Ashley Banjo has confirmed his wife is pregnant with their first child.

The 30-year-old choreographer took to Instagram to share a snap of himself wearing some pink booties around his neck and his wife Francesca Banjo holding up a picture of her pregnancy scan ahead of the birth of their daughter.

He captioned the image: "I am so excited to finally share the news that we are having a baby!! Now the time has come to finally say this out loud I have no idea what to say! I don't know if words alone can explain how full of joy and happiness we both are. It has been a more difficult journey to this point than most people know but we are now here with one of the most precious gifts in the world... A little girl! I have so many strong and incredible women around me, I know she will have great examples to follow. Especially this woman right here - my wife and my rock. You are going to be the best mum in the world. (sic)"

The Diversity star "cannot wait" to meet his unborn child, and is hoping she will follow in his footsteps into the world of dance.

He wrote: "I'm so excited to see our little one grow up and if by any chance she wanted to be like her daddy and bust a few moves, I've already got the dancing shoes covered! Can't wait to meet you little sweetie #firstbaby #nextchapter #family (sic)"
