Kristina, 38, announced she was three months pregnant on Celebrity Big Brother in January this year, after finding out the joyous news over the Christmas period.

After being partnered together on Strictly, they took their romance public in July 2015 following Ben’s split from his wife Abby Cohen.

Ben and Abby’s divorce was finalised in March, and the pair share twins Harriette and Isabelle together.

However, HELLO! magazine announced their news, with the statement: "Ben and Kristina are delighted to confirm they are the parents of a beautiful baby girl.

"They would like to thank friends and family for all their kind wishes at this happy time."

The former Strictly dancer previously admitted her pregnancy wasn’t planned but “cried with joy” when she found out she was expecting 37-year-old Ben’s baby.

We can’t wait to see the little one and find out what adorable name she’s been given!

Congratulations once again to Kristina and Ben.
