Strictly Come Dancing’s Kristina Rihanoff announced the exciting news that she is three months pregnant in the Celebrity Big Brother house on Thursday night.
Now it has been reported that the talented dancer is hoping that her bundle of joy is a little girl, with her boyfriend Ben Cohen also excited to become a father again.
A source revealed: “Kristina is overjoyed at the idea of becoming a mother. She has wanted a baby for years and is over-joyed. She’d especially love a little girl.”
Ben is said to be incredibly supportive of Kristina despite being “intially shocked” as he tries to finalise his divorce from ex-wife, Abby.
The insider added to The Mirror: “Ben is being as supportive as possible, but he wasn’t expecting to be a dad again quite so soon.
"He was initially shocked, even though he does love Kristina. Now he’s absorbed the news he’s really excited.
"But he is still finalising his divorce to Abby and the financial side of their settlement. Right now, Kristina is the bread-winner, they live separately and they have a lot of things to iron-out.
"But they found out about the baby so close to her entering the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house they haven’t had a chance to discuss the future in depth.”
It is thought that Kristina discovered that she was pregnant after signing on the dotted line for CBB, with the excited star telling her stunned housemates the happy news just three days into her stint in the house.
