DEC Donnelly and wife Ali are expecting their first child.
A source close to Dec, 42, and 40-year-old Ali said: “They are both absolutely delighted to be expecting — especially as they have been trying for some time.”
The couple, who wed in 2015, have broken the happy news to Dec’s TV partner Ant McPartlin, who went into rehab this week after his drink-drive crash arrest.
It is thought 40-year-old Ali got pregnant shortly after Dec, 42, left the jungle in December following the last series of I’m A Celebrity.
But they kept it secret until they knew talent manager Ali had safely passed the crucial 12-week mark.
A source close to the pair, who wed in 2015 after knowing each other for a decade, said: “This has come at a difficult time for them both, given everything that Ant is now going through and the pressure that has put on Dec in the past week.
