Declan Donnelly is 'head over heels' at the birth of his first child

While much of the celebrity world is congratulating Declan Donnelly after welcoming his first child with wife Ali Astall, David Walliams has a slightly different approach.

Geordie TV presenter Declan Donnelly and his wife Ali say they're "thrilled" to announce the arrival of their first baby, a little girl who they've named Isla Elizabeth Anne.

'Can't wait for cuddles.

Dec announced the new arrival via Instagram and Twitter earlier this afternoon, as he posted an adorable snap of the newborn's hand.

Ruth Langsford said: "Congratulations Dec & Ali.wonderful news".

"Mother and daughter both doing well, Dad is head over heels!" "I love you already!"

ArsTechnica reports that the group has in fact "consistently fought against both federal and state-level net neutrality rules". It also stops internet service providers and wireless operators from blocking or throttling content that they don't agree with.

Dec and Ali tied the knot in a stunning ceremony in his Newcastle hometown back in 2015 - just one year after the pair struck up a romance and moved in together.

"The news has sneaked out a little earlier than we had hoped but Ali and I are delighted to be expecting our first child".

Speaking about the news, Dec said: "I am hugely grateful to Holly for agreeing to accompany me to Australia this year".

He was banned from driving for 20 months after the incident in March and fined £86,000.

No date has been announced for the return of the ITV jungle-set reality show, but last year's series launched at the end of November - funnily enough, with a joke about Willoughby replacing McPartlin.
