This week Ben Cohen swapped rugby for football to play in the 'legends' match between England and Germany – and pregnant girlfriend Kristina Rihanoff was right there to support him. 

Former rugby union star Ben, 37, managed to score both goals during the match at Upton Park, but that wasn't enough to stop Germany winning 7:2. Despite this, Ben and 38-year-old Kristina looked more than happy as they celebrated after the game with a couple of unlikely friends.

Kristina has left Strictly - where she and Ben met - but insists it was on good terms

She said: "It was a surprise but obviously I am delighted. My mother was with me over Christmas and when we found out she put her arms around me and she cried with joy. It is her lifelong dream for me to have a child and it was lovely to see her so happy."


Kristina also made the decision to quit BBC's Strictly but insisted she left on good terms with everybody. "It is the most exciting thing I've ever done," she said. "We are a tight bunch. It's not the glamour or the costumes I will miss, but those guys."I think I am on a new path. Learning about myself, how to relax and how to enjoy a more simple and balanced life. I can't say I'm not nervous. But I'm very excited about the future."
