Ant McParlin ‘confirms’ he is expecting his first child with wife Anne-Marie Corbett

Ant McParlin has reportedly confirmed that he is expecting his first child with wife Anne-Marie Corbett.
The 48-year-old married his former personal assistant to him and his ex-wife Lisa Armstrong, in 2021.
The I’m A Celeb presenter has previously opened up about his desire to become a father.

It was previously rumoured back in December that Anne-Marie could be pregnant.
In photos published by the MailOnline, the 46-year-old was seen appearing to be several months pregnant as she arrived at Heathrow Airport in London with Ant at the time.
An onlooker told the publication: “He couldn’t stop smiling, he looked like the happiest man in the world.”

According to The Sun, Ant has already shared the happy news with his close friend and onscreen sidekick Declan Donnelly.
Anne-Marie, who shares two children with her husband from her previous marriage, is believed to have already had her five-month scan.
A source told the outlet: “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.”
The source went on to describe Ant as a “wonderful doting father” to Anne-Marie’s children and said the couple did everything in their power to keep the news a secret for as long as possible.
Adding: “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.”

Ant has previously been open about his desire to become a father.
In 2013 he revealed his struggles with his ex-wife, saying: “There’s a rumour that I’m holding off having kids till Dec finds himself Mrs Right.”
“I love that idea, but I’m afraid it’s not true. Lisa and I would love to have kids. We’re trying. It’s tougher than you think when you get a bit older.”

The pair split in 2018 after Ant checked into rehab for addiction issues.
They were married for 12 years and it is believed that the couple spent years trying for a baby.
The Newcastle native met his current wife, Anne-Marie, when she began working for the couple.

A friend told the outlet: “Anne-Marie was Lisa’s friend, and she was heavily involved in getting her the job working for the McPartlins.”
“Lisa would send Anne-Marie’s children birthday and Christmas presents, she even went on holiday with them, and then bang, it all changed.”
Ant previously described his wife as “his rock”, stating: “She’s a beautiful soul. We’re very happy. I’m in the best place I’ve been in my life. It’s great.
