Countdown's Rachel Riley admits romance with husband Pasha Kovalev is 'on hold' | The Sun

COUNTDOWN star Rachel Riley has opened up on how her marriage to Strictly star Pasha Kovalev has changed since having children.

The 37 year old star admitted that she and Pasha have essentially put 'a hold' on their romance after "putting a pin" in going out as just the two of them.

Rachel admitted the relationship dynamics had changed between the pair after the November 2021 arrival of their second daughter Noa.

In an interview with the Mirror, Rachel said: "All the romances and dates…we just kind of put a pin in it."

She added: "We’re both quite patient and we know that once Noa is off the boob, we’ll get there again.”

Rachel and Pasha first met when she signed up to be a celebrity contestant on BBC One ballroom dance show Strictly Come Dancing where they were paired together.
