“And your clue is… Riley had this to thank for the reason her clothes no longer fit her…

Rachel and Pasha live in a stunning home, and the star previously confessed that she has been using the lockdown days to snap pictures of her adorable daughter, writing: "After a busy day of lockdown life, our schedule dictated by Mrs, before bed I always end by looking at the squillions of pictures of this little one I've taken through the day," she tweeted.

Back in December 2019, just days before Maven arrived, Rachel posed in a tie-dyed sports bra as she cradled her bump surrounded by gifts she had been sent on the bed which had a simple headboard.

The Christmas tree was perched in the corner glowing with multicoloured lights to match her colourful baby outfits following Maven's birth.

They also had an array of mismatched ornaments on display as well as a framed illustration of a badger wearing a pink coat.
