Rachel Riley Has Just Announced That She's Pregnant

Everyone's favourite mathematical genius, Rachel Riley, has announced the happy news that she is expecting her first child with partner Pasha Kovalev.

Taking to Twitter, the presenter posted a photo of herself beaming and wearing a pretty dress while holding her tiny bump next to the famous countdown board.


The board reads: RTINYMATE, which can be read two ways, just as an anagram for maternity, or as a clever little spin that mixes up the word to read something else that could also make sense: R Tiny Mate, or Our Tiny Mate, referring to the little baby themselves.

In the caption for the photo, Rachel, 33, wrote: "Pash and I have a conundrum for have till December to work it out! We're over the moon excited" with a heart eyes emoji. She also posted the same thing to Instagram, receiving an influx of support from her hundreds of thousands of followers.

She'll be having the baby with partner Pasha Kovalev, 39, who she met when they were paired up on Strictly Come Dancing. She was formerly married to Jamie Gilbert for sixteen years.

On Twitter, Rachel's fans shared their delight.


Other parents stepped in to offer humorous advice "Congratulations both. The first 30 years are the worst". Greg Scott replied, referencing how long it's going to feel like Rachel is pregnant while she's trying to work alongside her pregnancy: "And so begins a twenty-month on-screen pregnancy! Congratulations, Rach and Pav! Xx"

The baby is due in December. Congratulations to the pair!
