"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."
Both Rachel, 34, and Pasha, 40, became first-time parents in December last year. Announcing the news of Maven's birth, Rachel told fans: "2 weeks after we were expecting her this little one finally made an appearance. Miss Maven (one who understands) Aria (lioness) Riley Kovaleva arrived on Sunday morning weighing in at 7lbs 4."

She continued: "After keeping us waiting she came so fast we didn't get to hospital & was born in our bathroom with our amazing doula & wonderful St Mary’s midwives rushing over to be with us just in time. She's absolutely perfect & Pasha & I are in newborn bliss. Couldn't be more in love."
