Rachel Riley has delighted fans by sharing a new brand new photo of her adorable daughter, Maven, on Instagram, one year after sharing a very similar snap...

The Countdown star and footie fan had positioned her little one alongside a selection of Manchester United-themed stuffed toys to mark her football team's Premier League match against Liverpool FC on Sunday (17 January).

Little Maven was also sporting a red outfit emblazoned with the words 'Manchester United' in the photo, in support of Rachel's favourite team.

In the sweet snap, the one-year-old tot is laughing happily as she holds a football between her little legs.

And, if you scroll to the right on mum Rachel's post, it's clear the football-themed photoshoot is quickly becoming a family tradition. In the second snap, we see a much younger baby Maven smiling at the camera as she lies next to the same assortment of Manchester United stuffed toys.

This lovely snap was taken almost exactly a year ago before Man United's big match against Liverpool FC in January 2020.

Writing in the accompanying caption, Rachel noted how much her daughter has grown up in the intervening 12 months.

"What a difference a year makes!" she said, before wishing her team luck.

Fans were loving the sweet post, and have inundated it with comments about Maven. "She's gorgeous," wrote one, while another added, "Too cute".

Rachel and her former Strictly Come Dancing pro husband, Pasha Kovalev, welcomed daughter Maven back in December 2019 after tying the knot in Las Vegas in May 2019.
