It's just one month until Ola and James Jordan mark their daughter Ella's first birthday! And ahead of the milestone, the former Strictly Come Dancing stars have shared an adorable video of their baby girl walking around their home - with some help, of course.

"Good girl, good girl, want to go to mama?" proud dad James could be heard saying, while Ola remarked: "Hi my clever baby, Ella. Come to mama… yay." She'll no doubt take after her parents when it comes to dancing in no time!

Since becoming parents, both Ola, 38, and James, 42, have been completely devoted to their baby girl, their first child together. They have been isolating at their home during the coronavirus pandemic, and while they have loved the extra family time it has offered them, they also admitted it has been a very unusual time to have a baby.

"I can't remember the life we had without her to be honest," Ola recently told HELLO!. "She has taken over now! It is really weird as I feel like I've been home ever since I had her."

James added: "Ella hasn't met another baby yet…" to which, Ola continued: "I would like her to meet someone the same age, to see what she does. She is missing out on interacting with other babies as well. I'm sad for her that she isn't getting that interaction that she would normally."

The couple will soon celebrate Ella's first birthday

The professional dancers, who married in 2003, had a difficult three-year journey to become parents, which saw them turn to IVF. They welcomed Ella via Caesarean section at 9.20am on 27 February.

Asked whether they would like another baby in the future, James replied: "We are so lucky. I think we would both love to have another child but because of everything we are going through at the moment, I just don't know if it's the right time. But we don't want to miss the boat either."

"It is really difficult," added Ola. My mum and dad haven't even met Ella yet. And James' dad is not well. I would like for Ella to have a sibling."
