Congratulations to Ola and James Jordan, who are parents for the first time after welcoming their baby daughter.
The new mum confirmed the little one’s arrival on Instagram, sharing the first photo of their baby girl.
Alongside a photo of the newborn’s hand, she simply wrote: ‘She’s here and she is perfect. #mummy.’
While James shared a glimpse of his daughter’s feet, adding: ‘I’m the happiest man in the world.’
Right on cue, fans and famous friends rushed to congratulate the new parents.
Strictly co-star Neil Jones simply wrote: ‘Congratulations.’
‘Congratulations beautiful,’ Christine McGuinness posted, while Scott agreed: ‘Wow congrats guys amazing news.’
Zoe Ball commented: Oh my goodness. Congratulations mumma xx.’
The former Strictly Come Dancing professionals conceived after starting IVF treatment last June.
At the time Ola, 37, suggested that their little one had already picked up her mum and dad’s dancing feet.
‘When we had the scan it was funny because the baby was dancing. I’m not sure if it was a cha-cha or a jive, but it was definitely dancing,’ Ola told Hello!.
The married couple first appeared on Strictly in 2006, staying on the show for 18 years collectively. James left the dance competition in 2013 – and went on to win Dancing on Ice in 2018 – while Polish dancer Ola followed two years later.
Ola and James, 42, described the pregnancy their greatest achievement so far.
‘We’ve been with each other for 20 years, married for 16, travelled the world, achieved amazing things in our careers: trophies, accolades, Ola won Strictly Come Dancing, I won Dancing On Ice,’ James said.
‘But finding out that we are pregnant is no doubt our biggest achievement ever. This is probably the most special and exciting thing that has ever happened to us.’
They have previously spoken honestly about their struggle to conceive naturally.
At the time Ola told Hello! it was ‘upsetting’ to talk about their secret fertility struggle as they had always hoped it would happen naturally.
‘James is also desperate to have babies and I just wish it could have happened by now. That’s the one gift I would love to give him,’ she said.
‘I guess I just thought, like most women, that I could choose when the time was right for me; that I could have my career and then have a baby when it felt right. But for us it just hasn’t happened like that.’
When the couple revealed they would be having a girl, James joked that she would be a daddy’s girl through and through, but joked: ‘She will be locked up until she’s at least 32.’
And they will be keeping to defined gender roles as James previously blasted the idea of raising her gender neutral.
‘In my opinion, it’s ridiculous!’ James scoffed to Celebrity Secrets.
However Ola added: ‘Don’t get me wrong, if we have a boy and he wants to be a girl when he’s older, then that’s fine,’ with James adding: ‘That’s his choice – it’s not our decision.’
