Sarah-Jane and Ben met three years ago at a party thrown by their mutual friend Autumn Phillips, the former wife of Princess Anne’s son Peter.
The Sky New star previously revealed that she was happily single as she headed toward her milestone 40th birthday.
‘I hadn’t had a long-term relationship for four or five years and I didn’t know where my life would go – whether I’d have a husband or children at all,’ she told The Telegraph in 2021.

‘And I was very comfortable with that and didn’t feel I was missing out. But people assume you’re putting on a brave face.’
The couple moved out of London together to the countryside and quickly decided to try for a child together.
They welcomed their daughter Rae in June 2020, a little sister for Ben’s son Teddy, eight.

Sarah-Jane admitted that the pandemic helped the couple to decide to cement what they wanted out of life, as she explained:
‘Life slowed down for everybody and that weaned me off my old life, which was working all the time and going out all the time.
‘I met Ben and then everything just stopped because of coronavirus and we started talking about the life we really wanted.

‘But if you’d told me three years ago, I’d be doing all this, I would have laughed.’
The broadcaster – who started her career at Sky as a runner for Sky Sports – previously opened up on how she knew Ben was the right man to have children with.
She explained: ‘I have been very open in the past about not wanting to have children on my own; I only wanted to have them with someone but I had not met that person.
‘It wasn’t until I met Ben that I thought he was completely the person I want to have children with. It was an absolute no-brainer.’
Sarah-Jane became an anchor for the breakfast programme Sky Sunrise in 2016, replacing Eamonn Holmes, who had been in the role for 11 years – and she now presents The Sarah-Jane Mee Show.
