Countdown star Rachel appeared in high spirits as she flashed a huge smile for the camera. For the family affair, she looked radiant in a purple striped jumper and a pair of ripped jeans. The star completed her look with a playful half-up half-down hairdo, a bright pink lip and a sweep of sculpting bronzer.

Pasha, 43, meanwhile, looked every inch the doting father as he sweetly posed for a selfie with his three-year-old daughter, Maven. Opting for a casual outfit, the professional Strictly dancer donned a form-fitting navy jumper and a pair of dark-wash jeans.

The happy couple were pictured holding their adorable daughters who appeared to relish the unique experience. Their eldest, Maven, looked super sweet in a bubblegum pink cardigan, whilst Noa, two, melted hearts in a powder blue cardigan and a pair of floral applique sandals. For an added dose of cuteness, the tiny tot had her hair styled in precious bunches.

"I wouldn't normally ask for selfies with famouses but seeing as it was for the kids… [winky face emoji]," Rachel penned in her caption.

She continued: "Thanks for having us #GabbysDollhouse @dreamworksjr @smythstoys - fab morning, the kids loved visiting Gabby's bus! I haven't been back to Lakeside for a million years either, it's on today and tomorrow 11-5 outside #SmythsToys for anyone with little fans of the show."

In December 2019, the couple welcomed their first child at home. Rachel gave birth to daughter Maven whilst standing up in the bathroom. She made the surprising revelation during an interview with MailOnline. "The midwives got here 20 minutes before she was born. I was standing up — there's a video of the midwife catching her," she revealed.

"I wasn't scared, I was more like, 'This is happening. Get it out!'"

And in 2021, the couple went on to welcome little Noa. They shared the happy news on Instagram, writing: "We have some news…! Introducing Pasha's newest dance partner - baby Noa was finally born, 15 days after her due date, late on Friday night to the sound of fireworks!
