While the former dancer keeps many of the details of her daughter's life private, she has previously spoken about the little girl's personality.

"We have so much fun together and I try so hard sometimes lol. But still, first-time mum, learning by doing #gratitudeattitude daily exercise!"

Motsi's daughter recently shared in her mum's excitement for her sister, pro dancer Oti Mabuse.

The Strictly judge posted a video on Instagram which showed her holding up Oti's first children's book, Dance with Oti: The Bird Jive.

Motsi was clearly impressed with her sister's efforts, as she started by saying: "Oti, we're so proud of you, look at you girl."

The mum-of-one then asked her daughter if she wanted to say anything and the little girl said: "Yeah!" "What do you want to say?" Motsi asked. "I love you," the youngster sweetly added.
