Ant popped the question on Christmas eve

Speaking during the grand finale of I'm a Celeb, Ant was asked by finalist Jordan North where his "happy place" was, to which Ant sweetly replied: "At home with my girlfriend and the kids." Jordan said back, "Oh, that's lovely!" 

Shortly after it was announced that Ant's marriage to Lisa Armstrong had come to an end in 2018, Anne-Marie was pictured outside their home. Then in June that year, news then broke that Ant and his former PA had struck up their relationship following a break from his career after his drink-driving conviction.

Ant moved in with Anne-Marie in 2018 and the couple bought a £6 million mansion in Wimbledon. Anne-Marie has two children from a previous relationship, and now the couple are also proud owners of two MaltiPoos, Milo and Bumble.
