Declan Donnelly’s Baby And Wife – Who Are They?
We’re looking at Declan Donnelly’s baby and his wife of two years to find out more about the family of one of TV’s most popular hosts!
Currently setting up their temporary home in Australia for this 2019’s I’m A Celebrity, TV host Declan Donnelly and his wife Ali Astall have had A LOT on their plate this year.
With the arrival of the baby daughter 14 months ago and Dec’s BGT gig, the couple have had a busy few months. But who exactly is Dec’s wife and what do we know about their little one?
From how Dec and Ali met, to her job and their wedding day, we’ve got everything you need to know about the special lady in Dec’s life…
Who is Ali Astall?
Born in Newcastle, Australia, Ali, 40, moved to the UK when she was in her 20s. There, she began work as a talent manager. Before they got together, Ali was Dec’s manager for around a decade. As well as dealing with her now-partner, Ali also works with a bunch of other famous celebs, from Fearne Cotton to Holly Willoughby.
They Tied The Knot In 2015
Although the couple got married quickly after becoming an item in 2014, they’d already known each other for around ten years. Dec revealed:
“We always hung out.
“When she was single and I was single we’d go out for dinner on Valentine’s Day together.
“Last year we went out as a couple. It was a little strange because we’ve had a working relationship for so long.”
The pair wed in 2015 (a year after getting together) at a ceremony in Newcastle. Of course, Ant McPartlin was Dec’s best man, and around 200 guests watched the couple say ‘I do’. These included a bunch of VIP guests like Marvin and Rochelle Humes and Tess Daly.

They Welcome Their Daughter Isla Elizabeth In 2018
Dec announced the news of Ali’s pregnancy on his own and his joint social media channels with Ant, as the media found out earlier than they’d hoped.
Dec posted a photo of him and Ali from their wedding day. He included the caption:
“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”.
As expected, the pair went on to have a baby girl on September 1st 2018 who they named Isla Elizabeth.
The presenter broke the news on his Twitter writing:
Ali and I are thrilled to announce the arrival of our baby girl, Isla Elizabeth Anne, who was born just after 9 o’clock this morning. Mother and daughter both doing well, Dad is head over heels! D x pic.twitter.com/LZ409o6kYK
