Welcoming their first child together

Pippa and Brian welcomed baby Ollie to the world on April 10 2013, almost two years after getting married.

Announcing the news on social media at the time, Brian told followers: "It’s such an incredible time and we are over the moon with our bundle of joy."

Pippa was reported to have first experienced contractions at 5am before a short labour with Ollie born at 9.43am at Mount Carmel Hospital.

By this time, Pippa had been documenting her pregnancy on her popular blog.

Their third boy, Billy, was born on October 23 2021. With Pippa announcing the news of his birth this time, she described the incredible feelings she had when she said: "Feeling so lucky and overwhelmed that he’s here.. I’ve been staring at him for 24 hours now. Days like these are hard to put into words.. but beyond grateful comes close."

Tragic loss

While Pippa O'Connor and Brian Ormond enjoy a full life with their three children, the couple did unfortunately experience a miscarriage after they had Louis.

"I went for my second scan and unfortunately there was no heartbeat," Pippa told her Instagram followers.

"We all know how common it is, unfortunately, but I still think it's kind of unsaid. I don't know when I would have said it if I wasn't lucky enough to be pregnant again now."

Their current family life

Pippa O'Connor and Brian Ormond now live in a stunning €1.3m Kildare house, having bought the luxury mansion back in 2017. The house is located within the exclusive K Club compound.

Pippa has occasionally given glimpses inside the house on Instagram during special occasions such as her son Ollie's Holy Communion.
