"It's different and it's another level, even though we've been together for so many years."

On who her one-year-old daughter is taking after, Ola added: "I can see bits of James in Ella, and they're so cute together. She's a daddy's girl. Even when she goes to bed and we have dinner, we go through our phones watching each other's videos we captured of her earlier in the day, which is quite funny."

Meanwhile, the 38-year-old found herself becoming a mother without the guidance of her own parents when she welcomed baby Ella. With her own mum and dad living in Poland, the professional dancer confessed it's coming up to two years since they were last together – and how her tiny tot is still yet to meet them in person.

"It's really hard. In September it will be two years since I've seen my mum and dad," she explained. "Ella was only three weeks old when we went into lockdown and I joked to them at the time that when they meet her she'll be running up to them. And she is literally now running around, so it looks like I wasn't joking after all."

Admitting she is not ready to meet her parents until they are both vaccinated, Ola added: "I don't really know when we're going to be able to see them again. My mum hasn't had her vaccine yet and my dad has only had his first, so I don't want to go there and give them something I shouldn't."

Instead, Ola's parents have been forced to communicate with their granddaughter through FaceTime. "It's very sad, because when you have a baby it's your parents you want around you," continued the mum-of-one. "I always imagined that's what would happen, but they haven't met my baby yet."
