Ant McPartlin and wife Anne-Marie Corbett are expecting their first child together, the presenter’s family has confirmed.

The 48-year-old TV star will be a first-time father when the baby arrives in June.

Following weeks of swirling rumours, Ant’s step-father David Woodhall shared a touching statement.

Confirming their pregnancy, David said of Ant:’“He will make a good dad.

‘He’s good with the girls so he’ll be great.’

David added to The Sun: ‘He’s very happy I think. I’m over the moon.’

Previous reports said the couple, who married three years ago, are ‘beyond delighted’ at the happy news.

‘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,’ a source told The Sun.

‘To be having a child with the ‘love of his life’ is the ‘stuff of dreams for Ant,’ they added.

Anne-Marie has two children from a previous relationship. Ant was previously married to make-up artist Lisa Armstrong and spoke about his desire to become a father in an interview 12 years ago.

‘Lisa and I would love to have kids. We’re trying. It’s tougher than you think when you get a bit older,’ he told Radio Times.

‘We’ve wanted children for a while but we’re both busy.

‘So Lisa and I are trying for a baby… well, we’ve been trying for a little while so fingers crossed.’

His long-time co-presenter Declan Donnelly has two children with his wife Ali – Isla, five, and Jack, one, who has the middle name Anthony, in honour of their friendship.

Before beginning work on Britain’s Got Talent, Ant and Anne-Marie took a trip to Dubai.
