Declan Donnelly has celebrated his fourth wedding anniversary – his first as a father – with a touching post from him and his wife Ali Astall.

The TV star shared a message on the Ant & Dec Instagram account, thanking fans for their “lovely messages”.

Donnelly, 43, said the day had been extra special because they had spent it with their nearly year-old “beautiful baby girl”.

He wrote: “I can’t believe this was 4 years ago today. It’s gone by so quickly. Thanks for all the lovely messages.

“We’re having a lovely anniversary, our first with our beautiful baby girl.”

He signed off the message with a baby emoji and the initials “D&A.”

The Britain’s Got Talent host also shared a black and white photo from his wedding to Astall, his former manager.

The pair married in 2015, tying the knot at St Michael’s Church in Elswick, Newcastle.

Donnelly and Astall reportedly received wedding messages from the Pope and Prince of Wales, with the presenter’s friend and Saturday Night Takeaway co-host Ant McPartlin as best man.

They welcomed their first child, a daughter called Isla Elizabeth Anne, in September last year.
