As she holds her growing bump, the letter-board behind her shows the phrase 'RTINYMATE' spelled out on it.

Understandably, the presenter is absolutely beaming as she poses for the adorable photo in a yellow patterned dress.

Fans rushed to offer their congratulations to the household name, who is known for her lightning quick mathematical skills.

Rachel and Pasha met when they were paired together on Strictly Come Dancing in 2013.

We can't wait to hear the baby's gender reveal, which could once again come in the form of a riddle.
