It's fine grammatically. If I were your husband I might feel somewhat disappointed though. How about "Darling, that was incredible! I loved it!"

Yes, but it's very stilted.

'That was lovely, darling; I enjoyed that'.

Do you often speak to your wife in English?

Nice one!

Just to clarify! This is from a literary text and not a real situation!

Anyway, thanks for everyone,
