Cat's looking bloomin' lovely during stroll in LA with Paddy

CAT Deeley looked blooming beautiful when she stepped out with her Irish husband Patrick Kielty in sunny LA.

The TV presenter, who was wearing a red floral day dress, beamed for waiting photographers as she went to Beverly Hills' upscale Barneys New York for a shopping spree.

The power couple have settled in LA and have left their homes in Northern Ireland and England behind.

And Cat (38) and Patrick (43) were clearly happy to soak up the sunshine - a world away from dreary winter weather here and in the UK.

Loved-up Cat recently revealed that she keeps a photo of her other half from his teenager years in her bag.

A light-hearted approach to life is clearly a big part of their marriage and Cat proved she's just as witty as her other half on the afternoon talk show yesterday, when she revealed the contents of her purse for a 'What's in Your Bag' segment.

After a two decade-long friendship, Deeley says that the secret to a good marriage is that they both leave independent lives.

"We start getting on each other's nerves. He starts to hate me and I start to hate him," she joked.

"And he has to go away and I kind of miss him. We're normally apart for about 10 days. And then he comes back and we're lovely again. It works out perfectly. It's the perfect scenario. Lots of my friends are quite jealous about our relationship."

Deeley previously spoke about how her lengthy friendship with her now husband that allowed them to get to know each other before they were both ready.

"I know that I definitely wasn't ready for Patrick until now - nor he me. And we have had to get to a spot where we were and we have. And knowing each other for 20 years is brilliant. That feels like good foundations for the future," she said.


And she explained her decision to keep her wedding under wraps was partly due to the fact that she never dreamed of a big white wedding as a child.

"I was never the girl who knew what she would wear; it was never my greatest aspiration," she said.

"And then yeah, I ended up getting married. I got married in Rome, in the little Catholic church next to the Spanish steps. It's beautiful, and my husband is Irish.

"He's Irish and he's Catholic so we got married in a little Catholic church there, and then we went to the Getty Villa and we basically had a giant feast in the garden with lots of dancing and singing. Irish people know how to do it."
