Countdown’s Rachel Riley has announced the arrival of her second child with husband Pasha Kovalev.

The pair, who met when they were partnered together on Strictly Come Dancing in 2013, are already parents to daughter Maven who turns two this December.

Rachel, 35, announced the arrival of her second child, a daughter called Noa, on Instagram today.

Sharing an adorable pic of her and Pasha with their newborn daugter, Rachel wrote: “Introducing Pasha’s newest dance partner – baby Noa was finally born, 15 days after her due date, late on Friday night to the sound of fireworks!

“She’s totally adorable and her big sister Maven has already tried welcoming her to the world by offering Oatly and pickles, we think that’s a good sign.”

Rachel continued: “Massive thanks to the wonderful home birth midwives team and my doula who looked after us all so well.

“Ps thanks too to my namesake @rachelrileyuk for the lovely rainbow baby clothes for our gorgeous rainbow baby. Our family feels complete now she’s here.”

Among the first to congratulate the pair was Good Morning Britain presenter Charlotte Hawkins, who commented: “Ah wonderful news – big congratulations!!”

Rachel announced the pregnancy back in April on social media with a special ‘teatime teaser’ which showed a series of jumbled letters on the iconic Countdown board.

When rearranged correctly the word spelled out ‘fertility’.

Rachel captioned her post: “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.”

Shortly after she also posted another photo showing off her growing bump whilst on the set of Countdown which she captioned: “Nice being able to breathe again at work! No more stomach holding in, phew!”

The newborn is Rachel and Pasha’s second child as they already have a daughter called Maven Aria who was born in December 2019.

The pair tied the knot in Las Vegas in June 2019 while Rachel was pregnant after having met whilst being coupled up with each other during Rachel’s stint on Strictly six years before.

The pair were eliminated in week six of the show after losing out in the dance off to Abbey Clancy and Aljaž Škorjanec, who then went on to win the series.

At the time Rachel was married to her previous husband Jamie Gilbert who she met while they were studying at Oxford University.

They announced their separation in November 2013 which was then followed by Rachel and Pasha publicly revealing they were dating the following December.

Rachel is best known for her role in Countdown since 2009.

She replaced original co-host Carol Vorderman, whose career began on the show back in 1982.

Rachel admitted she was not interested in a career in television but her mum encouraged her to apply for the role.

After making a name for herself on the Channel 4 series, Rachel has also been involved with the comedy spin off version of the show 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown since it began in 2012.
