Matt Willis Age/Nationality
He was born on 8 May 1983 and is therefore currently 36 years old as of 2019. Being born in Kingston upon Thames, England, he holds the English and British nationality and is of White ethnicity.
Matt Willis Spouse/Children
He only has one wife, Emma Willis who they got married to on 5 July 2008 in Rushton Hall, Northamptonshire. The two are famously very private about their kids hence not much is known about their 3 little ones.
We only know that they welcomed their first child, named Isabelle in June 2009. Again, they welcomed their second child, Ace, a baby boy in November 2011. They also chose the middle name Billy, which is admittedly more traditional. Emma Willis was spotted pushing Ace around in a Bugaboo buggy in February 2012 with a Maxi-Cosi car seat attachment.
During the early stages of her 3rd pregnancy, in January 2016, Emma revealed she had no plans to take any official maternity leave. She welcomed her third baby in May 2016, a little girl named Trixie Grace.
5 weeks after welcoming baby Trixie in June 2016, Emma returned to the small screen as the host of Big Brother… but we were left unsure about some of the comments on her post-baby body. Emma spoke candidly in October 2016 about her post-baby body, saying her babies were worth the ’sagging, lumps and bumps.’
Matt Willis Family
He was born in Tooting in London and has an older brother, Stephen. Unfortunately, their parents split up when he was only 3 years old. His mother later remarried and had his half-sister, Doreen, who is an ambassador for a charity called Whizz-Kidz.
Matt has had three different last names legally while growing up. Even though his original last name was Willis, after his father, this was changed to Woods after his parents split and later changed to Sargent after his mother married her current husband.

Matt Willis Trivia
He played a drug dealer character on episodes of Casualty and The Bill and was an extra on EastEnders. Matt had a brief stint for three weeks in London’s Priory Rehab Hospital for alcoholism in April 2005 when he was only 21 years old.
When he was 23 years old, he was admitted again in July 2006 for a few days to the Priory Rehab Hospital for drug abuse, because he was hooked on cannabis from when he was 13 years old. He began to have problems from the drug-taking including physiological and memory problems.
In June 2008 when he was 25 years old, he entered the Providence project rehab center in Bournemouth after a marriage ultimatum, as Willis continued to take drugs and drink heavily. It was reported that a night out with close friend Amy Winehouse pushed Willis too far.
Willis took the full five-week course in drugs and alcohol. Matt Willis claimed to have stopped smoking in November 2007, which he had done from the age of 11 but has since been photographed smoking.
On 28 February 2010, Willis was injured in a skiing accident.
