Ore Oduba and wife Portia are expecting first child

Strictly Come Dancing champ Ore Oduba has announced that he and his wife Portia are expecting their first child together.

The couple, who tied the knot in a romantic ceremony at Penshurst Place in Kent in November 2015, made the joint announcement on Instagram on Thursday morning.

Sharing a shot of pretty Portia clutching her small baby bump as she posed behind a playfully shocked Ore, the jovial TV personality gushed that 'starting a family has always been a dream' for the couple.

He started off his emotional caption: 'Not sure what I did to deserve this one. My best friend, the most amazing wife and soon to be the most amazing mum.'

'Been a pretty life-changing last 12 months,' he continued. 'Now @portiajett and I are preparing for our biggest adventure yet! Can't hide our excitement anymore...

'Starting a family has always been our dream. And no prizes for guessing.. THERE. WILL. BE. TEARS!!!! #babynews #pregnancyannouncement #tinydancer.' 

All eyes were on Ore Oduba and Portia Oduba as they packed on the PDA on the British Soap Awards 2017 red carpet at The Lowry, Manchester on Saturday

Dressed to impress in a tartan suit, the Strictly Come Dancing winner, 31, couldn't keep his hands off his lover, 29, as he gave her an affectionate smooch on the cheek. 

The sports presenter cut a dapper appearance as he styled a burgundy tie and smart pointed shiny shoes for the occasion.

While he stole the hearts on the dancing show in 2016, the TV personality showed he only had eyes for the beautiful blonde.

Portia looked stunning as she showcased her ample assets and slender figure in a off-the-shoulder salmon pink frock.

Tossing her blonde locks from her face, she showed off her beautiful features accentuated by natural make-up.

The couple joined the good and the great of the showbiz world for the red carpet event, including Ore's dance partner on the show Joanne Clifton.

The professional ballroom dancer looked sensational in a floor-length gown for the night's events.

And the trio looked very cosy as they posed arm-in-arm as they showed they were unaffected by the supposed 'Strictly curse'.

But in a recent appearance on Lorraine Kelly's show in March, the broadcast journalist revealed the couple had barely had anytime for each other.

The hostess brazenly asked him: 'So when are you going to have babies?' 

To which he gave a tongue-and-cheek response: 'Are you going to get on my back with the babies as well as my mum and dad?

'Give us a break! Give us a chance! We haven’t got the time!' He added: 'Last year we spent about a day together!'

Earlier, he had been with his wife at the TV BAFTA awards in London, but there was no sign of her when he was seen at the Mondrian hotel.

The pair - who were clearly just friends - held hands, and later posted some tongue-in-cheek snaps of themselves dancing together and calling each other their best friends to their Instagram pages.

'We’re all great friends. At least we see the funny side', Ore recently told The Sun of the furore the photos had caused. 

Last month Oduba and his wife, a TV researcher, had been reporting together on the events in for ITV’s This Morning.
