Stacey Dooley has announced she is expecting her first baby with her boyfriend and former Strictly Come Dancing partner – Kevin Clifton.
The pair first met back in 2018, when the documentary maker took part in ITV's hit show Strictly Come Dancing and was paired with her dance partner, Kevin, 39.
Months after the show had finished, Stacey confirmed the couple's romance.
Dooley's previous boyfriend, Sam Tucknott, had accused Stacey of ditching their five year relationship for her dance partner.
In a post-split interview, Stacey said: "I didn't want to get into a slanging match. Because there was a time when I really loved Sam. I adored his family. And I still really want what's best for him. I just… feel like I’ve grown a lot."
"I'm never ever going to say anything that would hurt him," She added.
"It's actually one of the things I really love about Kevin. He and Karen [Hauer, Kevin's ex-wife and fellow Strictly pro dancer] have always been really amicable. Karen and I have always been really amicable. We toured the country together for the show. We're all grown-ups."
Together, Stacey and Dooley won the dancing competition. It was the first time Kevin had won the show in the four years of performing. The dancing duo further bonded on a nationwide tour.
Stacey and Kevin have always been very private when it comes to their life together.
In 2019, Stacey told the Guardian : "Kev and I have agreed not to go into too much detail about our private lives because you can't really indulge that and then ask for privacy."
Later on, as the documentary maker opened up a bit more about the relationship, Stacey spoke about how her feelings blossomed on BBC Radio 5.
"Then you win together and you have Christmas and then January, you think, ‘Oh where is he? Oh, I liked hanging out with him’. So yeah, it was much later down the line for us. We were pals for a long time.”
Although the pair have publicly confirmed they do not wish to get married, Kevin has already been married twice before – once with fellow Strictly dancer Karen Hauer.
Now though, four years later, the happy couple have announced that they are expecting their first baby. Stacey announced the news to her Instagram followers and said: "Gaaaaaaang…. We are having a baby! So bloody delighted. Kev, you're magic, I love youuuu.
"(Was becoming impossible to hide and if one more person asks me if I've had my t*ts done in LA I'm gonna scream) Here goessssssss."
