Rachel Riley's Pregnancy Announcement Is Leaving Fans Scratching Their Heads

Congratulations are in order for Countdown's Rachel Riley and former Strictly Come Dancing dancer Pasha Kovalev, who have announced they're expecting their second child together.

The celebrity couple announced the exciting news with a cryptic Tweet posted on Riley's account, in which she left fans guessing at an anagram.

But fans were left scratching their heads by the puzzling clue, a series of letters which spelled out 'FITTRILEY'. Can you guess it?

Some fans guessed correctly, that the letters actually spell out the word 'fertility', and we're overjoyed for the pair.

She wrote, on Twitter: "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!

The celeb couple are already parents to one year old Maven Aria, who they welcomed in December 2019.

At the time, Rachel revealed that the little one was born in their bathroom after they failed to get to hospital on time and thanked the "amazing doula and wonderful St Mary's midwives" for rushing over to help her out "just in the nick of time".

Rachel and Pasha started dating in 2014, when they appeared on Strictly together and got married in 2019. Pasha has since left the series, after eight years of appearing on the show.

Rachel, meanwhile, joined Countdown in 2009, when she replaced the show's longtime maths genius Carol Vorderman.
