Exciting times ahead for the football All Star...could he be set to swap free kicks for night feeds?

The Plunketts club man married PR executive Kiera in December 2016 in her hometown of Kilkenny and the celebrations continued in the plush Mount Juliet hotel.

The post gathered a lot of attention from fans and well-wishers expressed their delight in the comment section.

One wrote: "Congratulations Bernard. A future Dublin player in the making be it boy or girl."

"Enjoy the sleep while you can! But exciting times ahead," joked another follower.

One Instagrammer, however, was quick to point out that the baby could indeed be an "All Ireland final baby!"
