Alesha Dixon's two children: The baby names and their cutest moments

The Greatest Dancer star welcomed her second child in 2019


Not only is The Greatest Dancer judge, Alesha Dixon, a skilful dancer in her own right, with years of performing under her belt, the 41-year-old singer has been in a relationship with professional dancer Azuka Ononye since 2017 - how's that for a qualified dancing judge, hey? It’s believed that Alesha and Azuka wed in secret, with the star neither confirming nor denying whether they are married. The couple have known each other for more than 10 years.

Who are Alesha Dixon's children?

Alesha and Azuka are parents to two daughters - and they clearly have a penchant for names starting with an 'a'', as the family all have monikers beginning with the letter. Their little girls are called Azura and Anaya. The couple welcomed their first bundle of joy, Azura Sienna, in 2013 with their second daughter, Anaya Safiya, entering the world in August 2019.
