Anna Ryder Richardson Personal life
Richardson lives in St. Florence Pembrokeshire, Wales, having recently relocated from Glasgow with her restaurateur husband Colin MacDougall and two children, Bibi-Belle (born 2002) and Dixie-Dot (born 2003). In January 2001, she gave birth prematurely to a son, nicknamed 'Bean', who only lived for 74 minutes. Her father was a Malaysian student but she was adopted by Colin and Jill Ryder Richardson.
She has recently stated she wants to adopt a Chinese baby and that people should do this rather than get pets or buy Ferraris. She is sometimes mistakenly linked with a lawsuit involving Arnold Schwarzenegger. The presenter involved was in fact Anna Richardson of movie review show Big Screen. She has purchased The Manor Park Wildlife Zoo near Tenby. She didn't get her ears pierced until early in 2005, when she had them pierced especially for her wedding. When she heard that Anna had pierced her ears, fellow Changing Rooms designer Linda Barker gave her a pair of large silver hoop earrings, and this style has now become her favourite.
