The family posed for their very first shoot together as a unit of three for baby clothing company From Babies with Love.

For the shoot Rachel opted for a blue top, natural makeup and let her locks fall naturally onto her shoulders.

Her husband, 39, went for a matching navy jumper, mauve shirt and even also dressed baby Maven Aria in the same colours – as she wore a baby grow with the word “love” written across it in navy.

Rachel shared one of the snaps to her Instagram account and said: “From Babies with Love donate 100% of their profit to orphaned and abandoned children.

“When she’s older I’m going to teach her about creating positive change in the world, for now, I’m trying my best, for my own little one and for children everywhere.

“From Babies with Love’s beautiful, organic baby clothes are such a heartwarming way to contribute. www.frombabieswithlove.org.”

The arrival of Maven Aria was not expected by the pair and the mathematician couldn’t even get to the hospital in time.

Maven Aria, who is called Mave for short, was born in Rachel’s bathroom surrounded by love and support from his family and midwives.

“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.”

Despite being married to James Gilbert, Rachel decided to call time on their fifteen-month marriage in November 2013.

She went on to insist that her relationship with her former husband didn’t break down because of her dancing partnership because of the dreaded Strictly Curse.
