Ant McPartlin has given fans a first look at a very poignant tattoo he has in honour of his family, as the TV presenter celebrated the birth of his first child with wife Anne-Marie on Tuesday.

Just days after he stepped out with best mate and presenting partner in crime Dec Donnelly for this year's BAFTA TV Awards, Ant was by wife Anne-Marie's side as she gave birth to their baby son - Wilder Patrick McPartlin. And the delighted Britain's Got Talent host was the one to break the big news on social media.

Taking to his and Dec's joint Instagram account, Ant wrote: "Welcome to the family. Wilder Patrick Mcpartlin.. Born, 14/05/24 at 8.54am. Baby is beautiful, Mummy’s a legend, Sisters are over the moon. Dad’s a mess!" As well as revealing the baby's name, the black and white photo Ant used to accompany the announcement gave a look at a family tree style inking he has on his arm.

As well as many famous friends and fans being quick to offer their congratulations to Ant, plenty of his and Dec's followers also picked up on the tattoo, with one responding: "Beyond happy for you Ant the final piece of the puzzle to make all your dreams come true congratulations to u amzie poppy and daisy enjoy every second of little wilder."
