There's no denying that Declan Donnelly is one doting brother! Last year, the Britain's Got Talent host enjoyed a night out with his family in honour of his sister Moira's 50th birthday. The TV star was pictured in two rare photos from April 2019 with his older sister from her party in Ponteland, Newcastle - and their family resemblance is uncanny. One snap showed Dec, who was dressed in a navy jumper and pale blue shirt, standing with his arm wrapped around his sister, who looked glamorous in a vibrant jumpsuit. Meanwhile, a second photo – shared on Twitter by the fan account @allantanddec – showed Moira giggling as Dec spoke into a microphone.

The images received a lot of attention from the presenter's fans, who loved the rare glimpse of Dec's family. "How lovely. It's rare to see him with his siblings," one commented. "Wow first time I've ever seen one of Dec's siblings, she looks lovely and great smiles run in the Donnelly clan," another wrote.

Dec is the youngest of seven children born to Northern Irish parents Alphonsus and Anne Donnelly. As well as Moira, the TV personality has two sisters, Camelia and Patricia, and three brothers, Eamonn, Dermott, and Martin.

In the past few years, Dec and his wife Ali Astall have welcomed another new addition to the family – their daughter Isla, who was born in September 2018. The first-time dad has spoken candidly about his parenting experiences, and admitted that it is the hardest thing he’s ever done.

"No one tells you how hard being a parent is!" Dec told Evening Standard last year. "We could have had a warning! It is literally the hardest thing I’ve ever done but I’m loving it." Nonetheless, Dec is understandably besotted with his baby girl, and told fans he was “head over heels” with their new arrival in an Instagram post announcing her birth.
