The Strictly Come Dancer proposed to his wife in front of her loved ones back in 2014 and a year later the happy couple tied the knot. In the past Ore has confessed he knew Portia was 'The One' when he first met her. He told Hello! magazine: "From the first two months, we talked about wanting children.

"The way we are with each other hasn't dipped or changed. I know it will always be fine when Portia is here."

He's even told The Mirror he was so emotional on his wedding day that he basically cried all day, he explained: "I cried from 11 in the morning until 2am that night.

"There's a picture of me wailing, my best men there laughing and Portia absolutely cracking up next to me – I am the only one crying."

Congrats to the happy couple, we can't wait to see the little one.
