​Inside Emma And Matt Willis' Adorable Relationship

Let's be honest, we all love Emma and Matt Willis' relationship and they are pretty much 'couple goals'.

The pair married in 2008 and since then both Emma and Matt have shared romantic social media posts about their relationship and are pretty open in interviews.

Emma who is now 42 met Matt, now 35, in 2004 while the presenter was working at MTV and while Matt was part of Busted.

Speaking on Loose Women back in 2017, Emma admitted that it was actually her who did the chasing, maybe that's why she was so shy during her interview with the band on MTV.

She said: "I asked him [out]. We met at MTV actually, years and years ago... I chased him for a little bit."


Emma also asked singer Simon Webbe to help set them up, adding: "I called up Simon Webbe from Blue who was with him on the telly. They were on Ant And Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway together and I said can you pass my number onto him... [Matt] didn't call me."

However, not all hope was lost as Matt finally picked up the phone and asked Emma out- if only they knew then that they would become such a power couple.

Two years later, Matt asked Emma's dad for her hand in marriage and she said yes at the Ponte Vecchio in Florence.


The couple married in 2008 at Rushton Hall, Northamptonshire however, last year Matt revealed that he has burnt most of the pictures from the big day as he looked like a 'massive wreck head'.

The Busted popstar spent time in rehab during his battle against drug and alcohol addiction twice before he tied the knot with Emma.

He finally managed to get sober during his third time in rehab, after they had got married. Unfortunately for Matt, the images from his wedding reminded him too much of his addictions.


Thankfully, on the couples' 10th wedding anniversary they renewed their vows in front of their friends and family.

Emma even wore her original wedding dress from ten years ago and of course she looked amazing.


On their anniversary, Matt shared a gushing post about his wife. He wrote: Matt wrote: "I actually managed to hang on to her for 10 years... I'm still not sure how? I know I'm punching before you all comment that!

"I am the luckiest guy in the world. I get to spend the rest of my life with this kind beautiful powerful woman. She is the most amazing wife and mother and I could not be more proud to be her husband."

Emma and Matt have three children together who they prefer to keep out of the spotlight, their first child Isabelle, nine, was born in June 2009.

Son Ace was born in 2011 meaning he is now six years old and two-year-old daughter Trixie.

Although their relationship might sound perfect Emma revealed last year that they annoy each other like every other couple.

In an interview with The Sun, the 41-year-old said: "Because I still love [Matt]! I still fancy him. He's still fun, he doesn't bore me. I suppose I just picked really well. We both picked well."

She continued: "You know what? Maybe there's not a secret. You've just got to work at it and spend time together and appreciate each other.

"And yeah, you'll p*ss each other off from time to time. Nobody's perfect. But if you don't expect perfection, you'll be fine."

However, Matt sounds pretty perfect to us as despite being on a European tour with his Busted band mates for Emma's 41st Birthday he flew home to surprise his wife and take her for a special birthday dinner.

Emma admitted on Instagram that she cried happy tears when she saw him and we'll be honest we cried happy tears when we saw her Instagram post.

We hope the power couple continue to share gushing Instagram posts and proclaim their love for each other online for many more years to come.

We could even be treated to a new baby Willis as Emma recently revealed she was feeling 'broody'.

Speaking about her latest TV series Emma Willis: Delivering Babies, Emma told Fabulous:"It really made me broody at the beginning - that newborn baby smell, the little noises...

"...but then you do a night shift, and you see a woman in the middle of the night with it all hanging out, everything sore, everything tired, babies screaming..."

Or maybe not.
