While little Ella is quite content in the video, she is very distracted by her dad's face mask! At one point she pulls the covering down away from James's mouth before pushing her fingers in his mouth as he tries to talk to the camera.

The former Strictly stars welcomed Ella via Caesarean section at 9.20am on 27 February. Sharing their happy news with HELLO! at the time, new mum Ola gushed: "As soon as they put her on my chest, she stopped crying and opened her eyes and looked at me. Our bond was there from the first second."

The couple welcomed their baby girl in February

Opening up about the exact moment they first laid eyes on Ella, James recalled: "It's horrible to watch someone you love go through surgery and you feel so helpless. Every time a machine made a noise I was asking what was going on.

"I couldn't relax. I'm a control freak so it's hard not to be able to do anything to help. Then came the Lion King moment when they held her up above the screen for us to see her. We burst into tears." He added: "I could stare at her all day. I didn't want to let her go."
