Former Strictly Come Dancing star Ola Jordan celebrated the imminent arrival of her daughter with a lavish baby shower at a Kent restaurant last weekend.
The former Strictly pro, 37, is expecting her first child with husband James Jordan , 41, a fellow ex dancing star.
The couple, who have been together for 20 years, are expecting their daughter together following fertility troubles which meant they needed IVF treatment.
The mummy-to-be threw a lavish baby shower to celebrate her miracle baby at Kent's swanky Secret Garden restaurant which features a Victorian walled garden and cobbled courtyard.
Ola was joined by her closest friends and family to enjoy a glamorous weekend relaxing at the Ashford hotspot with a traditional afternoon tea party.
The dancing queen kicked off her celebrations last weekend, giving fans a sneak peek into her baby shower on her social media accounts on Friday night.
On Instagram the star shared a series of snaps with her 258K followers teasing a glimpse at the flamboyant pink-themed decor, scrumptious afternoon tea and pretty non-alcoholic cocktails.
Ola accentuated her blossoming baby bump as she dressed in a floral maxi dress with billowing material draping elegantly across her figure.
The dancer posed for a variety of snaps with her friends and family who joined her in standing against a lavish cream flower wall to pose up a storm.
Ensuring she was the centre of attention, Ola donned a mummy-to-be sash and proudly cradled her bump for the photos.
Ola went all out for her imminent arrival and hired a luxury party planner to ensure the venue was decked out with extravagant pink-themed decor.
Guests indulged in a pink doughnut wall, mini bottles of personalised rose wine and embellished non-alcoholic cocktails.
Evaly Events lined up a fun afternoon of games while Ola and the guests enjoyed a high tea of scones, pastries and petits fours with champagne.
Ola also proudly unveiled her baby shower cake which was lovingly created and made by one of her friends.
The pink-and-white sponge looked amazing and featured a baby pink bag filled with iced baby essentials including a soft-grey blanket, a bottle, a dummy and booties all expertly made from coloured icing.
The venue appeared fully transformed for the occasion and featured oversized balloons in different shades of pink, baby blocks and a glittering pink table mat.
Ola, who is due to give birth in March, recently revealed in an interview with Closer Magazine that hubby James is more nervous about the labour than she is.
"I don't know what to expect with the birth – I'm scared, but millions and millions of women do it, so it can't be that bad surely?" she revealed.
"But James is more scared than me, more afraid. He'll be a terrible birthing partner!"
Of their Christmas discovery of the gender of their baby, James recently spoke about why this was the best time to find out in an interview the couple did with Hello! Magazine.
James revealed: "Because we were quite nervous going through IVF we didn't want to jinx anything… Now we know it's a little girl it just feels very real now. It's amazing."
Back in September, the couple announced they were expecting their first child after struggling to get pregnant for three years.
Ola, 37, became pregnant in June last year after a successful round of IV, their first attempt at the treatment.
James then revealed that the doctor told them their only option was IVF, and that there was a 50% chance that it would work.
Ola and Jordan married in 2003, and used to compete in dance competitions – winning the British Championships for Professional Latin in 2006.
