Declan Donnelly’s wife Ali Astall cut a casual figure as she stepped out in London this week, following her husband’s BAFTA win on Sunday night.
Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, known, of course, as Ant & Dec, won the award for best entertainment for their hit ITV show, Saturday Night Takeaway, at the BAFTA TV Awards 2022 on Sunday night.
Ali, 43, who married Dec, 46, in 2015, wasn’t present at the awards with her husband and his longtime presenting partner, Ant, 46, although Ant’s partner Anne-Marie Corbett was in attendance.
Ali looked comfortable and casual on her outing in West London, as she picked up some storage baskets.
She sported black leggings, a loose grey light blue hoodie over a white T-shirt and flower printed sliders as she went about her errands.
Her blonde hair was pulled back in a low ponytail and she wore a pair of sunglasses atop her head.
Ali and Dec married in Dec’s native Newcastle in 2015, although they knew each other for nearly two decades after meeting through work.
Their professional relationship developed into a romantic one, and now they share a daughter together, three year old Isla Elizabeth Anne Donnelly.
Ali largely keeps herself out of the spotlight, however she has been seen supporting her husband Dec on a number of showbiz occasions.
She was also born in Newcastle and is a talent manager, who has worked alongside the likes of Fearne Cotton and Holly Willoughby.
She actually worked as Dec’s talent manager for ten years, before the two finally made things romantic.
Ali announced that she was pregnant in March 2018, and their little girl was born in September of that same year.
Dec announced the news of the birth of baby Isla on 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.
He continued: “Mother and daughter both doing well, Dad is head over heels! D x.”
In Ant & Dec’s book, Once Upon a Tyne, Dec opened up about his daughter, writing: "Becoming a dad has completely transformed me. At first, like all expectant parents, I didn't truly understand how much it was going to change me.
"I just thought it was another little person coming to live in the house… It opened up a whole other side to me, a side I didn't know existed.
"I felt a love that I didn't realise it was possible to feel. Everything I do, every day, is for my daughter now."
