'Strictly Come Dancing' professional Neil Jones and 'Love Island' star Chyna Mills have revealed they are having a baby girl.
The couple - who started dating after the dancer slid into the reality star's DMs and got engaged in April - were joined by his fellow 'Strictly Come Dancing: The Professionals' tour stars as they held a gender reveal.
Dancers - including Dianne Buswell, Gorka Marquez, Vito Coppola, Carlo Gu, Karen Hauer, Nikita Kuzmin, Luba Mushtuk, Nancy Xu and Jowita Przystal - all witnessed the moment they sliced into a cake to reveal a pink sponge.
They all cheered: "It's a girl!"
Speaking to HELLO! magazine about the moment they found out the sex of the unborn tot with his 'Strictly' gang, Neil, 41, said: “They were as thrilled as us.
“They’d been trying to guess if we were expecting a girl or a boy, and for the HELLO! photoshoot the girls wore pink or blue eyeshadow, depending on what they thought. Dianne was like, ‘Your daughter will have so many (Strictly) aunties now!’ Chyna and I are so happy and I can’t wait to be a dad.”
Chyna, 24, says she had an inkling she was having a girl because of her intense morning sickness and the fact her mother had it bad with each of her pregnancies with her girls.
She said: “I had horrendous morning sickness, which my mum – who’s had four girls – tells me is a sign. My cravings have been for sweet food, too. Krispy Kreme donuts are my downfall.”
Neil believes their daughter will be a model like his mum because of her long legs, while Chyna is tipping her little girl to be a dancer like daddy.
He said: “During a scan the nurse tried to get the baby to turn.
“When she wouldn’t, the nurse joked, ‘This one’s quite stubborn,’ and I thought, ‘That’s like Chyna.’ The baby even lies with her arms above her head and with her legs crossed – just like her mum. Her legs are really long, so she could be a model, too.”
Chyna added: “I think she’s going to be a dancer, like her dad.
“Whenever we play music or I watch Neil perform, she moves as if she’s trying to dance. I feel she and I know everything about each other, and I talk to her all the time.”
The couple have around 17 weeks until they meet the little one.
Neil admitted: “My outlook on life has changed. It’s not just about me anymore – I need to take care of two people.”2023-06-05T07:01:07Z dg43tfdfdgfd
