Ore Oduba cried his eyes out when he found out his wife was pregnant.

The former "Strictly Come Dancing" winner announced he and his spouse Portia were expecting their first child last month, but he has admitted he struggled to keep it a secret from the rest of the world because he was so excited about becoming a father.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, he said: "We'd just come back from Spain and Portia was feeling a bit weird. I nipped home for half an hour between meetings. As soon as I opened the door Portia dived in to our bedroom and came out to show me the stick test which said, "pregnant". I fell about crying.

"I sobbed and said, "How am I supposed to get on with the rest of my day? There'll be a river of emotion the moment our baby is born."

And the 31-year-old sports journalist can't go over how "beautiful" his wife, whom he married in 2015, looks with a burgeoning baby bump, but has admitted he feels sorry for her because the unborn tot is moving around all day and is making Portia tired.

He explained: "Portia is over the half-way mark now so keeps pointing to her body and saying, "this bit's grown - this bit's bigger". She's very self deprecating.

"When I look at her I can't put in to words how much more beautiful she looks every day. I thought it was impossible to be any more stunning. She changes that record every day. She's tired because this one's quite a mover."
