It's been a crazy couple of weeks for James Jordan, who welcomed a baby girl with his wife Ola Jordan in February. The former Strictly Come Dancing star gave fans a sweet update on his life as a new dad, and it certainly sounds like he is basking in the challenge of looking after a newborn. Admitting his life at the moment is a repetition of changing nappies, feeding his daughter and watching her sleep, James wrote on Twitter: "I wouldn't want it any other way! I'm in love." Fans of the couple advised James to "cherish" the baby years, with one responding: "Enjoy every moment… they grow so fast." While another added: "Cherish those repeats… it goes way too fast."

The former Strictly stars delighted fans in September when they announced in HELLO! that they were expecting a baby, with Ola admitting: "I still can't quite believe it." The Polish dancer fell pregnant on the first round of IVF in June, despite doctors only giving them a 50 per cent chance of being successful on their initial attempt. "I don't think it's properly sunk in," she added.

Proudly showing off their 12-week scan in our exclusive interview, Ola and James confirmed that their baby was due in March. "When we had the scan it was funny because the baby was dancing. I'm not sure if it was a cha-cha or a jive, but it was definitely dancing," laughed Ola. James, 41, added: "Finding out that we are pregnant is no doubt our biggest achievement ever. This is probably the most special and exciting thing that has ever happened to us."
