Braving the rain, the celebrity mathematician showed off her burgeoning baby bump in a chic white mini-dress. She happily flashed a smile to passing photographers whilst shielding herself from the weather with a large blue umbrella. The 33-year-old teamed her stylish look with beige sandals and a navy cardigan.

They shared their happy news on Instagram, with Rachel writing: "Introducing the new Mr and Mrs Kovalev. We both said yes!"
