Hurrah! Declan Donnelly And His Beautiful Wife Ali Astall Are Proud Parents Of A Baby Girl
On September 1, TV presenter Declan Donnelly and Ali Astall welcomed their baby girl to the world. Isla Elizabeth Anne was born sometime after 9 a.m., and was hale and hearty on arrival. Her mother was also doing great.
Earlier in March, the couple revealed that they were expecting a baby. Dec made the announcement on his Instagram after the information had already leaked.
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 pic.twitter.com/g7mZrWLYs4

Ali was expected to deliver in September, but the couple did not provide a specific date. A source familiar with the duo told The Sun that neither Dec nor Ali intended to talk about the pregnancy, but they were left with no choice.
Although the couple got married in 2015, they knew each other for over a decade. Ali was managing Declan and his TV host partner, Ant McPartlin. They decided to take their relationship to the next level when they moved in together in 2014. The rest is history.
In June, Declan and Ali made an appearance at the Royal Ascot at Ascot Racecourse, and the duo looked fantastic, Ali giving off that pregnant-lady shine.
Congratulations to the new dad and mom. And a very big welcome to Isla Elizabeth Anne.
