Declan Donnelly’s been pictured for the first time since welcoming his daughter with wife Ali Astall.
Beaming for the cameras, the presenter looked elated after confirming that his baby daughter, Isla Elizabeth Anne, had been born at 9am on Saturday morning.
Revealing the news to his 6.70million Twitter followers, Dec wrote : “Ali and I are thrilled to announce the arrival of our baby girl, Isla Elizabeth Anne, who was born just after 9 o’clock this morning. Mother and daughter both doing well, Dad is head over heels! D x”
Dressed down in casual clothes, the Geordie star couldn’t wipe the smile off his face as he returned home after visiting his wife and newborn daughter in the hospital.
And just hours before, Ant McPartlin was pictured visiting the Donnellys after tweeting: “Welcome to the world baby Isla Elizabeth Anne. Can’t wait for cuddles. I love you already!! Uncle Ant xxxxx”
The presenter – who’s currently taking time off work after a stint in rehab – is apparently already “besotted” with the little girl.
The pair’s arrival comes just weeks before Dec’s set to host I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in Australia, however, Holly Willoughby’s confirmed Ali Astall and baby Isla will be heading down under with them as she gets set to replace Ant on the show.
This is Dec and wife Ali’s first child together after they revealed the happy news they were expecting a baby together back in March.
