Who is Holly Willoughby's husband?
Holly has been married to Dan Baldwin for 14 years, after tying the knot back in 2007.
She has, however, been tight-lipped about her relationship.
The couple reportedly met in 2004 on the set of Ministry of Meyhem - which Holly presented alongside Stephen Mulhern. Dan was a producer on the show, and the pair were friends before they started dating.
The couple were engaged in 2006, and married in the summer of 2007.
Holly and Dan have three children: Belle Baldwin, Chester William Baldwin, and Harry James Baldwin.
They are 9-years-old, six-years-old, and 11-years-old, respectively.
Holly Willoughby opens up about her marriage
Holly spoke candidly about her wedding on an episode of This Morning and revealed her one regret. "I wanted the massive dress and the towering heels," she said. "But I regretted it, and I ended up walking around barefoot for the whole day. It was fun, but the hem of my dress is ruined now."
However, the presenter did go on to wear her wedding dress again to celebrate the nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in 2018.
And in a rare statement on her relationship with Dan, Holly told The Sun, per Heart, in 2017: "I mean obviously I really love Dan. We really have a good laugh together, and I don't want to sound like a massive cliché, but we get on really well... I rely on him for a lot of stuff. I think we just work better as a pair."
And earlier this year, Holly discussed how the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has affected her marriage. "I also think that doing little nice things gives you a bit of leeway in other areas as well," she said on This Morning.
"We'll be off in different parts of the house, and I'll come back, and he's made a cup of tea or put the washing away, and I haven't asked him, and that really makes a difference. Then I turn a blind eye to other things. Little things make a big difference," Holly added.
