Celebrity chef Gregg Wallace had the Loose Women panel in hysterics when he joked about the 21-year age difference between him and his wife Anne-Marie.
Wallace appeared on the ITV lunch time show on Monday (9 November) and couldn’t help poke fun at the age gap between the couple when he was asked about being a parent to 1-year-old son Sid.
She asked the Masterchef star: “Gregg, we know you have a lovely little baby, what is it like being a dad now?”
Wallace responded: “You haven’t met Mrs Wallace but I was really pleased when she had a baby because it’s someone at home more her own age to talk to.”
He went on: “I’m overjoyed, honestly. We’ve got Libby who’s 23 who lives here, and she and her brother Tom who’s 26 were both at the hospital when their baby brother was born – isn’t that lovely.”
Wallace, who has been married four times, has spoken regularly about the age difference between him and his wife, and revealed being married to a younger person and being an older parent inspired him to be healthier.
Wallace told Closer magazine earlier this year: “Having my baby boy made me want to be fit and strong. I can now go for long walks, which I wouldn’t have been able to do before.
“Anne being younger than me was even more of an inspiration to be fit – you can have an old husband but she didn’t have to have a fat, old husband.”
He added: “There is no way I’m going through the week without a pint of beer. But I’m careful most of the time and here I am, as fit as a butcher’s dog.”
