Rachel Riley reflects on miscarriage in bittersweet New Year’s Day post

Rachel Riley shared a heartwarming, bittersweet New Year message as she reflected on losing a baby a year ago.

The 35-year-old Countdown star, who married 41-year-old Russian professional dancer Pasha Kovalev two years ago, wrote how grateful she was for her beautiful family.

The couple share daughters Maven, two, and two-month-old Noa, but at one point last year they were also expecting another baby.

“Last year around this time I was shedding a tear for the baby he wasn’t meant to be,” the math genius, who greeted his daughter Noa with a series of cute snaps in November, told his followers.

“This year we were dancing with two little girls in tow.”

Alongside her New Year’s message, Rachel shared a new picture of her two little girls and the view was absolutely adorable.

With little Noa now bursting into smiles, she is lying on a bed giggling with her older sister Maven curled up next to her.

The older sister, who already looks a lot like her father Pasha, wore pink and purple pajamas and pigtails in her hair as she gently placed her hand on the baby’s chest.

Baby Noa looked just as cute in a bright rainbow print onesie and already sports a full head of blonde hair.

TV personality Rachel finished her tenure acknowledging the hardships everyone has faced over the past 12 months.

“If you had a great last year or if 2021 was tough, wishing you a happy, healthy and better 2022,” added the star.

Friends and fans alike rushed to the comments to show their support for the mom of two.

“Happy New Year to you and that wonderful family,” wrote one person.

Another fan cheered: “Aaah, they’re great, Rachel, thanks for sharing them. I’m so glad you and Pasha are having a much happier time. I hope we will all have a better year in 2022, I much prefer the numbers to watch too! I can’t wait to see you again on TV, but I’m sure you don’t want to rush back! “

While a third said, “I’m sorry about the thing that didn’t happen, but you deserve all the happiness you have now … enjoy your beautiful family.”

“Awwww Rachel they are both so beautiful, even though I am really sorry for your loss last year. Think your two are destined to be heartthrob! ” added a fourth follower.
