Rachel is expecting her second child in the autumn

Rachel and Pasha are excitedly counting down the months until their new arrival. The couple are already parents to 18-month-old daughter, Maven. She met her future husband when they were partnered up on Strictly in 2013, and announced her pregnancy with Maven in May 2019.

One month later, the couple decided to elope and tied the knot in a secret Las Vegas ceremony, before welcoming their baby girl in December 2019.

The TV star announced her second pregnancy in April - at the time, she posted a picture of herself standing next to the iconic Countdown board which read out the word, "fittriley", an anagram for "fertility".

"A special teatime teaser," she wrote. "And your clue is... Riley had this to thank for the reason her clothes no longer fit her... " She added: "And it'll only get worse till Autumn! Happy, happy days for our little family @pashakovalev and future big sister Mave."
