Stacey and Kevin, who found love on Strictly, welcomed their bundle of joy into the world on 10 January 2023. Earlier this year, the couple marked their daughter's milestone first birthday with the sweetest celebration complete with a giant pink cake and metallic balloons.

While the couple appear to be on cloud nine, lovebirds Kevin and Stacey haven't shied away from dishing on the realities of parenting. Opening up to The Sun, Stacey candidly shared: "Do you know what’s hilarious? You're so tired and sometimes you really feel like you're in the trenches, it's a haze and you're just trying to figure it all out.

"I think I would love to have more babies. But I said to Kev the other day, 'Don't you want to do this again?'. And he went, 'Are you nuts? You're over-tired!'... I've had one and am completely failing."

Stacey and Kevin's home life

Stacey and Kevin are raising their family in a beautiful family home near Liverpool. The couple upped sticks to live closer to Stacey's mother after they fell in love with the Liverpool property after just one viewing.

Professional dancer Kevin told the Liverpool ECHO: "Stacey loves looking at houses on the internet. Looking at interiors and stuff is her favourite thing to do.

"She just happened to have seen something she liked and thought, 'Oh it's not too far away from my mum'. We went and had a look and the second she walked in was like, 'I love it and I can really see us living here'. It all happened really quickly and we love it."
