Rachel Riley is expecting her second child with husband Pasha Kovalev.
The presenter, 35, announced her pregnancy with a hilarious Instagram post on Wednesday, asking her fans to figure out her latest Countdown conundrum, which aptly spelt the phrase fertility.
Rachel tied the knot with Strictly star Pasha, 41, in 2019 in a surprise Las Vegas ceremony, and welcomed her first child, daughter Maven, 16 months, later that year.

Rachel’s post showed her cradlling her blossoming bump in a pretty black floral mini dress as she posed alongside the famous Countdown letters board.
With the tiles spelling out the phrase ‘Fitt Riley’ Rachel asked her fans to guess what the correct word could be, with many quickly guessing it must be ‘Fertility.’
Rachel’s caption read: ‘A special teatime teaser! And your clue is… Riley had this to thank for the reason her clothes no longer fit her…
‘And it’ll only get worse till Autumn! Happy, happy days for our little family @pashakovalev and future big sister Mave.’

Together: It comes just weeks after Rachel spoke about her hopes of having another baby with her former Strictly Come Dancing star Pasha
Rachel’s post continued the trend of her first baby announcement in 2019, which saw her reveal she was expecting with a Countdown teaser that spelt the word ‘maternity.’
The maths guru met Pasha while they competed on Strictly together in 2013, and they married six years later in a surprise Las Vegas ceremony, just weeks after announcing they were set to become parents.
Rachel and Pasha welcomed their first child, daughter Maven Aria in December 2019, with the star announcing her arrival after the tot was two weeks overdue.
Doting: ‘I think we’d like another one… Some of my friends had twins by accident and a few of them have got three little ones and everyone seemed to have them straight after’ she said
She wrote on Instagram at the time: ‘2 weeks after we were expecting her this little one finally made an appearance! Miss Maven (one who understands) Aria (lioness) Riley Kovaleva arrived on Sunday morning weighing in at 7lbs 4.
‘After keeping us waiting she came so quickly we didn’t have a chance to get to the hospital and was born in our bathroom with our amazing doula and wonderful St Mary’s midwives rushing over to be with us in to be nick of time!
‘She’s absolutely perfect and Pasha and I are in newborn bliss. Couldn’t be more in love #newborn #babygirl #maven #baby’.
Last month, Rachel spoke about her hopes of having another baby with her former Strictly Come Dancing star husband Pasha.

In an interview with Hello Magazine, she talked about her desires to add to the family, parenting in lockdown and how their daughter Maven ‘loves dancing’.
Rachel said: ‘I think we’d like another one… Some of my friends had twins by accident and a few of them have got three little ones and everyone seemed to have them straight after. No one regrets it though, do they?’
The TV star also spoke about raising their daughter Maven throughout lockdown and expressed her sadness that she hasn’t been able to go to any baby clubs.

Rachel explained: ‘She’s very happy, she loves dancing. She’s done her first couple of tantrums last week, which at 14 months I’m like ok…it’s kind of funny.’
The television presenter added Maven is sleeping well through the nights, but has missed out on interacting with other children.
She said: ‘Maven was three months old when we went into lockdown, so she’s not socialised with other children, she’s not used to going out to a café and sitting and behaving herself or anything so it’s going to be a bit of a challenge, but parenting is a challenge isn’t it and kids are adaptable, hopefully!’
Rachel recently shared her hopes of Maven being bilingual as husband Pasha talks to her ‘solely in Russian’.
Rachel said on Good Morning Britain: ‘Pasha is speaking to her solely in Russian and I’m speaking to her in English so we’re hoping she’ll be bilingual.’
