Strictly Come Dancing star Kristina Rihanoff has surprised her Celebrity Big Brother housemates by announcing that she’s pregnant.
The dancer revealed the news that she was three months pregnant with her partner Ben Cohen to her stunned housemates last night at around 8pm. The news was greeted with cheers from the housemates who celebrated the announcement with her.
Kristina gathered the housemates to tell them, “There was something (that) happened in my life before I came into the house over Christmas…and obviously I thought it’s very private news, you know but because we are living as one family now and everybody is sort of supporting one another now, it happened to be that I found that my boyfriend and I are going to have a little one.”
After being congratulated by her housemates, an emotional and tearful Kristina added: “Well I found over Christmas. Thank you guys, I just didn’t know how to break it, what to say, when to say, it played on my mind and I wanted everyone to hear.”
Kristina’s spokesperson added: “Kristina and Ben were surprised and delighted to find out that she was pregnant shortly before she entered the Big Brother house. Kristina is well and looking forward to being a mum.”
The baby will be Kristina’s first child and Ben Cohen’s third child. Watch the moment Kristina broke the news below:
