Anton du Beke secretly married his long term partner Hannah Summers following the birth of their twins in March
Anton du Beke is a married man.
The 'Strictly Come Dancing' star and his long term partner Hannah Summers secretly tied the knot following the arrival of their twins in March.
A spokesperson for the star confirmed to the Mail Online that the happy couple - who started dating in 2007 - are now man and wife after rumours of an official union were rife when Hannah appeared at the Chelsea Flower Show on Monday (22.05.17) with a glitzy piece of jewellery on her ring finger.
Anton hinted the pair were set to tie the knot sometime in 2017 when he revealed last year that the pair would "maybe" say their I dos in the next 12 months.
Speaking in 2016, he said: "She's just perfect. I love her above all things. Will we marry? Maybe next year. We're very happy.
Whilst he also added: "Performing was the 'woman' in my life, if you like - but then Hannah came along. She's just perfect. She's very beautiful, clever, but also really kind."
Anton announced the babies' arrival with a post on Instagram, where he shared a photo of two pairs of shoes, one with pink ribbons and another with blue ribbons.
He wrote alongside it: "Oh my! The little dancing feet have arrived. Mum and twins are perfect and dad is ridiculously excited! (sic)"
The pair announced the news they were expecting in November last year after reportedly undergoing IVF treatment.
He said at the time: "Hannah and I are delighted to announce that we are expecting twins in the spring. We are over the moon!"
Whilst a source added: "Anton and Hannah are very happy together, and they decided some time ago that they were both ready to have children. Hannah didn't fall pregnant quite as quickly as they would have liked and it was a source of worry for them for a while. Eventually they decided they wanted to try IVF treatment and they are delighted it has worked. Hannah is now more than three months pregnant and she seems to be coping very well."
