Loose Women star points out detail with Ant McPartlin’s name for baby son and is ‘worried’

Loose Women congratulated Ant McPartlin on his baby news during Wednesday’s show.

On Tuesday, 14 May, Ant, 48, welcomed his first child with wife Anne-Marie, 46. The loved-up couple, who tied the knot in 2021, announced their joyful baby news on Instagram after deciding not to announce their pregnancy publicly.


Anne-Marie gave birth to a little baby boy. Sharing a sweet black-and-white photo of Ant holding their newborn son, the proud parents also announced their baby’s name in the caption of the adorable post as they wrote: “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.”

Talking about the happy news on Wednesday’s Loose Women, panellists Christine Lampard, Coleen Nolan, Linda Robson and Gloria Hunniford congratulated Ant before holding a segment called: “Are men just as broody as women?”

Christine, 45, said: “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.”

To which Gloria, 84, replied: “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 then made an observation as she added: “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” to which Christine pointed out: “Or it might just be wholly appropriate, it might just be perfect!”
