The couple - who met when they were paired on Strictly in 2013 - revealed last month they had tied the knot in Las Vegas and have been enjoying a romantic trip around Europe.

Riley, 33, is pregnant with their first child and told her 403k Instagram followers that Kovalev, 39, has been digging a hole for her baby bump so she can lie comfortable on the beach every day.

As the couple enjoyed touring the modern art at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, Riley teased details of the baby’s gender.

She said: “Half-way bump and all brewing nicely! Mother’s intuition says it’s definitely a girl. Or a boy. Or a cockapoo...”

The couple - who had previously said they had no plans to tie the knot - were married in Vegas in June.
