Kristina Rihanoff's bond with her little girl couldn't be stronger.

The former Strictly Come Dancing star has opened up about her daughter Mila, and revealed that she is more of a "Mummy's girl".

Replying to a reader's question on her HELLO! Online blog, Kristina wrote: "Oh I think I have to say she's a Mummy's girl! Just because she's spent the majority of the past three weeks with me.

"Oh I think I have to say she's a Mummy's girl!" Kristina revealed in her blog

"But you know she's very well-behaved with Daddy," Kristina, who has been holidaying in the US with her daughter, added. "I think she knows that when she's around me she can have a little cry and misbehave a bit more! I read somewhere that babies know that when they're with mums, they can misbehave because they know they're going to get that extra attention.

"But she's brilliant with everybody actually, she always gives everyone smiles, she's very sociable and very happy to be around other people. She's a happy baby so that's the main thing!"

Kristina also revealed that it was her best friend Alex who inspired her to name her daughter Milena – Mila for short. Alex has a three-year-old daughter, also called Milena, and when Kristina and her partner Ben Cohen heard the name, they couldn't think of anything else.

Kristina wrote: "Alex is from Ukraine, and when we were choosing baby names she said that she fell in love with that name too and she just didn't want to hear any other.

"I did think, is it going to be weird if my best friend's daughter has the same name as my daughter? But it actually isn't! Obviously we're still best friends, we've known each other for 15 years! But lol, yes, our daughters do have the same names!"
