DECLAN Donnelly and his wife Ali Astall have confirmed that their baby is due in September.
The pair attended The Baftas last night and spoke publically for the first time of their joy at becoming first time parents.
Speaking to The Mirror, Dec, 42, beamed and said it was “very exciting” and confirmed they’d be welcoming their child in September.
Meanwhile Ali, 40, who looked stunning in a silver sequined dress, revealed she just wanted time to hurry up.
She said: “I just wish it would come out now, that we could fast-forward to having the baby. We want to get on with it – we can’t wait.”
On March 24, The Sun on Sunday revealed the couple were expecting their first child.
A close source told The Sun that they wanted to keep it a secret until Ali was past the 12-week mark.
The pair first broke the news to close friends and family, including Ant McPartlin, until Dec's wife was safely over that period.
Ant is reportedly "over the moon" while Ant's estranged wife Lisa Armstrong also liked Dec's tweet about the good news.
Dec thanked fans on Twitter for their “love” as he opened up about the pregnancy.
The 42-year-old star shared a romantic throwback from his and wife Ali Astall's wedding day and wrote: "Just wanted to say thank you for all the lovely messages. 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 back in 2015, enjoying an intimate ceremony in Newcastle.
Ali is an Australian talent manager who works with other celebrities, including Holly Willoughby and Fearne Cotton.
She and Dec had known each other for a decade before getting married but started dating in August 2013.
Co-host Ant was best man, and around 200 guests attended their nuptials.
