Smitten ex-Strictly dancer Kristina Rihanoff is apparently desperate to take Ben Cohen down the aisle – but sources say the 38-year-old rugby ace isn’t quite so keen.
And you’d think with that decidedly dodgy sex tape of Ben (ahem) pleasuring himself surfacing the other month, he’d be keen to notch up a few brownie points, wouldn’t you?
“Kristina would love to call Ben her husband but she can’t force his hand right now,” an insider told New! Magazine.
“She knows he’s still incredibly bitter about the break-up of his marriage to Abby and the way the public perceive him because of it so she’s wary of pushing it.
“In public, she loves telling the world how they’ll be married once she’s in better shape but behind closed doors, it’s a very different matter”.
The 39-year-old ex-rugby player split with his wife Abby Blayney to begin his relationship with Kristina after they appeared together on Strictly in 2013.
Cohen has always denied any accusations that he had a fling with Russian dancer Kristina while they were still married, and insists they waited until the following year.
It’s not the first time Ben has sounded less than warm about the prospect of getting hitched, either.
Asked by Hello magazine in November whether he and Kristina would be getting wed, he replied: “I imagine we will get married at some point.”
A spokesperson for Kristina has denied the claims, saying that she “is enjoying motherhood and not keen to get married at this moment in time.”
