About becoming a first-time father in January, Kevin gushed: "I'm obsessed, I'm absolutely obsessed. We've just completely fallen in love with her.

"I do feel a little bit guilty sometimes when I'm on the road. Like I miss them as they're obviously at home, but I do get a night's sleep."

Reflecting on meeting Stacey on Strictly back in 2018, Kevin added: "Who would have thought? If someone told us back then that in four or five years time, we'd be having a baby, [I wouldn't have believed it]."
