Harry ‘pushed into the background’ as Meghan Markle ‘takes over’ Nigeria tour

Ant McPartlin welcomed his first child on Tuesday, admitting he was "a mess" as he shared a sweet snap of himself cradling the newborn.

However, eagle-eyed fans may have spotted in the picture an apparent "snub" of his beloved dog Hurley, whom he shares custody with ex-wife Lisa Armstrong.


Hurley was the cause of much dispute between McPartlin, 48 and his makeup artist ex Armstrong, 47.

When the pair decided to split after 11 years of marriage in 2018, they were embroiled in a bitter custody battle over the Labrador.

The pair now share duties to care for him, but it appears the presenter has neglected to include Hurley in a tattoo displaying names of his family, including dogs he shares with his current wife Anne-Marie Corbett, 46.

The tattoo on his arm is clearly visible in the recent Instagram post, and features tributes to his wife, his two step-children, and their dogs, Milo and Bumble.



During the divorce battle, it's believed, according to the Mail, McPartlin told his lawyers: "She Armstrong can have anything she wants – except the dog."

It was reported earlier this year that Armstrong expressed her wish for Hurley to stay with her full-time because McPartlin has two dogs with wife Corbett.

When McPartlin shared the news he was a father-to-be, it was reported he was elated by the news as he didn't think children would be in his future.

Speaking at the time, a source told The Sun: "This is the news everyone wanted. Ant and Anne-Marie are beyond delighted.

A post shared by Ant & Dec (@antanddec)

"It's no secret that Ant has always wanted children, but that it may never happen for him was something he had, sadly, come to terms with.

"When they found out last year, they were absolutely delighted, but obviously kept the news quiet for as long as possible.

"To be having a child two years short of his 50th birthday, with the love of his life, is the stuff of dreams for Ant.

"He's already a wonderful, doting father to Anne-Marie's kids, and together they're going to be brilliant parents to this latest addition to the family."

LATEST DEVELOPMENTS:



Following McPartlin's baby news on Tuesday, his ex Armstrong shared a cryptic update to her Instagram followers.

Taking to her Instagram stories, she posted a snap which read: "Be proud of how you have been handling these past few months.

"The silent battles you've fought, the moments you've had to humble yourself, the times you've wiped your own tears. Celebrate your strength."
