Declan Donnelly has announced that he and his wife, Ali Astall, have become parents.

Ali gave birth to a baby girl just after 9am Saturday (1 September).

The Chiswick-based star, who is one half of the television team, Ant and Dec, announced the news officially on his Twitter page page saying "Ali and I are thrilled to announce the arrival of Isla Elizabeth Anne."

He added: "Mother and daughter both doing well, Dad is head over heels! D x."

Donnelly, 42, also shared a picture of his baby daughter's hand wrapped around his finger.

His long-time friend Ant McPartlin was quick to share his happiness, tweeting on their official Ant and Dec Twitter account, “Welcome to the world baby Isla Elizabeth Anne.

“Can’t wait for cuddles. I love you already!!”

Dec and Ali were married in 2015 and Ant, who was best man at their wedding, is currently taking a break from television presenting duties as he continues his rehabilitation.

Ali Astall had worked as Declan Donnelly's agent for several years before they started going out together and dated for over two years before Dec proposed in 2014 while in Australia filming 'I'm A Celebrity - Get Me Out of Here'.
