“It worked out perfectly because Tommy just flew to a boxing camp in America and Molly hates being alone.
“Maura is going to stay there until she finds out what she wants to do next and where she wants to live. “

Just two weeks before the announcement, Maura spoke to MailOnline about the prospect of a wedding and the joy they were together.
“Like all couples where we have our quarrels, he does silly things like leaving the refrigerator door open. We talked about getting married – we talked a lot about where we’d like to get married and would I love Ireland or England stuff like that…
“I feel like I would probably want an Irish wedding, which is a crazy big party. I’ve had a picture in my head for years, but everyone I know who got married always says, ‘you’ll never wear what you thought’. I would like something very simple …
“I don’t feel like I’m even going to cover on my wedding day!”
