Speaking in an exclusive interview with HELLO! a few weeks after Ella's long-awaited birth, the couple shared their feelings on becoming parents following IVF treatment.

Ola said: "It’s been amazing and overwhelming at the same time. We’ve wanted this for so long. We had a lovely life, but this is making us feel so much happier than anything else we have done. Nothing in our careers measures up to this. It feels perfect."

James added: "This is the best moment of our lives, without a shadow of a doubt. Ola has given me the most precious gift. It’s totally changed the way I see the world."

Baby Ella looks so peaceful asleep on her playmat – and it was well-deserved as she'd just learnt how to roll over!

Proud mum Ola shared several clips on her Instagram stories, showing the incredible moment as it happened. "Where's my baby going? Oh… there she is! Oh my god!" she said as she rolled over. "Yay, that's my baby! Yes, she did it! Look at her!" she told James.

The professional dancer then shared a picture of her daughter sleeping on the floor. "All this moving around made her so tired," she wrote.
