Former Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse has shared the exciting news that she is expecting her first child.

Oti and husband Marius revealed the news on her ITV Saturday morning show and then took to social media with images of the couple and her growing bump.

The professional dancer shared a selection of pictures of her and Marius looking loved up as they smiled for the camera.

Oti wore a pink off the shoulder jumpsuit that showed off her growing bump.

She wrote: “Our “yes” year is getting better and better and so is our little family.

“We feel finally ready and excited to share our wonderful news. 

"This is new for us scarier than swimming with sharks, jumping off cliffs or even swinging from bridges but the best news we could have ever ask for.

“We love our little bundle of joy so much already… and can’t wait to see what our future will now look like as family of 3 plus Leo it’s been a beautiful journey so far with close friends and family and nearly over but we have learnt a lot along the way…. Christmas is about to get even louder.”

Oti’s fellow professional dancers were quick to share their congratulations.

Gorka Marquez wrote: “Congrats to you both.”

While Giovanni Pernice wrote: “Yeeeey.”

Fellow professional dancer and sister, Motsi Mabuse wrote: “Auntie love.”

Following the announcement Oti took to her Instagram again to share a video compilation of the moment they shared their happy news with their friends and family all over the world.

With excitement, tears and hugs, the news has clearly been emotional for those close to the couple.

She captioned the post: “BREAKING THE NEWS TO FAMILY & FRIENDS

“Living in a different country as a couple means you don’t have family around to break the news face to face to.”

She continued: “And most often friends became family. 

"We are so extremely lucky with our group of friends, *disclaimer* this isn’t all of them not enough video space but we kept our circle really tight, full of positive energy, laughter and joy.

“Because that first and secondly trimester can we super, super challenging.

Really grateful.”
