Kristina Rihanoff has revealed that she and her boyfriend Ben Cohen are planning their wedding and baby number two.
The former professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing and her rugby-star beau Ben already have a two-year-old daughter together, Mila, who they welcomed in 2015. The pair met after being coupled up on the BBC dancing show in 2013, and have been linked ever since.
The mum-of-one has now revealed to The Sunday People that the couple are planning to have a second baby together, but they want to wait until the time is right.
‘Another baby is some time in the future – we both like to take it one step at a time’ the 40-year-old star said.
For the time being, the career driven dancer is heading off on tour, leaving Ben to look after their daughter, as well as juggling his parental responsibilities to his twin daughters who he shares with his ex-wife Abbey.
‘It’s a lot of pressure on him to look after the kids but he’s very supportive of me’ Kristina said. ‘Ben’s an incredible dad. I’m very lucky he’s on board with my project.’
Despite looking forward to going on tour with her new dancing show, Kristina also admitted that she finds it incredibly difficult to be away from her baby daughter.
‘Other mums have to go out and work, so I’m no different’, she explained.
‘I’m very lucky to be able to have so much time off and spend the time with Mila’, she added.

‘I want to create some legacy and hopefully something Mila will be proud of when she’s older.’
The former Strictly star also revealed that although they are not engaged yet, ‘marriage’ is definitely in her plans with Ben for the future.
Kristina has never been married before, but Ben Cohen was married to his ex-wife Abbey Blayney for 13 years before their split.
