Dancing On Ice judge Ashley Banjo announced his wife Francesca is pregnant with their first child on Wednesday October 10.
The Diversity dancer even revealed the gender of the child, telling fans that they have a little girl on the way.
While Ashley has been private about his wife’s pregnancy journey, the star couldn’t help but share an adorable video of his unborn baby this weekend appearing to have a dance in his mum’s tummy – proving it’s like father like daughter when it comes to rocking the moves.
Ashley counted down before singing a made up song to his wife’s bump, as she kicked and moved around rapidly for her giggling parents.
“The bump decided to wake us up at 3am – She was full of it last night! I think this counts as her first dance lesson from me!?” Ashley wrote to his 388,000 Instagram followers.
“I AM IN LOVE ALREADY! She signed off by kicking me in the face just to let me know who’s boss #5678#gobabygobaby #babybump.”
The Britain’s Got Talent star then planted a peck on Francesca’s blossoming bump, as the pair laughed and smiled in the heartwarming moment.
It comes after Ashley revealed his baby news to fans, explaining that it had been a “difficult journey” into having a child.
Alongside a snap of the two of them holding up a scan picture, he wrote: “I am so excited to finally share the news that we are having a baby!! Now the time has come to finally say this out loud I have no idea what to say!
“I don’t know if words alone can explain how full of joy and happiness we both are. It has been a more difficult journey to this point than most people know but we are now here with one of the most precious gifts in the world… A little girl!
“I have so many strong and incredible women around me, I know she will have great examples to follow. Especially this woman right here – my wife and my rock.”
He added: “You are going to be the best mum in the world. I’m so excited to see our little one grow up and if by any chance she wanted to be like her daddy and bust a few moves, I’ve already got the dancing shoes covered! Can’t wait to meet you little sweetie.”
Ashley and Francesca have been together for 13 years, and married for three – with Ashley constantly praising his wife for her support.
