Rachel shares two daughters, Maven and five-month-old Noa, with her husband Pasha Kovalev. They started dating at the end of 2013 after meeting on Strictly Come Dancing and went on to tie the knot in Las Vegas in June 2019.

Speaking on Loose Women last month, the TV star revealed they are relishing life as a family of four - although both Rachel and Pasha are making an extra effort to make sure their eldest daughter Maven is adjusting to the change in their dynamic.

"She's loving it," she said of Maven. "There is a little bit of jealousy going on, but we're trying to balance it and we're trying to make her feel like she's very special."

"Celebrations are a bit different these days with kids ruling the roost, drinking tequila shots is temporarily out and falling asleep on the sofa has swapped in, but thankfully the Shark in the Park birthday cake was something everyone could enjoy (thanks @lilyanddilly!)"

She added: "Lovely way to round off our first family trip up to Countdown filming with the new member of family. Love these humans, happy birthday handsome!"
