Despite juggling twin boys, Michaella seemed to be having a day off from parenting duties as she sat outside and sipped on a coffee.
After enjoying a glimpse of sunshine, the duo headed inside ‘Synge and Byrne’ for a bite to eat.
The outing comes just days after Mail Online reported Michaella is set to cash in after holding talks about a TV series based on her book about her criminal past.
The glamorous 25-year-old has been busy forging a new career since leaving jail in Peru three years ago and has been juggling meetings with being a mother to her twin boys.

She was set to release her book House of Women last year detailing her time in the hellhole prison in South America before the publication was delayed.
The mother-of-two has now met with a TV production company in London to discuss ambitious plans to take her story to the small screen – with the prospect of releasing her book to coincide with it.
And if all goes to plan, Ms McCollum is set to make thousands from the Narco-like series and become ‘very rich from it’.
A well-placed source said: ‘True crime dramas have never been more successful and companies are always looking for the next one.
‘There is huge demand, real life is often stranger than fiction. Think Netflix series Narcos, based on druglord Pablo Escobar, or The People vs OJ Simpson.’
