Spencer Matthews has celebrating being sober for seven months with a touching post about how it has made him a better husband and father.
The former ‘Made in Chelsea’ star took to Instagram on Monday (08.01.19) to mark his seventh month teetotal, and admitted being alcohol-free has allowed him to be “the best” husband to Vogue Williams – who he tied the knot with at an intimate ceremony in June 2018 at his family’s estate – and father to their four-month-old son Theodore.
The 30-year-old star also teased that he has a number of “amazing projects” in the pipeline.
Sharing a picture of himself by the pool, which showed off his ripped body, Spencer wrote:
“Been sober 7 months now and cannot begin to explain the difference in my life… 2018 for me was a complete game changer and I now feel like the best version of myself. Happy, active, busy and focused.
Being the best husband to @voguewilliams and the best father to Theodore is priority number one and always will be.
Lots of amazing projects happening this year that I can’t wait to share with you all.
Onwards and upwards is the only way!! Much love x (sic)”
Meanwhile, Spencer and Vogue’s new show, ‘Spencer, Vogue and Baby Too’, which followed the couple as they prepared to become parents for the first time, debuted on E4 shortly after Spencer shared his sobriety post.
The couple first met whilst competing on ‘The Jump’ in 2017, and during the episode, Vogue poked fun at Spencer for being “more into himself” than she was during their time on the celebrity winter sports show.
“Spencer was way more into me than I was him”,
to which he replied:
“Pretty sure I told you I loved you on our first date.”
The 32-year-old Irish presenter then quipped:
“I went for the smaller man, never thought I would.”
They also revealed that they knew from the get-go that they were having a baby boy.
Spencer said of the birth:
“I was like, ‘Is that the umbilical cord?’ She was like, ‘No, that’s his penis’, I was like, ‘Wow … kid’s packing!'”
