Ant Mc­partlin al­ways wanted a fam­ily. Is An­nemarie about to make that dream come true?

And fans think the TV pre­sen­ter could have some news…

Heat (UK) - - Contents -

Spec­u­la­tion was rife last week that Ant Mc­partlin’s new girl­friend Anne-marie Cor­bett could be ex­pect­ing a baby. The cou­ple were snapped leav­ing celeb hang­out The Ivy after a meal to­gether – and many fans took to the in­ter­net to share their re­ac­tion to the pho­tos. “She looks sus­pi­ciously preg­nant,” said one, while an­other hoped the ru­mours were true, say­ing, “I hope that she is preg­nant, be­cause Ant has said be­fore that he re­ally loved the thought of be­ing a dad.”

Ant be­gan dat­ing Anne-marie ear­lier this year, fol­low­ing the break­down of his mar­riage to Lisa Arm­strong, and while they’ve been pic­tured to­gether be­fore, this is the first time they’ve cho­sen to go out to a high-pro­file celeb spot, which at­tracts pa­parazzi. It shows how com­fort­able they are in their re­la­tion­ship and they ap­pear keen to let ev­ery­one know how happy they are.

Dur­ing Ant’s 11-year mar­riage to Lisa, the cou­ple never had chil­dren, but Ant re­vealed he’d al­ways wanted to start a fam­ily. Back in 2013, Ant, 42, said, “Lisa and I would love to have kids. We’re try­ing. It’s tougher than you think when you get older.” And less than two years ago – in Fe­bru­ary 2017 – he ad­mit­ted, “We would love to have a fam­ily, so fin­gers crossed. If we’re blessed with chil­dren, then we’d be over the moon.”

After be­ing ar­rested for drinkdriv­ing and fined £86,000 back in April, Ant has spent time in re­hab, and it was re­vealed re­cently that he just cel­e­brated six months’ so­bri­ety. This has led many to be­lieve he is clean­ing up his act to start a fam­ily with his former PA, Anne-marie, also 42.

One per­son who will be less than pleased to hear the ru­mours is Ant’s es­tranged wife. As heat re­ported last week, the make-up artist is said to be dev­as­tated at the thought of Ant hav­ing chil­dren with an­other woman. Fans of 41year-old Lisa were quick to sup­port her in the wake of the spec­u­la­tion, de­scrib­ing it as “a punch in the gut”.

But, while it is no doubt a tricky time for her right now, Lisa is at least able to dis­tract her­self with her work on Strictly Come Danc­ing. Last week, she posted a photograph of hand­some pro­fes­sional dancer Al­jaž Ško­r­janec with a lip­stick mark on his neck, cap­tion­ing the cheeky photo, “It’s a hard job some­times!! #al­i­jaz #redlips #mykiss #it­was­ntme.”
