One fan joked: "Is there something you're not telling us?" while another added: "Are you pregnant again?? Lovely."

Rachel and her husband Pasha Kovalev became first-time parents in December in 2019, and there's no denying how much Pasha, 41, and Rachel, 35, have enjoyed every moment with their baby girl.

During a recent chat with HELLO!, the celebrity mathematician was quizzed on baby number two, to which, she replied: "Yeah, we definitely want another little person to have Maven be friends with. When that happens, that would be lovely."

Of becoming parents, Rachel said: "It's been gorgeous. My friends always said when you love someone and you see them with a child… he is just amazing with her.

"He's better with her than with me, I've got the secret weapon of boobs and he has to actually learn proper parenting. She loves him, he loves her. Even when looking at a picture of her, his face just lights up - it's gorgeous."
