Rachel Riley shows off growing baby bump after announcing she's pregnant with second baby

PREGNANT Rachel Riley showed off her growing baby bump – saying she'd been holding her tummy in on Countdown.

The maths whizz, who already has a daughter called Maven with Strictly star Pasha Kovalev, announced she was expecting again with a special teaser on Instagram yesterday.

After announcing her joyful news, the Countdown star took to Twitter yesterday to share two glowing pictures of her and her bump filming the Channel 4 quiz.

One photo saw her looking glamorous in a red dress while in the other picture she was effortlessly chic in blue watercolour print dress.

Captioning the shots, she penned: "Nice being able to breathe again at work, no more stomach holding in, phew!"

Rachel's social media post comes a day after she confirmed she was was expecting another baby.

The 35-year-old wrote beside a picture of her holding her tummy in a floral dress: "A special teatime teaser! 🤗

"And your clue is… Riley had this to thank for the reason her clothes no longer fit her…

"And it’ll only get worse till Autumn! 😉🌈👶🏻


Happy, happy days for our little family @pashakovalev and future big sister Mave."

Her celeb pals were over the moon, with Sophie Ellis Bextor writing: "Congratulations!! That is happy news indeed. Lots of love from us to you all xxx ❤️."

While her fans bombarded her with congratulatory messages.

Rachel's first child Maven was born in 2019, the same year she wed dancer Pasha in a secret ceremony in Las Vegas.

The pair were partnered together on the 11th series of Strictly in 2013 and have been dating since 2014.

During the first lockdown, the pair were joined at home by Pasha's mum, and relished the extra time they were able to spend together as a family.
