We verify the extension to the zero section of momentum construction of Kähler–Einstein metrics and Kähler–Ricci solitons on the total space $Y$ of positive rational powers of the canonical line bundle of toric Fano manifolds with possibly irregular Sasaki–Einstein metrics. More precisely, we show that the extended metric along the zero section has an expression which can be extended to $Y$, restricts to the associated unit circle bundle as a transversely Kähler–Einstein (Sasakian eta‑Einstein) metric scaled in the Reeb flow direction, and that there is a Riemannian submersion from the scaled Sasakian eta‑Einstein metric to the induced metric of the zero section.
