Ben Shephard has shared a rare photo of himself with his wife Annie as they celebrated Valentine’s Day.
Good Morning Britain host Ben, 46, keeps his wife Annie and their children Jack, 15, and Sam, 14, away from the spotlight. But, Ben took the opportunity to pay tribute to his wife on Valentine’s Day on Sunday 14 February. Ben shared a photo of himself and wife Annie holding onto a cocktail each as they smiled at the camera.
Ben, who was accused of avoiding Piers Morgan for years recently, wore a red T-shirt as he held up his tipple and stood in the foreground of the photo. Meanwhile Ben’s stunning wife Annie could be seen standing behind him as she wore a blue knitted jumper and held up her own drink. As he shared the photo on his Twitter page, Ben paid tribute to his wife as they celebrated their 25th Valentine’s Day together.
Ben wrote: “Happy Valentines! 25 years and I remembered this year!!

He also posted a six-minute video of himself making their cocktails for himself and Annie on his Instagram page.
Ben wrote alongside the clip: “The Marple Sparkle So the results are in! Thanks to @cocktail_credentials I think I remembered the process and Mrs S really loved it!! Thanks for all the naming suggestions we went with “Marple Sparkle” and we’ve had about 7 now and they just keep tasting better and better!”
Ben and Annie have been married since 2004. The couple were together for sometime before they tied the knot as they began dating in 1995.
The TV star rarely shares photos of his family on social media. The last time he shared a snap of wife Annie was as they took a walk in a park with their kids Jack and Sam on New Year.
The photo showed him and Annie snuggling up in front of the camera as their sons played in the background.
Ben gave a rare insight into his family life in the caption as he posted the photo on Instagram.
He wrote: “Happy New Year!! We’ve had an official New Years Eve cobweb blower-outer! all those drinks always seem like such a great idea!!!
“The Boys still can’t go five yards without kicking, punching, jumping on, tripping or pushing each other or generally brawling, but have to say there’s a feeling of optimism about the new year and what’s to come.
“I hope you’ve been able to smile as the year ends and you have a cracking 2021!”
