Gregg Wallace, 54, became a father-of-three when his wife Anna,who is 24 year his junior, gave birth to their first child together. In an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, the Inside the Factory presenter opened up about their marriage as new parents. “Nothing has changed at all since Sid [their son] came along,” he said. “Work-wise, I’m still a workaholic. We decided that my role was provider and that’s what I should keep in doing.”
He went on to spill all on the “agreement” he and his wife made as a couple prior to Sid’s birth.
“Before the baby came along, Anna also agreed to have one holiday each year, just us two,” he said.
On the subject of becoming a father again, the MasterChef judge gushed: “I never thought it would happen at my age.
“I’m 55 this year,” he added. “It’s an absolute delight but then Sid is very lucky, he’s got his mama, his nonna and his big sister there.
“He lives in a world of constant cuddles.”
In a frank interview with OK! Magazine following Sid’s birth, Gregg Wallace said he missed “physically loving” his wife Anna.
“I miss us not physically loving each other at the moment as I really, really fancy Anna,” he told the publication.
“In fact, Anna’s been the one to try and rush that side of things and you might expect it to be the other way around,” he continued.
“It’s all getting back to normal,” she chimed in.
“It won’t be long before you can chase me around the kitchen.”
The MasterChef favourite went on to say having Sid had “cemented” their romance, explaining: “There’s a proper nucleus of real love and care here at home.”
The couple fell pregnant after two years of trying, later saying that’d been about to start IVF treatment before they conceived naturally.
Elsewhere, Gregg told Express.co.uk about filming the new series of Inside the Factory, which he fronts with Cherry Healey, 38.
He said fans could expect to see him “getting incredibly excited about high tech mechanical systems employed to make every day mundane items”, before going on to reveal the most surprising thing he learned this time around.
“[It’s] how much goes into a simple mattress,” he declared.
“We’ve all bounced on them, we’ve all got one, I don’t think any of us has ever dissected one. It’s nuts, what goes in a mattress.”
Inside the Factory, continues Tuesday at 8pm on BBC Two.
