Rachel and Pasha relive their Strictly days

Rachel and Pasha first started dating at the end of 2013 after meeting on Strictly Come Dancing and went on to tie the knot in Las Vegas in June 2019.

Speaking on Loose Women recently, the TV star revealed they are relishing life as a family of four - although both Rachel and Pasha are making an extra effort to make sure their eldest daughter Maven is adjusting to the change in their dynamic since baby Noa arrived.

"She's loving it," she said of Maven. "There is a little bit of jealousy going on, but we're trying to balance it and we're trying to make her feel like she's very special." Rachel then joked: "You can see the odd cuddle that turns into a headlock!"

On watching Pasha become a father, she added: "Pasha is an amazing dad, he does everything except breastfeeding!"
