Dublin star Bernard Brogan has revealed his wife Kiera Doyle is pregnant with their first child

Multi All Ireland winning Dublin Footballer Bernard Brogan today took to Twitter to announce that he and his new wife Kiera Doyle are expecting their first child.

Currently recovering from cruciate ligament surgery, performed back in February, Brogan is not expected to see much action in this current Championship campaign and if any it would be the latter stages of August.

So this news may very well have come at the best time for the happily wedded couple.

Bernard and Kiera tied the knot on December 30th of 2016 and despite the odd post on social media have been quite muted about their private life.

But clearly the news today was something the Oliver Plunkett Eoghan Raudh star forward wanted to share with everyone.

As expected the news has been met with a mountain of support and well wishes from friends and Dublin GAA fans from all parts of the social media landscape.

Brogan, 34, captioned the photo: “Here’s to summer 2018 ☀”

We’d like to wish Bernard and Kiera the best and congratulate them on their amazing news.
