Dec Donnelly and his wife Ali Astall are expecting their first child
It comes after a hard week for the Saturday Night Takeaway star.
Dec Donnelly and wife Ali are expecting their first child, according to reports.
A source close to the couple told The Sun : “They are both absolutely delighted to be expecting — especially as they have been trying for some time.”
It is believed that 40-year-old Ali became pregnant shortly after Dec, 42, finished filming I’m A Celebrity in December.
“They have both always wanted a family but worried that it might not happen for them. They have been keeping the pregnancy a closely guarded secret, but now that Ali is safely over 12 weeks, they are starting to let people know," the source added.
It comes after a hard week for the TV host, after Ant McPartlin was arrested and charged for drink driving following a car crash last weekend. His friend's personal problems mean that Dec will be forced to host the final two episodes of Saturday Night Takeaway alone.
Congratulations to Dec and Ali on the baby news!!! You’ll be great parents👶🏼❤️❤️ @antanddec
