Ola Jordan and her husband James are set to celebrate their 14th wedding anniversary later this year, so it's no surprise that the couple are often badgered with questions of when they'll have their first child. Speaking exclusively to HELLO! Online, Ola admitted that she does sometimes feel the pressure, but she doesn't have plans to have a baby just yet.

"Of course I have pressure," said Ola. "I'm at a certain age now when people sort of look at you and think, right are you going to have a family or not? I'm 34, I'm going to be 35 at the end of this year, most of my friends have children and the ones who are my age that don't, they know they don't want children. Every time I see my mum or dad they ask about grandkids, so I suppose it makes you think."

"I'm not trying just yet, but I am looking forward to it," said Ola of parenthood

The former Strictly Come Dancing star, who quit the BBC show in 2015, added: "Being in the business that we are, it's really hard. I am looking forward to it, I'm not trying just yet, but I am looking forward to it. I'm not putting any pressure on myself, I don't want any pressure. I want to enjoy my time."

The Polish dancer, who published her autobiography Strictly Ola: Ola Jordan last year, has also envisioned what kind of mum she would be. "I think we're going to be strict parents," said Ola. "I like my house tidy, I think I'll be a strict mum. Nowadays with social media, looking at my nieces and nephews, it's hard. Yesterday we had dinner and my nephew, he's 14, he said he was angry with his mum and dad because they won't let him go to V Festival. I'm thinking, you're 14, you're not allowed to go! It must be hard having teenagers, so I told him, no your mum and dad are right, I wouldn't let you go. You try and put yourself in the parents' shoes and think, what would I do? I suppose it's good practice watching them, we can see how it is!"

Ola's autobiography Strictly Ola: Ola Jordan is available to buy online at Amazon or in stores at WHSmith.
