TV presenter Ant McPartlin has announced the birth of his first child.

The new dad announced the news on his Instagram page last night.

The presenter confirmed his partner Anne-Marie Corbett gave birth to their first child on May 14th.

Alongside the photo, the new dad said” “Welcome to the family Wilder Patrick McPartlin.

“Born, 14/05/24 at 8.54am. Baby is beautiful, Mummy’s a legend, Sisters are over the moon. Dad’s a mess!” he said.

The name Wilder is of English origin and means ‘wild’ and ‘untamed’.

The moniker is often used as a surname, but it has been used as a first name in more recent years.

Their baby boy is Ant’s first child, but his wife Anne-Marie is a mum to two daughters.

Ant and Anne-Marie have been together since 2018, but they tied the knot in the August of 2021.

Anne-Marie used to work as the presenter’s personal assistant.

They have kept a low profile since they started dating and only confirmed Anne-Marie’s pregnancy in February 2024.

Ant’s special news comes after both he and Declan Donnelly confirmed they were taking a break from Saturday Night Takeaway.

They explained that they were stepping back so they could spend more time with their families.
