Declan Donnelly made the honest remark about his sex life with wife Ali Astall to his pal Stephen Mulhern.
Dec’s Britain’s Got Talent co-host Stephen Mulhern, 41, let slip the information in a new interview with The Sun.
Britain’s Got More Talent host Stephen revealed how he quizzed popular Geordie Dec following the birth of his and Ali’s daughter Isla in September last year.
Stephen told the publication: “I was asking him questions: ‘Have you changed the nappy yet? How long before you get back to a bit of nookie?’
“Do you know what he said to that? ‘As soon as possible – you’ve got to get back on the game straight away!'”
Stephen also revealed that in honour of 43 year old Dec becoming a first-time father, his BGT co-hosts made him dress up a baby on the set of the show.
He said: “Dec’s just had a baby so I thought why don’t I dress up as a baby?
“The outfit looked great and I went in with one of these virtual babies which didn’t stop crying.
“Then we got a man-sized nappy, and made him put it on Ant to show us his nappy-changing skills. So Dec put a nappy on Ant and, I’ve got to be honest, he was actually really good at it.”
Dec is a doting dad to his first child with 41 year old wife Ali, who he married in 2015.
TV presenter Dec has revealed that he has found balancing his busy TV career with being a first-time dad difficult, but he is loving every moment.
He told the Evening Standard: “No one tells you how hard being a parent is! We could have had a warning!
“It is literally the hardest thing I’ve ever done but I’m loving it.”
