Rachel and Pasha welcomed Maven in December 2019

"I don't find it scary at all," he said when asked how he was feeling about his little girl turning one soon. "I find it absolutely fantastic, I never knew what to expect.

"Being in this situation being a father, it's the best thing that could ever possibly happen to me. I am loving it."

On whether his daughter has already started dancing, Pasha added: "We're dancing a little bit already, she probably will dance before she can walk."

Since becoming parents for the first time in December, there's no denying how much Pasha and Rachel have been relishing every moment with their baby girl.
