The former Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer, 38, and the ex-England rugby player, 37, are proud parents to "a beautiful baby girl".

A statement said: "Ben and Kristina are delighted to confirm they are the parents of a beautiful baby girl.

"They would like to thank friends and family for all their kind wishes at this happy time."

The couple have yet to reveal the date of birth or any further details about their newborn.

Rihanoff and Cohen met during the 2013 series of Strictly Come Dancing when they were paired together on the popular BBC One show.

They became a couple the following year, after Cohen's split from his wife of 13 years Abby, with whom he has two daughters.

Russian-born Rihanoff revealed her pregnancy news during a stint in the Celebrity Big Brother house earlier this year.
