids."

But she certainly looks over the moon with her news. Ahh, big congrats.

Which other stars are expecting - or have welcomed - a new addition this year?
