One happy follower commented, “Congratulations what lovely news, you will both make wonderful parents.”

While another replied, ”Congratulations to you both enjoy your new life. Look forward to seeing pictures of her and her name!!”

Someone else added, “Wonderful news! Congratulations to you both, and welcome to the world baby Jordon.”

The Strictly pair, who fell pregnant with their daughter through IVF, have previously opened up about their fertility struggle.

Ola formerly told Hello Magazine, "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."

The couple, who have been married for 16 years, announced they were expecting back in December.

Ola shared a sweet picture of herself holding a pink balloon while James held a pair of ballerina shoes.

The 37-year-old dancer captioned it, "I’m so excited we are having a baby girl".

The star recently revealed to Closer Magazine that her husband was more nervous about the arrival.

She said, "I don't know what to expect with the birth - I'm scared, but millions and millions of women do it, so it can't be that bad surely?

"But James is more scared than me, more afraid. He'll be a terrible birthing partner!"
