“It’s a lovely little life surprise. It’s a lovely thing.”
Dennis previously confirmed the relationship to the Mail on Sunday, saying: “I am very, very happy, we are so very happy.”
The pair, who did not start dating until after Outnumbered had finished filming, have both had previous marriages.
Outnumbered began in 2007 and aired until 2014.
Tyger Drew-Honey, Daniel Roche and Ramona Marquez starred as the children in the TV favourite.
It returned on Boxing Day in 2016 after a three-year hiatus, with the Brockman children having grown up.
