TV personality Stacey Dooley is pregnant! The 35-year-old made the announcement on 26 Aug by posting a Polaroid photo on her Instagram of her in a black tank top lifted up to expose her bump. "Gaaaaaaang.....We are having a baby! 🤪 So bloody delighted," she captioned the post. "Kev, you're magic, I love youuuu. ❤ (Was becoming impossible to hide and if one more person asks me if I've had my tits done in LA I'm gonna scream 🤣) Here goessssssss 🤪."

Her boyfriend, former "Strictly Come Dancing" professional dancer Kevin Clifton, also posted a photo of Dooley, writing: "We're having a baby! ❤️❤️❤️ And I think my girl @sjdooley looks beautiful pregnant 😊."

The pair won the 2018 series of the BBC show and became a couple months later, after Dooley split with her long-term boyfriend Sam Tucknott. Clifton has been married three times before, splitting from fellow professional dancer Karen Hauer in 2018. We look forward to more of Dooley's no-nonsense chat as she moves through the trimesters.

Celebrity friends were quick to comment on the joyful news. Laura Whitmore wrote, "So delighted for you guys!! Congrats ❤️ xxx," while Big Zuu added, "Congrats my love ❤️."

Dooley has spoken about being childless at 35 and the pressures of the biological clock. The seasoned TV documentary maker had been staying with nuns earlier this year for her BBC show, and they encouraged her to prioritise her own happiness and life goals.

We are thrilled that Dooley and Clifton are starting a family together. With those genes, we imagine some rhythmic kicking on the way.
