Mrs Brown’s Boys actor Paddy Houlihan lifts lid on marriage to gorgeous wife Emily

 The couple met while working on the hit show and they made things official after some gentle encouragement from the cast and crew before going on to welcome twin girls





Mrs. Brown's Boys actor Paddy Houlihan said his wife Emily was the first person to slag him just as much as he could slag her.

The couple met on the hit comedy show while Fiona O’Carroll, who plays Maria, was pregnant with her first child and Emily covered for her while she was on maternity leave.

After some gentle encouragement from the cast and crew, they went on to get married before welcoming twin girls.

Paddy, who plays Dermot Brown on the show, told RSVP Magazine: We hit it off straight away. She was the first person to slag me just as much as I could slag them, she was well able to give it back to me just as much as I could give it to her.

"She peaked my interest on set and I have been taking abuse from her ever since."

Paddy and Emily met in 2007 and before officially married in 2013.

He said: "Then the two girls came along in 2015, so it has been non-stop since we got married."

Paddy admitted that there is nothing strange about working alongside his wife because it is all they have ever known as a couple.

He said: "It is normal for us because we met on the show.

"There might be more stress if we were working together in an office but we have a very laid back work life.

"It was fun up until we did the musical because Emily is a great dancer and singer and I struggle at both.

"I found it hard to hear 'You are not doing this right' from my wife so that caused a bit of tension during rehearsals."

When they first began dating, there was no way they could keep it a secret on the Mrs. Brown's Boys set or on tour.

Paddy said: "We were being pushed towards each other, everyone saw something in the two of us.

"We couldn’t get a minute to chat without people asking, 'How are things going?' and the whole cast and crew made an effort to make our relationship happen.

"Even now, people still tell me I owe them a thanks or a drink because they all like to think they set us up but I like to think that I did some of the work myself."






He also recalled one night at a BBQ and show creator Brendan O'Carroll's house. He said: "We were at a party at Brendan and Jenny’s one night and we were sitting around a chiminea.

"Emily and I were chatting but the logs began to run out and Brendan was bringing out runners and God knows what to keep us chatting.

"By the time we got engaged, it was less about saying 'Congratulations' and it was more about saying 'Jesus, that took far too long, Paddy'.
