CBB 2016: ‘I’m Pregnant’ Says Kristina Rihanoff

And the award for biggest Celebrity Big Brother bombshell goes to… Kristina Rihanoff!

The Strictly dancer shocked her fellow housemates this evening by gathering them in the kitchen to tell them she’s pregnant with former rugby ace Ben Cohen’s baby.

The pair, who danced together on Strictly in 2013, have been dating since his split from wife Abby.

The emotional Russian told the rest of the group, “There was something that happened in my life before I came into the house, over Christmas, and I didn’t know how to deal with it.


“It’s obviously private news but I thought as we’re living as one family now, and everybody needs to support one another, it happened to be that I found out that my boyfriend and I are going to have a little one.”

Kristina was clearly overcome with tears of joy as she broke the news, and her fellow famous housemates showed her plenty of love with hugs and warm wishes.


The 38-year-old went on to reveal she’s “almost three months” along.

A spokesperson for Kristina confirmed her news, saying: “Kristina and Ben were surprised and delighted to find out that she was pregnant shortly before she entered the Big Brother house. Kristina is well and looking forward to being a mum.”

Congrats to Kristina and Ben!
