Last month, TV star Maven revealed that she hopes to be bilingual as a husband and that strictly cum dancing professional Pasha Kovelev will speak to her ‘entirely in Russian’.
It was so sweet: the countdown presenter, 34, looked bright as she hugged her 10-month-old daughter and kept her mouth open as she counted her upcoming first birthday.
On ETV’s Good Morning Britain she said: ‘Pasha speaks to her entirely in Russian and I hope she is bilingual as I speak to her in English.’
Rachel added: ‘She is very mobile, she crawls and can now walk with one hand.’
The family spent the lockdown with their Russian mother-in-law Galina, and the visit to the UK amid the pandemic lasted for a month.

The couple, who became parents to Maven for the first time in December, met strictly and spent most of their time at home amid the global COVID-19 pandemic.
The blonde agreed lockdown was a blessing for the family as they were given ‘forced maternity and paternity leave’.
Rachel joined Countdown and entered TV at the age of 22 as a Maths graduate.
