Comedian Patrick Kielty and his wife TV presenter Cat Deeley are expecting their first baby together.

Cat revealed the couple are looking forward to the pitter-patter of tiny feet on her official Twitter account, writing: "Exciting news....

Paddy and I are so happy to be expecting our first child in the Spring..... Lucky us."

Fans and friends alike have been congratulating the couple on the social media network since.

The pair, who wed in 2012 in a surprise Italian ceremony just months after they began dating, recently revealed how they first became a couple.

The funnyman from Dundrum, Co Down told the Mail on Sunday's Event Magazine: "Cat was in LA and I was in Northern Ireland, so I texted her to wish her a happy birthday.

"When she said she was having a birthday lunch at the Beverly Hills Hotel, I said I'd be there. She told me to go to sleep as I was drunk.

"That was 2am. I got up at 5am, went to Belfast airport for 6am, got the 7.15am flight to Heathrow, landed at 8.30am, took off again at 9.40am and arrived in LA at 1.15pm.

"I was at the Beverly Hills Hotel by 2.15pm. When I walked in, Cat looked at me and said: 'Oh, you're good!'"

Kielty said there was always 'a spark' between them, adding: "Unless someone was stupid enough to get on a plane, nothing would have happened."
