The English singer first revealed about her pregnancy to Daily Mail Online in November 2009. Then, she was pregnant for the first time, but she had previously stated about her desire to have children with Lee. She had said,  

'I think it's important to have children with the right person - and Lee's the first guy I have ever wanted them with. I look at him and know he'd make a great father. Our kids will have so much curly hair!

Later, on 29 January 2009, the pair got engaged, and two months later, in April 2009, they got married in Seychelles in a quiet ceremony, only inviting their close friends and family. 

The English dancer welcomed a baby daughter, Betsy Mead, with husband, Lee Mead on 1st May 2010.

The couple seemed perfectly happy, but something occurred in their four years of short-lived marriage, and they eventually split in July 2013.

Later, the couple's busy schedules led divorce was finalized on 8 December 2013 at the Central Family Court in London. However, they remained good friends for their daughter’s sake. In March 2016, the friendly exes even went to Dubai for a vacation with their 5-year-old daughter. 

The duo's divorce was so amicable that both Outen and her ex-husband didn't need to file for custody agreements.

Talking about her friendly relationship with her ex-husband, Outen, the English presenter revealed how they handled the custody agreements in July 2017's edition of Loose Women. She said, 

"We do get on well. We sat down, and we talked about it [custody arrangements]. And there was no animosity. When you have a child with someone it's about your kids. We didn’t decide to do anything, it was just an organic thing."

Lee also mentioned in April 2016 that he would be spending Easter holidays with ex-wife Outen and daughter Betsy. 

From 1998 to 2001, Denise dated Jay Kay, the lead singer of the British funk band, Jamiroquai.

Denise started dating boyfriend, Eddie Boxshall, a commodities trader from Essex, following her split with her ex-husband, Lee Mead.

One of the mutual friends set up the pair's first date, but the City trader didn't know about the actress celeb status when he met her. 

Talking about their first date with Dailymail on May 2017, Eddie stated,

"All I'd been told was that I would be meeting a woman called Denise, I had no idea it was Denise Van Outen. When I saw that it was her, it came as a surprise - a lovely one. To be honest, it was an advantage not knowing too much about her career because it meant there was even more for me to find out about her. The chemistry, for me, was definitely there and I couldn't wait to see her again."

Denise also said on Loose Women that she clicked with Eddie in the first 10 minutes of their meeting, 

"Constantly talking on a phone and messaging each other is a waste of time, you might as well go and meet that person and you'll know within the first half hour if it will work or not. With Eddie I knew within ten minutes - we just clicked."

She was close to turning 40 and didn't want to try online dating, so she agreed to a setup date organized by the friend. The date turned out to be a productive one, as she got the man she was looking for the whole time. 

Oil broker Eddie Booxshall, a father of two from his previous relationship, enjoys more than two-decades of experience in the oil trading industry.
