At the 2018 BAFTA TV Awards, none looked more glam than Ant & Dec talent manager Ali Astall, who is expecting her 1st child with husband-of-3-years, Dec Donnelly ?
Pregnant Ali stunned in a floor length, figure-hugging silver gown, which perfectly accentuated her 5-month baby bump.
And 42-year-old dad-to-be Dec looked proud as punch to be walking the red carpet beside his expectant wife.
The couple confirmed at the BAFTAs that their baby is due in September and are already impatient for their new arrival to make an appearance. “I just wish it would come out now,” confessed Ali, “that we could fast-forward to having the baby. We want to get on with it – we can’t wait.”
“Just wanted to say thank you for all the lovely messages,” Dec had previously written on Instagram following widespread media coverage when the happy news was announced (rather annoyingly) before they were ready to share.
“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”
P.S. Did you know Ali is from Newcastle, too? No, she’s no Geordie like Dec. She’s actually from the city of Newcastle in Australia! Funny that ?
