Loose Women host shares ‘worry’ for Ant McPartlin’s newborn son Wilder

The Loose Women panel sent their warmest congratulations to Ant McPartlin on the arrival of his first child during Wednesday, 15 May’s episode.

Ant, 48, and his wife Anne-Marie, 46, were overjoyed to welcome their baby boy into the world on Tuesday, 14 May. The couple, who exchanged vows in 2021, shared their delightful news on Instagram, having kept their pregnancy journey away from the public eye.

Anne-Marie gave birth to a bouncing baby boy, and the couple took to Instagram with a charming black-and-white snapshot of Ant cradling their new addition. In the heartwarming post, Ant revealed their son’s name, writing: “Welcome to the family. Wilder Patrick Mcpartlin. Born, 14/05/24 at 8.54am. Baby is beautiful, Mummy’s a legend, Sisters are over the moon. Dad’s a mess.”

During the show, the Loose Women stars, including Christine Lampard, Coleen Nolan, Linda Robson, and Gloria Hunniford, discussed the joyous news before diving into a discussion titled “Are men just as broody as women?”.

Christine, 45, commented: “Ant has always said he wanted to be a dad and very open about it, you cannot take away from the fact a lot of men just want to be daddies and they’re broody and they’re proud”, reports the Mirror.

Gloria Hunniford, 84, expressed her joy for Ant’s new arrival, saying: “I think we’re all very happy, particularly for Ant, because he made no secret of the fact he wanted a child and his wife, the lovely lady who has now given birth to this lovely boy, she had two little girls. So maybe as he was helping to raise those children, he suddenly thought even more: ‘I’d really like one of my own’.”

However, Gloria couldn’t help but share a cheeky concern: “I’m a bit worried about the name Wilder when he gets to that wild stage in his teens, it might take on a whole new meaning but I’m very happy for him” which led Christine Lampard to quip” “Or it might just be wholly appropriate, it might just be perfect!”
