Vincent Simone And Girlfriend Susan Duddy Celebrate The Christening Of Their Son Luca William


Vincent Simone may not have won the Strictly Come Dancing trophy this year but he has another reason for beaming from ear to ear — his “little angel” son Luca William, 5 months. The 31-year-old and girlfriend Susan Duddy — who have just celebrated getting back together — held the christening at the 18th century Grosvenor Chapel in London’s Mayfair. With Vincent being Italian, all the stops were pulled out for the day as christenings are “a big deal for us.”

Guests included Vincent’s former Strictly partners Rachel Stevens, Louisa Lytton and Jo Wood. Judge Len Goodman, dancers Flavia Cacace, Erin Boag, Darren Bennett and Lilia Kopylova were also in attendance. Vincent’s family flew all the way from Italy for the occasion, while Susan’s family travelled from Northern Ireland — her Grandad even boarded a plane for the first time to make sure he didn’t miss out on the big day.

VSL1Whenever Strictly Come Dancing star Vincent Simone has time off from practising with his celebrity partner for this series, former Eastenders actress Natalie Cassidy, he flies straight to Northern Ireland to spend time with his newborn son, Luca William, and the baby’s mother Susan Duddy.

“Every minute of every day off, I want to be there, no matter what.”

The professional dancer is clearly besotted with his first child. “Vincent can just look at Luca and be in tears,” reveals Susan. “There’s a very sensitive side to him. When he’s here, he constantly has Luca in his arms.”

“I’ve achived a lot in my life — amazing shows, performances and championships,” adds Vincent, “but having Luca tops all that.”
