Vogue Williams has revealed her relief that her husband Spencer Matthews wasn’t allowed to propose live on stage at end of Lion King show in front of the crowd.
The presenter and mother-of-three, 36, told how staff weren’t happy for him to crash the end of the performance and so he had to do it backstage afterwards instead.
Dubliner Vogue met Spencer, 33, in 2017 and the pair got married in June 2018 with a secret ceremony in the Scottish highlands at his family’s 30,000-acre estate.

Speaking on the new Disney Podcast Journey to the Magic with Giovanni Fletcher Vogue said: ‘He proposed to me at the show. But it’s Spencer’s all-time favourite Disney film and it is the only thing he’s ever cried at, and he loves it.
‘So, it was kind of like he did his best proposal for himself. He could have taken me to Beauty and the Beast! He asked them, ‘can I go on stage and propose to her at the end’? That is my worst nightmare.
‘And they were like, ‘well, no, it’s a West End show and other people are watching it’.
‘In the end it happened backstage, and we met the cast and stuff, and it was really nice because it’s a really cool stage and you’ve got all the pride rock background and all that kind of stuff which was really cool.

‘He doesn’t really have any regrets, no he thinks it was great, it was quite nice. He had a great time.’
Vogue also admitted during the podcast chat that even though she loves travelling so much and especially with Spencer – who she calls her ‘ideal travel partner’ – since becoming parents the pair have only spent two nights away alone together.
She told how their mission this year is to get away together on their own for longer, to somewhere they’ve always wanted to go.
Vogue said: ‘We have we made a promise to ourselves. Because we’ve never gone away from our kids for more than two nights, and that would be our max.

‘Our new thing that we’re meant to be starting this year, is we’re going to try and get away for five days somewhere we’ve never been that we’ve really wanted to go, like Japan, India somewhere like that, and just spent five days on our own with no kids, once a year.
‘I don’t know if that’s possible but that’s what we’re going to do.’
Earlier this month Vogue and Spencer shared the first picture of their newborn son, who they have named Otto James.
In a spread with Hello! Magazine, the couple looked every inch the proud parents as they posed with their new addition as well as son Theodore, three, and daughter Gigi, 21 months.

In an accompanying interview the couple said they had ‘always loved’ the name Otto, with his middle name in honour of Spencer’s older brother James, 46.
Vogue said: ‘I heard somebody else’s child called Otto a couple of years ago and the name always stuck. I just loved it. I think Otto James together sounds really cool.’
They said: ‘Otto slotted in straight away. The kids love him and we are obsessed with him. Theodore and Gigi love playing with each other and I think that Otto’s going to be another little member of their gang. It’s really lovely to see.’
The pair spoke about Otto’s straightforward birth on April 18 and noted how he is the ‘spitting image’ of his dad Spencer.

Vogue said: ‘I mean, there’s none of me in there,’ Vogue laughs. If I had been shown this baby and had to choose which one was mine, I would never know because he’s just the spitting image of Spencer.’
In an Instagram post, she added: ‘Here he is! The newest member of our family… I can’t believe he only arrived 12 days ago, it feels like he’s been here forever.
‘He has brought so much happiness to our house… click the link in my bio for all the piccies, absolutely love them!❤️’
The couple announced the birth of their son on April 20.
The happy couple took to Instagram on Wednesday to share the wonderful news, sharing a photo of their older children meeting their new sibling.
Captioning her heartwarming snap, which sees Gigi and Theo cradling the tot, Vogue gushed: ‘We are so happy to announce that our beautiful boy arrived safely on Monday evening.
‘Bursting with love he is the perfect addition to our family ❤️.’
