achel Riley has announced she is pregnant.
The "Countdown" star has announced that her and her boyfriend, former "Strictly Come Dancing" professional Pasha Kovalev will soon be having a baby.
Rachel announced the news on her Instagram and said: "Pash and I have a conundrum for you...you have till December to work it out! We're over the moon excited."
Last year, the clever clogs opened up about her relationship with the 39-year-old television star and revealed that while they were very content, they pair had not properly contemplated having kids or getting married.
She said: "I am in love now. I don't feel I have to get married. I don't think I need that pressure any more. I don't worry about getting married or whether he is taking a long time in the morning or whether he has done the dishes. That does not really bother me in the long term. I feel settled."
"I don't feel the need to do it again. If I'm with someone and I'm happy, that's enough." And touching on children briefly, she said: "I don't see myself with or without children - whatever will be, will be."
Meanwhile, the 33-year-old recently signed up to take part on new TV show "My Famous Babysitter".
According to The Sun newspaper's Bizarre TV column, the "Countdown" co-presenter will be tasked with looking after someone else's kids for the W channel reality series.
The upcoming four-part series will, each week, see a different celebrity instructed to look after another's family's children for seven days and all their trials, tribulations and successes will be documented.
This challenge will certainly bode well for the star and give the mother-to-be some good babysitting practice before her own little sprog comes along.
Rachel met Pasha when she was partnered with him on "Strictly Come Dancing" in 2013.
