The Only Way Is Essex star, and member of one of the UK’s most famous families Jess Wright, recently announced she is expecting her first child with husband William Lee-Kemp, but what do we know about him? And how long have the pair been dating?
In November 2019, Jess Wright opened up on her relationship with the business owner and explained why she’d kept their romance away from the public eye for months.
The reality star told OK! Online in November: “In the past, I'd been quite pressured to come out with someone and he wasn't like that, which I was very grateful for.“
She added: “I wanted us to have our own time first before I introduced him to this world because it's very intense.
“When he has to do red carpet events with me and stuff – he's not really into all that so I didn't want to force it upon him in the beginning.”

Opening up to OK! online about about the pair’s first appearance together on the Lion King premiere red carpet, Jess revealed her man isn't used to life in the limlight.
She said: “He’s like: ‘What do you mean we have pictures?’ I was like: ‘Just follow me!”
Who is William Lee-Kemp and what does he do for a living?
William Lee-Kemp is an audio visual company business owner, and is understood to be good friends with Jess’ famous younger brother Mark Wright.
Jess first posted a photo on Instagram in May 2019, revealing that she was in a relationship but the photo just displayed William's back – so he was unidentifiable at this point.
Jess then shared a second snap in the same month, showing her sharing a kiss with her mystery man who was then reported to be William Lee-Kemp.
A source told The Sun at the time: “William shares a flat with Mark’s best friend and they’re all close mates. He definitely has the approval of Jess’ family.

“His friends describe him as ‘Mr Normal’ – he’s not at all interested in fame or being in the public eye but that hasn’t put him off being with Jess either.”
What do Jess Wright's family think of William Lee-Kemp?
Former reality star Jess previously opened up to OK! Online about her relationship with William, discussing their Christmas plans with her family – and hinted that he had the seal of approval from the Wrights.
“I normally stay at my mum’s house but I’m gonna stay at home this year with him just the night bit, Christmas Eve, so that will be lovely and we’ll wake up with our dogs.”
And aside from being friends with Mark, William also has the green light from Jess’ mum Carol Wright.
When asked what she thought of her William in 2019 , Carol told OK!: “He's lovely, ticks every box that I could wish for for Jessica.
“He’s lovely, he's calm, he's nice, he's got a great personality. He's got no temper about him he's a really calm guy so I like him.”
When did William propose?
Jess announced her engagement to William in March 2020 during a skiing holiday in the French Alps after he popped the question after dating to reality star for more than a year.
The TV beauty shared a stunning photo of her holding her then-fiancé's face while smiling close to him as they stood in front of a mountainous background.
She wrote in the caption: “A million times YES! [heart emoji] [ring emoji] I love you so much x” [sic]
Where did Jess and William they tie the knot?
The couple had originally planned to marry in June 2021, but due to coronavirus restrictions, the couple had to change the date to September.
Jess and William eventually tied the knot on September 9 2021 at the Basílica de Sant Francesc in Palma, with Jess looking gorgeous in a Milla Nova gown with long sleeves and a tulle skirt.
The bride, who tied the knot surrounding by her family Mark Wright and his wife Michelle Keegan, along with Josh Wright and his other-half Hollie, changed into a second dress for the evening celebrations, wearing an extravagant Vivienne Westwood gown featuring a bow on the back and a long skirt.
Documenting their nuptials, Jess has filmed her own ITVBe reality show, The Wedding, with William which aired on Tuesday 2 November.
The 90-minute special chronicled the former TOWIE star and William's build-up to their dream star-studded wedding in Majorca.
