Months after their wedding day, the pair became parents for the first time when Rachel gave birth to Maven.

What did Rachel say at the time?

In a post on Instagram, Rachel announced Maven’s birth saying: “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.”

She added: “After keeping us waiting she came so fast we didn’t get to hospital & was born in our bathroom with our amazing doula & wonderful St Mary’s midwives rushing over to be with us just in time!

“She’s absolutely perfect & Pasha & I are in newborn bliss. Couldn’t be more in love.”
