Rachel Riley has discovered that she married Pasha Kovalev in a mystery Las Vegas wedding ceremony on Friday.
The couple, who are watching for their first child together, exchanged vows in Sin city after preserving the ceremony ‘so mystery’ that most people of their pals and circle of relatives are said to have been ignorant of the nuptials.
Taking to Instagram on Sunday, the pregnant Countdown star, 33, confirmed the news as she shared a picture from their big day, captioned: ‘Introducing the new Mr. and Mrs. Kovalev… We both said yes!’
Rachel, who is believed to have just entered her second trimester of pregnancy, sheathed her baby bump in a printed cream and pink mini dress for the ceremony.
The blonde beauty radiated with a healthy pregnancy glow that shone through her minimal make-up, whilst her glossy golden locks were styled in a chic chignon.
Rachel completed her bridal ensemble with a pair of nude court heels, whilst she clutched her bouquet of red and white roses.
Pasha, 39, made for a dapper groom in a navy blazer teamed with a polka dot shirt, beige chinos, and boater shoes.
‘By keeping everything a closely guarded secret, they pulled it off and surprised their loved ones. Naturally, everyone is delighted.’
Rachel and Pasha will welcome their first child together in December.
In May, Rachel announced her pregnancy by posing in front of a board of letters, which spelt out ‘r tiny mate’, which is an anagram for ‘maternity’, as she placed her hands on her blossoming baby bump.
