She's been keeping out of the limelight since becoming a first-time mother, but it looks like Andrea Corr is loving parenthood.
The Corrs frontwoman, 38, took out her four-month-old daughter Jean in a baby carrier as she shopped in Dublin city centre on Sunday afternoon.
Wearing a black shirt dress and trainers, Andrea took little Jean out for a spot of retail therapy as she picked up some goodies from Brown Thomas department store in Grafton Street.

Baby Jean was named after Andrea's late mother, who died of an asthma attack in 1999 when she was just 57.
Andrea announced Jean's birth on her Twitter page on April 28 with a statement reading: 'Delighted to announce the birth of Andrea's beautiful little baby girl Jean a few hours ago. Mother and baby are doing great.'
The arrival of baby Jean meant Andrea was the last of her Corr bandmates and siblings to become a parent.

Older brother Jim, 47, has a son Brandon; sister Caroline, 38, has three children Jake, Georgina and Rihann, while Sharon, 41, is mother to Cathal and Flori.
Baby Jean is the first child for Andrea and husband Brett Desmond, 34, who married in a lavish ceremony in County Clare, Ireland in August 2009.
The singer wore Vera Wang as they wed in front of 400 guests, including U2 rocker Bono and his wife Ali Hewson, comedian Patrick Kielty, Scottish football manager Gordon Strachan and Irish golfer Padraig Harrington.

Last year, while promoting her second solo album Lifelines, she admitted she was looking forward to starting a family.
She told the Telegraph: 'I'm as ready as I’ll ever be. And from what I'm told you're never really ready. You can't say you're not ready for ever, so you might as well go for it. If that happens that would be a priority.
'I'm not not allowing it to happen, if you see what I mean. I'm leaving it to He Who Knows Best, and she, my (late) mother. I believe she’s up there working away. I think she looks after me.'
