Ant McPartlin’s family tree tattoo on his shoulder is a kick in the teeth for ex-wife Lisa Armstrong, a pal has claimed.

The Saturday Night Takeaway star, 48, has welcomed his first child with wife Anne-Marie Corbett, announcing the arrival of little Wilder on social media.

The pair seem absolutely chuffed with the TV personalityadmitting he’s a ‘mess’.

While they are playing happy families, many have spared a thought for Lisa Armstrong – Ant’s ex-wife of 11 years, who he was with for 23 years in total until their 2018 divorce.

In a black and white photo on social media of Ant holding the tot, his shoulder tattoo was revealed for the first time, showing a tree with the names of his wife, lovingly nicknamed Amzie, stepdaughters – Poppy and Daisy – and dogs, Milo and Bumble.

However, Ant and Lisa, 47, also share custody of their dog Hurley, who is missing from the ink.

‘These past 48 hours must have been a real kick in the teeth for Lisa,’ a source told The Sun.

‘This isn’t about the birth of a baby – which, of course, is wonderful news – it’s about it being played out across the country, and all the haunting memories of their latter, troubled years being dug-up again.

‘For their beloved Hurley, who turns 11 next month, to be conspicuous by his absence in that tattoo seems baffling.

‘This isn’t a case of “poor Lisa” though. She has moved on with her life and, frankly, couldn’t give a toss about what her ex-husband does in his personal life.’

The source added that having an ex-husband all over the news brings everything back for Lisa, who they claim never signed an NDA on their divorce.

Anne-Marie was previously the couple’s PA, with Lisa previously describing her as a friend.

She has been employed by the same London-based management company as Ali Astall, Declan Donnelly’s wife, for over a decade.

Dec was Ant’s best man for the second time when he and Anne-Marie tied the knot two years later in Hampshire.

Yesterday Lisa took to social media with a cryptic post following the news Ant and Anne-Marie had welcomed a child.

‘Be proud of how you’ve been handling these past few months,’ her Instagram Story read.

It continued: ‘The silent battles you’ve fought, the moments you had to humble yourself, the times you’ve wiped your own tears. Celebrate your strength.’

Ant first showed off a massive John Lennon tribute tattoo while presenting the hit ITV show I’m A Celebrity in 2022.

His forearm is emblazoned with a circular design, which has intricate triangular lines across it and the word ‘Imagine’ written in the middle.
