ANT McPartlin is said to be “over the moon” that best friend Declan Donnelly is expecting a baby with wife Ali, despite reports the news was “bittersweet” for the star.
The dad-to-be, 42, confirmed he and wife Ali Astall, 40, are expecting their first child after The Sun On Sunday exclusively revealed the news.
A new report suggested Dec’s happy news had left Ant heartbroken that his life’s not in the same place as Dec’s.
However, sources close to the star say this couldn’t be further from the truth and he’s “made up” for his best pal.
Ant, 42, announced his divorce from wife Lisa Armstrong earlier this year and has gone back into rehab after being charged with drink driving.
The Mirror claimed the baby news hit Ant hard with a source saying: “Ant is thrilled for Dec and Ali but the news sparked other emotions because he has always wanted children.
“There is some heartache and it is a bittersweet moment. Ant has gone into rehab and has recently split from his wife Lisa, so his life is just not the same as the one Ant has right now.”
