With just a few weeks to go until the birth of her first child, Kristina Rihanoff is showing no signs of slowing down. The mum-to-be attended an awards ceremony for her charity Dot Com Children's Foundation, of which she is patron, over the weekend.

Kristina, 38, donned her formal attire for the evening, opting to wear a blue lace gown. She emphasised her growing bump with an empire waist and delicate sash tied around her curves.

The former Strictly Come Dancing star gave a speech during the night of the Inspiring Children's Awards, which was held to recognise the positive values and characteristics shown by exceptional children and the adults who support them.

The former Strictly Come Dancing star is expecting her first baby

Shortly after she found out she was pregnant, the dancing pro spoke to HELLO! about her impending motherhood. "It was a surprise but obviously I am delighted," she said. "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."
