Former Strictly star Kevin Clifton recently discussed his guilt at having to work away from his partner Stacey Dooley and their newborn daughter, Minnie.

But he was every inch the doting dad on Sunday, as he posted the sweetest photo of Stacey and their little girl to Instagram in honour of Mother's Day.

The candid shot showed the presenter sitting in a chair at a restaurant, with Minnie snuggled into her shoulder, as Stacey smiled and looked into the distance. Look back on her pregnancy journey in the video below...

Kevin wrote a gushing tribute to his partner in the caption, which read: "I've watched my girl @sjdooley become an absolute superwoman over the last couple of months (as if she wasn’t already).

"The most wonderful mum to our daughter Minnie. Love you baby. Happy 1st Mother’s Day [red heart emoji, mouse emoji]". Stacey sweetly responded in the comments section, boasting a crying emoji, love heart and mouse emoji.

The post comes less than two weeks after Kevin shared a never-before-seen snapshot of Stacey cradling baby Minnie.

The couple fell in love after being paired on Strictly in 2018

The documentary maker looked her usual stylish self in a comfortable ensemble featuring a pair of baggy jeans, a brown hoodie, sporty trainers and a bright tangerine-orange leather bag.

Baby Minnie, meanwhile, was dressed in a cosy oatmeal ensemble and a charcoal-grey onesie. Matching with her famous mother, the tiny tot could be seen wearing the most precious knitted orange booties.
