Strictly Come Dancing star Kristina Rihanoff and her partner, former rugby player Ben Cohen, have introduced their baby daughter for the first time.Their daughter was born on 24th June at Northampton General Hospital weighing 7lb 1oz, and Ben was at Kristina’s side during the gruelling 19-and-a-half-hour labour.
In an interview for Hello! Magazine, the couple reveal that the labour took longer than anticipated because the umbilical cord was wrapped around the baby’s neck. “Every time Kristina pushed, the cord was pulling the baby back,” said Ben.
Kristina added: “I can’t even begin to describe the pain, but it’s an incredibly proud moment when you see your baby for the first time. It’s an incredible feeling of love.”
Russian-born Kristina, 38, revealed her daughter has been given the Slavic name of Milena, shortened to Mila.
