Rachel Riley and Pasha Kovalev release adorable new pictures of baby Maven

The little cutie is six weeks old

Countdown star Rachel Riley has shared new images of her adorable daughter Maven, who was born in December.

The tot – who Rachel shares with former Strictly Come Dancing pro Pasha Kovalev – arrived two weeks after her due date.
