‘I’m in a relationship with three women who all have very different opinions of me at various times,’ he David, adding that it ‘just makes you feel a little bit more like a man, to be honest. I just feel a little bit more like an adult.’

He went on to admit that becoming a family man has changed his views on fatherhood, making him feel ‘every cliché from every sitcom you’ve ever heard’.

Lily said: ‘We didn’t plan to announce it to anyone, it was meant to be a very private affair we were leaving Vegas and driving to Los Angeles and Nevada Clark County tweeted our marriage certificate.’  

She quipped: ‘So that saying, “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”, what happens in Vegas gets tweeted out by Vegas!’

Lily joked: ‘So it seemed to be the only place that was stupid enough to have ceremonies so… it happened!’

Making their nuptials a true classic Las Vegas affair, the lovebirds were married by an Elvis Presley impersonator.
