Rachel Riley has shared an adorable family photo – and it might just be her sweetest yet.

Taking to Instagram on Monday, the Countdown presenter, 37, shared a joyous snapshot of her husband Pasha Kovalev playing hide and seek with their youngest daughter, Noa.

WATCH: Rachel Riley shares sweet video of daughters - and fans can't believe how much they've grown!

The father-daughter duo looked so sweet in the snapshots as they hid behind two bollards in a busy London street. Whilst Noa was largely concealed by the object, Pasha was clearly visible thanks to his vibrant red trainers.

Despite this, Pasha, 43, fully embraced the challenge and appeared to relish the sweet moment with his youngest daughter.

Captioning the image, Rachel penned: "Training underway for the London 2023 World Hide and Seek Championships @pashakovalev."

The presenter's fans and friends flooded the comments section with heartfelt messages. "Pasha blends in (apart from the shoes)," quipped one, while another remarked: "So cute," followed by a couple of red heart emojis.

A third gushed: "That cheered me up," and a fourth sweetly added: "I see Pasha but where's Noa?"

Aside from little Noa, Pasha and Rachel are also doting parents to three-year-old daughter Maven.

Lovebirds Rachel and Pasha, who first crossed paths on Strictly back in 2013, welcomed Maven in 2019 and Noa in 2021.

The sibling duo appear to be following in their parents' footsteps. Chatting exclusively to HELLO! In August this year, Rachel revealed that Maven, in particular, has a combined love of maths and dance.

"My three-year-old is literally asking for maths videos for kids on YouTube," she said. "There's one that's a dance with numbers up to 100. And she's looking for numbers on the side of the road, like the speed signs or the road signs and she's shouting the numbers out, you know, getting excited about it and counting. Even the baby's going '1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11'.

Rachel went on to say: "They're both really active. My three-year-old's riding a bike and she [was] on a balance bike and a scooter this week. It's just going before my eyes. But it's fun watching their little personalities and letting them try stuff, but just keeping them out of the road!"

Elsewhere in the interview, Rachel opened up about the possibility of welcoming a third child with her husband, Pasha.

When asked about whether a new family addition might one day be on the cards, Rachel told us: "We're happy where we are. If I had all the help in the world and all the staff in the world to keep having babies… But I think we're happy with two.

"We're just starting to get out of the woods and they can play together now. They can be left together for a little bit, it's starting to get a little bit easier. So I think we're on that note."
