Ant McPartlin, 48, and his wife of three years, Anne-Marie Corbett, 46, have welcomed their first baby together.

The official Instagram account of Ant and TV partner Declan Donnelly announced the news and shared the adorable name, writing: ‘Welcome to the family Wilder Patrick McPartlin.

‘Born, 14/05/24 at 8.54am.

‘Baby is beautiful, Mummy’s a legend, Sisters are over the moon. Dad’s a mess!’

Rumours about a possibly pregnancy began swirling at the beginning of the year and in early February, the legendary I’m a Celebrity presenter’s step-father David Woodhall confirmed the baby news.

In a chat with The Sun, David spoke about Ant’s stepdaughters saying: ‘[Ant] will make a good dad. He’s good with the girls so he’ll be great.’

‘He’s very happy I think. I’m over the moon’.

Later that same month, fans were able to get some visual confirmation about this pregnancy as Anne-Marie showed off her huge baby bump while out in London.

The bump was visible as the couple was snapped leaving the London Palladium where Ant was presenting Britain’s Got Talent. Fans were delighted for the presenter who at long last was going to become a father.

Although he was previously married for many years, Ant hasn’t any children and but has two stepdaughters, his wife’s teenage children from her first marriage. 

A source told The Sun: ‘This is the news everyone wanted. Ant and Anne-Marie are beyond delighted.’

‘It’s no secret that Ant has always wanted children, but that it may never happen for him was something he had, sadly, come to terms with.’

‘When they found out last year, they were absolutely delighted, but obviously kept the news quiet for as long as possible.’

‘To be having a child two years short of his 50th birthday, with the love of his life, is the stuff of dreams for Ant.’

‘He’s already a wonderful, doting father to Anne-Marie’s kids, and together they’re going to be brilliant parents to this latest addition to the family.’

The couple lives in a lavish £6million property in Wimbledon, which is just a few miles from Ant’s former home with his ex-wife in Chiswick.

In an old Radio Times interview while still married to his ex Lisa Armstrong, Ant admitted that he and his ex, who he married in 2006 and split from in 2018, tried for a baby for several years.

‘There’s a rumour that we do everything together and I’m holding off having kids ‘til Dec finds himself Mrs Right. I love that idea, but I’m afraid it’s not true.’
