Dec posted a black and white image of he and Ali from their wedding day, with 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".

The couple went on to have a beautiful baby girl on September 1 who they named Isla Elizabeth.

How did Ali meet Dec?

Ali used to work as Dec's talent manager for 10 years, before the two began a romantic relationship in 2013. 

Over the years, whenever she and Dec were single, the pair used to "hang out" on Valentine's Day, before discovering that they actually had feelings for each other. 

Dec previously explained: "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."
