For years Declan Donnelly has been inseperable from his telly best friend Ant McPartlin as TV duo Ant and Dec - but Dec has paid tribute to his significant other half - wife Ali Astall as they celebrate four years of marriage.
The Geordie star, 43, got engaged to their manager Ali back in 2014 after a year of dating. And the pair tied the knot on 1 August 2015 St Michael’s Roman Catholic Church, Elswick, Tyne and Wear in a ceremony which was conducted by his brother Father Dermott Donnelly, a catholic priest, with Ant as his best man.
Dec took to Instagram to share a beautiful snap of them cutting the cake on their wedding day, and he captioned it, ‘I can’t believe this was 4 years ago today. It’s gone by so quickly. Thanks for all the lovely messages. We’re having a lovely anniversary, our first with our beautiful baby girl D&A x’
And the post has attracted a string of congratulations from their celebrity friends. This Morning host Phillip Schofield wrote,’Happy anniversary you gorgeous people xxx’.
Rochelle Humes added, ‘What a day it was ❤️ Happy Anniversary both of you x’ and Amanda Holden commented, ‘Gorgeous ❤❤❤’.
And fans couldn’t contain their excitement at the anniversary,’OMG 4 YEARS AGO. I REMEMBER THE TWEET YOU POSTED THAT MORNING I WAS CRYING MY EYES OUT HAPPY ANNIVERSARY DEC AND ALI I LOVE YOU BOTH SO MUCH.’ and another wrote, ‘Congrats to the both of you with many more to follow x’.
Dec and Ali have 11-month-old baby daughter Isla, and no doubt they will be all enjoying spending some quality time together as recently Dec has been busy filming Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions and has I’m A Celebrity due to start later in the autumn.
Congratulations Dec and Ali!
