Declan Donnelly and Wife, Ali Astall, Are Expecting Their First Child

It's undoubtedly been a hard week for TV duo Ant and Dec following Ant McPartlin's drink-driving incident and a return to rehab, as Dec will have to present Saturday Night Takeaway by himself. However, Dec has revealed the good news that he and wife Ali are expecting their first child.

After the news leaked, the TV presenter took to Ant and Dec's joint Instagram account to thank everyone for their "lovely messages," saying: "The news has sneaked out a little earlier than we had hoped but Ali and I are delighted to be expecting our first child. Thanks for all the love, we really appreciate it ❤️ D x." The couple got married in 2015, 10 years after Ali started working as Dec's manager, and the two have reportedly wanted kids for some time now.

It's clear from the comment section on Instagram that fans want all the best for Ant and his recovery and that everyone is delighted for Dec and Ali. Congratulations to the growing family!
