GAA star, Bernard Brogan speaks out on facing the difficulties that the first year of marriage brings.
Having wed Kiera Doyle in a stylish celebration in December (who can forget those stunning turquoise jumpsuits?), The GAA star has opened up about the first four months of married life. Joking to the Irish Independent, Bernard said,
“Married life is good, we’re still hanging in there anyway which is positive.”
Speaking at the launch of the One for Ireland campaign, Bernard laughed about the pressure he and his new wife have experienced from friends and family to have a baby.
“It’s like anything; it’s the natural course of things. When you’re going out with someone, they’re pressuring you to get married, then they’re pressuring you to have kids and all of that. No one’s ever happy to stay in the moment and enjoy it.”
So will we be hearing the pitter-patter of tiny feet anytime soon?
Not according to this GAA star. By his own admission Bernard is simply, ‘enjoying life’.
“We’re newly married and enjoying ourselves. We’re busy moving into a new house, we’re getting works done there. It’s a million miles an hour. There’s training and work and all of that, so we’re just living in the present, as they say.”
The couple tied the knot in December at Thomastown Church, Co. Kilkenny before moving on to a marquee reception at Mount Juliet. Although the wedding was only four months ago, Bernard remarks that it seems a ‘million years ago’.
Opting for a December wedding due to it winter month being the footballer’s off-season, it seems life has been busy for the star since returning from his luxury honeymoon to South Africa in January.
“I was straight back into training, into the hard stuff with Dublin, so it seems like a long time ago, but it’s really positive.”
