Lisa Armstrong was spotted out in public for the first time on Sunday since ex-husband Ant McPartlin revealed he and his second wife Anne-Marie are expecting their first baby together. 

The Strictly makeup artist, 47, who was married to Ant, 48, for 11 years before getting divorced in 2018 without any children, was spotted in West London picking up some groceries. 

Lisa donned a casual get-up for the outing consisting of a shell rain jacket and a pair of black jeans. 

She also further accessorised the look with a burgundy designer scarf and donned a pair of comfy Nike trainers. 

She styled her short hair back and appeared to go makeup-free as she climbed into a black van with her groceries in tow.

It comes after Lisa shared a cryptic late-night post on Sunday just hours after her ex-husband Ant revealed his exciting baby news. 

The makeup artist took to Instagram in the early hours of Sunday morning to repost a snap that pop icon Britney Spears posted to her own Instagram. 

The cryptic late-night post that Lisa shared was just of a pink background and a small heart in the middle. 

However, it appears that Lisa shared the post in solidarity as Britney has struggled with her love life recently too after her estranged husband Sam Asghari, has nearly finalized their divorce, six months after he filed to end their 14-month marriage. 

 It comes after the 48-year-old has reportedly confirmed to pals that he is set to become a first-time father with wife Anne-Marie, 46, after his long-time desire for a family.  

The TV host is said to be ‘beyond delighted’ by the news as he told his Britain’s Got Talent co-stars this week and revealed Anne-Marie was due in June. 

Taking to Instagram for the first time just hours after the news was announced, Lisa paid tribute to the beloved dog she still shares with Ant, Hurley. 

The adorable sketch of a dog’s paws in its owner’s hands read: ‘Thank you for being my dog, someone to do life with, and above all, thank you for being my best friend.’

Lisa reposted the drawing alongside some praying hand emojis as she gushed over the chocolate Labrador she still shares custody of with Ant. 

During their divorce battle, Ant is said to have told lawyers: ‘She can have anything she wants – except the dog’, as the former couple reportedly agreed to take it in turns to look after Hurley. 

Ant previously revealed in a candid 2013 interview that he and Lisa experienced a ‘tough’ battle trying to conceive.

Ant and Lisa were married in 2006 and tried for a baby for several years, before divorcing in 2018 without any children. 

He told Radio Times in 2013: ‘There’s a rumour that I’m holding off having kids till [co-host Declan Donnelly] finds himself Mrs Right’. 

‘I love that idea, but I’m afraid it’s not true. Lisa and I would love to have kids. We’re trying. It’s tougher than you think when you get a bit older.’

It was previously rumoured back in December that Anne-Marie could be expecting their first child after she appeared to be several months pregnant while returning from a trip to Dubai. 

According to The Sun Ant had already confided the wonderful news in close friend and onscreen partner Declan Donnelly following weeks of speculation.  

Anne-Marie, who has two children from her previous marriage, is believed to have already had her five-month scan which allowed the couple to confidently let the cat out of the bag. 

A source told the publication: ‘This is the news everyone wanted. Ant and Anne- Marie are beyond delighted’. 

‘It’s no secret that Ant has always wanted children, but that it may never happen for him was something he had, sadly, come to terms with’. 

They went on to describe Ant as a ‘wonderful doting father’ to Anne-Marie’s children and said the couple did everything they could to keep the news a secret for as long as possible.

Adding: ‘To be having a child two years short of his 50th birthday, with the love of his life, is the stuff of dreams for Ant’. 

MailOnline has contacted Ant’s reps for comment. 

There have been rumours swirling for some months that the couple might be expecting – particularly after Anne-Marie decided against flying to Australia to be at her husband’s side while he hosted ITV’s I’m A Celebrity.

The pair got together after meeting while she worked for Ant and his former wife, Lisa.

Friends previously told MailOnline’s Katie Hind that Lisa would be ‘very upset’ if her former partner’s happy news was confirmed – because she too was desperate to become a mother

It is believed that she and Ant tried for a baby for several years and she was devastated when their marriage ended in 2018, still childless. 

It comes after the 48-year-old has reportedly confirmed to pals that he is set to become a first-time father with wife Anne-Marie , 46, after his long-time desire for a family
