Loved-up Cat Deeley and Patrick Kielty have announced they are expecting their first child together. The couple, who married in a secret ceremony in Rome, Italy in 2012, shared the exciting news online.
Tv presenter Cat Deeley, 38, said the pair are “so happy” to be adding a bundle of joy to their household.

Irish comedian Patrick Kielty has previously joked about the possibility of having children.
He said: “I hope any child we might have has Cat’s looks and my accent. With our two strong accents, we basically needed subtitles or a UN translator.”
The pair met when they presented Fame Academy together in 2002.
They remained close friends for almost a decade before going public as a couple in March 2012. Their wedding at St Isidore’s College Church was a closely guarded secret and a very intimate affair with only immediate family and six friends each.
Meanwhile, Patrick revealed: “There was always a little bit of a spark between us but either she was with someone or I was with someone and by the time we were both single she was in America. It was always one of those things that never worked out.”
