Rachel Riley was full of “the joys of pregnant married life” as showed off her growing baby bump in photos from her honeymoon.

The Countdown star, who married former Strictly Come Dancing professional Pasha Kovalev in Las Vegas last month, shared a string of pictures from her trip to Spain on Instagram.

One shot showed the presenter posing by the beach in a stripy dress with her hands on her hips, while a second image saw Riley smile for the camera in a turquoise bikini.

She gave followers a sweet insight into the couple’s break in her caption, writing: “The new joys of pregnant married life - Pasha digging me a belly hole on the beach for my bump each day!”

In an Instagram shot shared earlier this week, the TV star appeared to drop a hint about the new baby’s gender.

Posting a photo of her and Kovalev posing in front of Bilbao’s Guggenheim Museum, she wrote:

“Half-way bump and all brewing nicely! Mother’s intuition says it’s definitely a girl. Or a boy. Or a cockapoo.”

Riley broke the news of her surprise wedding to her Instagram followers in June as she shared a snap of her and her new husband posing in front of a floral display.

“Introducing the new Mr and Mrs Kovalev. We both said yes!” she wrote, adding a string of wedding-appropriate emojis.

The couple, who met when they were partnered on Strictly Come Dancing in 2013 and started dating the following year, announced the pregnancy in May.

Posing in front of an anagram of “maternity” on the infamous Countdown letter board, Riley said: “Pash and I have a conundrum for you… you have till December to work it out!”

She added that they were “over the moon excited” to welcome their first child together.
