The tiny tot looked cute beyond belief in her knitted garment emblazoned with Christmas puddings, santas, penguins, snowmen and red-nosed reindeer.

She could be seen standing upright in her jumper and jeans with her face turned away from the camera.

Whilst the youngster’s identity was largely hidden, Minnie, who came into the world back in January this year, sported bright red locks just like her famous mum, Stacey.

Doting dad Kevin was quick to highlight their uncanny resemblance in his caption, writing: "'Is @sjdooley a natural ginger?'" followed by a laughing face emoji and an orange love heart.

The professional dancer's friends and followers flooded the comments section with heartfelt messages in awe of Minnie's grown-up appearance and flaming tresses.

Since welcoming their bundle of joy, Stacey and Kevin have shared glimpses inside their parenting journey.

And during a recent interview with HELLO!, Stacey spoke about how her priorities have significantly shifted since becoming a mother.

"It's hard not to slip into clichés when I'm asked this but honestly becoming a mum has changed me entirely. Every stage is a surprise! The emotions are completely overwhelming," she told us.

"We've just completely fallen in love with her. "I do feel a little bit guilty sometimes when I'm on the road. Like I miss them as they're obviously at home, but I do get a night's sleep."

Lovebirds Stacey and Kevin first crossed paths on hit BBC show Strictly when they were partnered on the show in 2018. The couple later embarked on a romantic relationship and have been going from strength to strength ever since.
