Rachel Riley beams as she and Pasha Kovalev begin countdown to first baby

Rachel Riley couldn’t keep the smile off her face as she was pictured on Tuesday in Manchester.

The 33-year-old is expecting her first child with husband Pasha Kovalev, whom she met on Strictly Come Dancing when the pair were partnered together, and as she heads into the final months of her pregnancy, the Countdown star was simply glowing.

Wearing a simple stripey T-shirt top with jeans and an oversized pink coat – and a fun metallic silver backpack – the TV mathematician looked gleeful as she left the studio where she was thought to be filming the Christmas special of the Channel 4 show.

Rachel and Pasha announced they were expecting their first child in May with a fun Instagram post that saw Rachel cradling her baby bump in front of a famous Countdown conundrum.

Cupping her stomach in front of the infamous board, she grinned away in front of letters that spell out ‘maternity’ when rearranged.

‘Pash and I have a conundrum for you… you have til December to work it out!’ she tweeted.

‘We’re over the moon excited!’

Weeks later the two took off to Las Vegas for a last-minute wedding.

Confirming their marriage on Instagram, Rachel sported a red and white printed mini dress with a bouquet of red and white roses in hand, while Pasha looked proud and dapper in a black blazer with cream jeans and a white shirt covered in what appears to be small red love hearts.

Rachel captioned the Instagram post: ‘Introducing the new Mr and Mrs Kovalev. We both said yes!’
