Baby Born: 4 January 2014
On June 2007 Andrea Corr and Brett Desmond (the eldest son of billionaire businessman Dermot Desmond) began to date.
On December 2008, they got engaged. It was a very happy Christmas for singer Andrea Corr after she got engaged to her stockbroker boyfriend Brett Desmond.
Brett popped the question to the pint-sized Dundalk beauty with a €70,000 diamond ring in his father`s lavish Sandy Lane hotel in Barbados on Christmas Day.
A stunned Andrea was said to have wept with joy upon immediately accepting his proposal.
The notoriously private couple, who are rarely photographed together, have been dating for almost two years. They divide their time between Brett`s swish London apartment and Andrea`s South Dublin home.
A holidaymaker in Barbados told the Sunday Independent how the couple went to mass together on Christmas Day.
On Friday August 21st 2009 they married at St. Joseph`s Church, Miltown Malbay, Co. Clare (Ireland). The bride wore cream, but the dominant colour in the marriage was black.
Black-tie wearing guests arrived in expensive black marques, some with blacked out windows, for the wedding which took place in the beautiful hilltop church of St Joseph’s.
The most studied entrance was by U2 singer Bono who turned up fashionably late with his wife Ali in a black Maserati.
Other guests took buses which were laid on to and from the Doonbeg Golf and Spa Resort where the lavish reception was held.
Among the early arrivals were two former managers of Celtic football club, Gordon Strachan and Martin O’Neill – Dermot Desmond being a major shareholder in the club – and golfer Pádraig Harrington and his wife, Caroline.
Also there were racehorse owner and business tycoon Michael Tabor, comedian Patrick Kielty, model Pamela Flood and MCD promoter Denis Desmond (no relation) and his wife, Caroline.
About 400 guests attended the wedding. The same number of locals and passersby ringed the church railings to see the wedding party and guests.
The bridesmaids, Andrea Corr’s sisters Caroline Corr Woods and Sharon Corr Bonner, her now sister-in- law Zoe Desmond and her childhood friend Niamh McElwaine, wore full-length blue dresses.
Shortly after 2.55pm, the bride arrived to an appreciative cheer from the crowd.
Wearing a strapless cream Vera Wang wedding dress, Andrea (35) was kissed by her sister Sharon when she alighted from the car. She waved to the crowd and gave a broad smile.
The chief celebrant of the Mass was Fr Malachy Murphy, a friend of the Corr family, and it was concelebrated by Fr Joseph Brennan SJ, Fr Simon Sleeman and the Rev Battie Desmond, friends and family of the groom.
During the Mass, The Corrs’ mother Jean, who died when the band’s fame was at its height 10 years ago, was remembered in the prayers of the faithful.
The couple chose Mark Knopfler’s The Irish Boy, from the movie Cal, as the entrance song. They left the church afterwards to applause and a version of Planxty O’Connor arranged by Donal Lunny.
“It was a very tasteful service,” said one guest, “there was no rubbish at all. It was dead simple and lovely.”
After the wedding party left, locals marked the occasion by taking souvenirs in the form of some of the beautiful and expensive flower displays in the church.
Andrea has admitted to feeling broody in the past after spending time with her siblings` children.
She said: "I want to have children, and I want to give them that same sense of security that my parents gave me.
"That`s what I`m looking forward to. I do believe in love and I do believe in fidelity and I hope that I achieved that some day."
