'Strictly Come Dancing' star Ore Oduba and his wife Portia have announced they are preparing for the arrival of their first child
Ore Oduba's wife Portia is expecting her first baby with the 'Strictly Come Dancing' champion.
The 31-year-old TV presenter - who won the BBC dancing competition last year - has announced via his Instagram account that the blonde beauty is pregnant, predicting Portia will make an "amazing mum".
Alongside a photograph of himself looking shocked and Portia holding her baby bump, Ore wrote: "Not sure what I did to deserve this one. My best friend, the most amazing wife and soon to be the most amazing mum
"Been a pretty life-changing last 12 months, now @portiajett and I are preparing for our biggest adventure yet! Can't hide our excitement anymore Starting a family has always been our dream. And no prizes for guessing.. THERE. WILL. BE. TEARS!!!! #babynews #pregnancyannouncement #tinydancer (sic)"
Portia - who married the TV star in November 2015 - also took to her own Instagram account to share a snap of herself holding her baby bump.
She captioned the image: "Baby Oduba... We already love you so much (sic)"
Earlier this year, Ore joked with Lorraine Kelly that he and has wife have been too busy to think about having any children.
The former 'Strictly' star admitted his life has been more hectic than ever since his appearance on the popular show, meaning that he and Portia hadn't had the chance to spend a lot of quality time together.
He said, tongue-in-cheek: "Are you going to get on my back with the babies as well as my mum and dad?
"Give us a break! Give us a chance! We haven't got the time!"
He later said: "Last year we spent about a day together!"
