Former Strictly Come Dancing professional Kevin Clifton has shared his excitement following the recent news that he and his partner Stacey Dooley are expecting their first child together.

While appearing on The One Show last night (August 30), host Ronan Keating welcomed Kevin to the red sofa and congratulated him on the joyous news, saying: "And Kevin, you are having a baby! Congratulations."

To which the star replied: "Yes, thank you very much! I am very excited. I am gonna have to grow up now!"

Kevin and Stacey announced the baby news last week after they both posted a photo of the latter cradling her growing bump on Instagram.

"Gaaaaaaang….. We are having a baby," Stacey captioned her picture. "So bloody delighted. Kev, you're magic, I love youuuu."

Posting the same snap on his own page, Kevin wrote: "We're having a baby! And I think my girl @sjdooley looks beautiful pregnant."

The couple met when they got partnered up on Strictly Come Dancing back in 2018, before going on to win the series.

Although the pair are now starting a family together, they denied rumours that they were engaged earlier this year after Stacey was spotted wearing a new ring.

"I'm not getting married," she said. "You would absolutely be the first to know, but no, I'm so dull. I'm not getting married."

It seems the presenter has no plans to get married either, as last year she admitted that she's not fussed about marrying Kevin, but was "more interested in starting a family" with him.

"I can't think of anything worse than being a Tradwife," Stacey continued. "I would be useless, completely and utterly useless. He'd divorce me in a heartbeat."

Strictly Come Dancing airs on BBC One.
