Former Strictly Come Dancing star Kevin Clifton has shared a heart-melting photo of his partner Stacey Dooley cuddling their baby girl, Minnie.

The proud dad posted the cute snap on his Instagram page late on Sunday evening, captioning it with three heart emojis and writing: "@sjdooley and Minnie".

In the beautiful picture, we see doting mum Stacey, 36, dressed in a denim jacket and jeans sitting on the sofa cradling sweet baby Minnie, who is dressed in a white long-sleeved top and light grey trousers. The mum and daughter look so similar with their matching red hair.

A second said: "Minnie is getting big lovely picture of you and Minnie," and a third told Kevin, "She is growing fast."

Back at the start of April, Stacey described Minnie as "the love of my life" during an appearance on The One Show, and she had nothing but good things to say about motherhood.

"Honestly, it's like I'm the first woman to ever have a child," she told hosts Emma Willis and Jermaine Jenas. "I'm that dramatic! I'm just completely obsessed. I'm head over heels, she's magic."

Asked how she was doing after the birth, a beaming Stacey replied: "I'm good as gold and she is just a delight. I'm biased, aren't I? But she is just the love of my life and I'm just made up with her."

The couple have enjoyed several beach days with their daughter, and in one recent post, Stacey told her fans about her buggy of choice.

In a stunning clip, Stacey treated her daughter to the high-life with plenty of stops on their adventure around the coast, and she made sure that her baby girl travelled in style.

"Me and Minnie are litch joined at the hip/boob …plus Kev's been all over the place on tour, so I'm delighted I've been able to stay on the move," she shared.

"And actually my Mum told me when she had me she bought us a Silver Cross buggy, (but it was green corduroy…lol) so we are following suit with the gorgeous @silvercrossuk Dune!"
