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 Co Mayo.
“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.”
Mr Harris married Caoimhe Wade, a cardiac nurse, in 2017, before welcoming their first daughter in 2019.
