Ant sets the record straight on THAT tattoo after fans accused him of snubbing family member


Ant McPartlin has broken his silence after revealing he’d welcomed his first child with his wife Anne-Marie, while address fans’ accusations he ‘snubbed’ his dog Hurley in his new tattoo.

Ant Writes Fans and Well-wishers

In his post, Ant also addressed fans’ concerns that he’d ‘snubbed’ Hurley in a new tattoo paying tribute to his family, after the dog’s name appeared to be absent from the design.

Ant wrote: ‘Hey all, I just wanted to say thank You so much for the kind messages of love and well wishes for our baby Wilder. He’s doing great. 

‘Glad you loved the tattoo as well. For all you dog lovers who asked why my beloved Hurley wasn’t on the family tree..he was!! He was just covered by our newborn. All my love, gratitude and heartfelt thanks A.’

Ant’s New Tattoo

Ant then shared a snap showing the full tattoo on his shoulder, with Hurley’s name visible on the tree design.

The tattoo could be seen on Ant’s shoulder in an Instagram post where Ant revealed he’d welcomed a son named Wilder Patrick with wife Anne-Marie. 

It comes just hours after reports surfaced that Lisa has vowed to fight for custody of their pet Labrador as the fallout of their messy break-up continues to spill after the birth of his first son. 

The Saturday Night Takeaway star split from Lisa in 2018 after 11 years of marriage and went on to marry his former personal assistant, Anne-Marie Corbett, in 2021.

This week Ant announced he and 46-year-old Anne-Marie had welcomed son Wilder Patrick McPartlin into the world – and the news is said to have shattered Lisa, who remains childless at 47 following her acrimonious divorce from the presenter.

Ant shared a Instagram snap sweetly cradling his baby boy, revealing he’d been born earlier that day on Tuesday, writing: ‘Born, 14/05/24 at 8.54am. Baby is beautiful, Mummy’s a legend, Sisters are over the moon. Dad’s a mess!’
