The Strictly Come Dancing star, 40, and Chyna, 24, were inundated with congratulatory messages, but received a very special one from Neil's ex-wife and fellow Strictly star, Katya Jones.

Katya, who was married to Neil for six years, shared his exciting Instagram post on her Stories and sweetly wrote: "So happy for these two! @mr_jonesofficial, you deserve all the happiness."

Neil and Katya separated back in 2019, one year after her kiss with Strictly partner Seann Walsh came to light.

The couple addressed the controversy in an exclusive interview with HELLO! months before announcing the end of their marriage, revealing that despite everyone having an opinion on their relationship, they wanted to focus on them and "sort it out ourselves".

Katya's message will come to no surprise to Neil as the pair have remained friends since their split and are very supportive of each other. They also share custody of their pet dog, Crumble.

At the time of their separation announcement, the couple stated: "We wish one another every happiness and we will remain the best of friends. We are really looking forward to getting back to the ballroom and can't wait to keep on dancing."

Speaking to HELLO! about their happy news, Chyna said: "I can't wait to see Neil as a dad, I can see how happy he is and how good he is with his nieces and nephews."

"Chyna is going to make a great mum," added Neil. "Even now, she sits there and goes: 'Me and our baby know everything about each other."
