Kevin Clifton was one proud dad on Friday when he revealed his one-year-old daughter Minnie is walking. 

The former Strictly Come Dancing professional, 41, shares the infant with his TV star girlfriend, Stacey Dooley, 37. Kevin documented his pride with an adorable snap of his little girl on Instagram, mid-walk.

"My little girl walking now," he captioned the image, alongside a red love heart emoji. Minnie couldn't have looked sweeter in the photograph. She donned a knitted wooly hat complete with bear ears and faced away from the camera to keep her face out of the shot. 

She also rocked a chunky knitted cream cardigan and chequered trousers. On her back, Minnie wore a unicorn-shaped rucksack that was white and featured a matching white unicorn horn and bright pink mane. The bag was also adorned with pink, purple, white and blue stars as well as a rainbow in the same colours.

The comments section was filled with touching messages including from Strictly star Dianne Buswell and former contestant Amanda Abbington who gushed over the milestone moment.

The couple welcomed Minnie in January last year, and since her arrival both Kevin and Stacey have proudly been documenting their little one's milestone moments. Stacey has also received countless praise from fans for being open about the realities of motherhood.

Kevin has also been exceptionally open about life with his baby girl and revealed on Loose Women on Thursday that he was "terrified" to look after his little girl on his own, whilst mum Stacey was filming Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over.

He said on the show: "I was down the road in a trailer all the time. Looking after Minnie reading the same book over and over again. I was terrified because I was like 'you're going to be there for three days what am I going to do?'.

Stacey also revealed her parenting worries last year when she confessed to The Sun she felt like she was "failing" as a mother. 

Talking about whether she would have more children, she said: "Do you know what’s hilarious? You’re so tired and sometimes you really feel like you’re in the trenches, it’s a haze and you’re just trying to figure it all out.

"I think I would love to have more babies. But I said to Kev the other day, 'Don't you want to do this again?'. And he went, 'Are you nuts? You're over-tired!'... I've had one and am completely failing."
