Former Strictly dancer Natalie Lowe posted the cutest photo of her son to Instagram on Wednesday afternoon – and she revealed that he's already taking after one of her co-stars! The star shared a snap of her six-month-old baby, Jack, in his Jumperoo, waving his arms and legs as he beamed with delight.

The doting mum captioned the image: "Oh my, somebody is full of beans today... The boy just can’t get enough of this #jumperoo I think he might take after his #goddaddy @ianjwaite My #baby #loves to #dance! #baby #babyboy #happybaby #happymummy #happymumhappybaby #dancerinthemaking."

Natalie's followers were quick to comment on how lovely the photo was, writing: "He’s adorable," "Aww wee cutie, bless him," and: "He is absolutely gorgeous!" While his energy levels and enthusiasm might be reminiscent of his godfather Ian Waite, who Natalie performed with on the BBC show, the glamorous dancer's fans thought that he resembled someone a little closer to home.

Opening up about their happiness, Natalie said: "My time now is to be a healthy mum and a great parent to Jack. Creating a human being for nine months is an incredible thing. You have to be kind to yourself, and not expect your body to go, snap, straight back to what it was before." Her husband added: "I didn't believe I could ever think Natalie was any more amazing but seeing her with Jack and how she is as a mum adds a whole new depth of love."
