Piers Morgan Tonight star Piers Morgan, 46, and his wife Celia Walden have welcomed a baby girl into the world. Piers and Celia got married in June last year – named their new daughter Elise although no further details of the birth are yet known. This is a first child for Celia, Piers has three sons from his 20-year marriage to Marion Shalloe, whom he divorced in 2008.
Piers and Celia met on a magazine photo shoot and while Piers initially claimed the journalist was “way out” of his league, he later proposed to the 34-year-old beauty on a romantic trip to Paris by presenting her with a book by her most-loved writer John Updike, entitled ‘Marry Me’.
Piers and Celia then tied the knot in a quiet ceremony in Oxfordshire, where he neglected to even invite fellow ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge Simon Cowell to the nuptials. He said: “I couldn’t trust him to turn up on time.”
Simon later retorted: “I hate to admit it but I’m absolutely thrilled for the two of them. Having met Celia, I have no idea how he managed to pull this one off.”
