 In the interview, Billy revealed that his little girl so far isn't into watching television, but instead prefers to spend time outside. When asked if she was into Peppa Pig and Paw Patrol, he replied: "Not really. She is out all day long. So, she is not really watching a lot of TV. I’m sure she will soon enough!"

Billy and Alexis, an accomplished equestrian and a former Morgan Stanley executive, first met in a restaurant, and were "friends for a while before we started dating", Alexis previously told the New York Daily News.

The A-list couple married in a surprise ceremony on 4 July back in 2015, at the singer's Long Island estate. Guests included Billy's daughter Alexa, and actor Kevin James. A month later, the couple welcomed baby Della, introducing their new bundle of joy to the world with a sweet photograph showing her lying in her mum's arms.
