Minister for Higher Education Simon Harris has announced he and his wife Caoimhe are expecting their second child “very soon”.
Mr Harris shared the news in an Instagram post from a family holiday in the west of Ireland.
“In the West on a short break and the last before Saoirse becomes a big sister,” he wrote alongside a picture of a toy and a baby blanket.
“Our new arrival is due very soon.”
He added: “Caoimhe and I are excited and looking forward to Saoirse having a little brother or sister.”
The couple welcomed their first child in January 2019.
