The couple tied the knot in November 2015 and share daughter Marnie Molly together.
Speaking about their musical themed wedding day, which included having their first dance to The Carpenters’ We’ve Only Just Begun with Hello! magazine, she gushed: “It wasn’t until we listened to it recently that we realised how significant the words were.
“And that even though we have been together for years, this is the beginning of a whole new level to our relationship.”
Kelvin admitted: “I was really worried that after the birth, Liz wouldn’t want any more kids – but a couple of days after Marnie was born, Liz told me she couldn’t wait to have another baby!”
