Rachel Riley welcomed her daughter into the world with her former Strictly star husband Pasha Kovalev.

The couple were delighted to tell their fans all about their baby news as they announced her sweet name in an Instagram post on Monday.

The Countdown star, 35, gave birth to little Noa on Bonfire Night on Friday which was 15 days after her due date.

“We have some news,” she wrote on Instagram in a message to her fans.

The happy family posed for photographs with their newborn.

They welcomed their second daughter into their little family on Friday.

She added: “Introducing Pasha’s newest dance partner - baby Noa was finally born, 15 days after her due date, late on Friday night to the sound of fireworks!

“She’s totally adorable and her big sister Maven has already tried welcoming her to the world by offering Oatly and pickles, we think that’s a good sign.

“Massive thanks to the wonderful home birth midwives team and my doula who looked after us all so well.

“Ps thanks too to my namesake @rachelrileyuk for the lovely rainbow baby clothes for our gorgeous rainbow baby. Our family feels complete now she’s here.”

Their oldest daughter Maven will turn two in December this year.

Recently, the TV personality spoke about growing their little family and she joked about getting all the sleep deprivation done in one job lot.

“We’ve bashed them out! Get the sleep deprivation over in one go is the plan,” she told MailOnline.

“I’m 35 and I’ve got friends that are struggling with fertility, and you just never know if you’re going to be able to get pregnant.

“We have been really lucky, touch wood, and we’re very excited. They’re great, we weren’t sure if we wanted them before and we’re just both in love, it’s lovely.”
