Rachel Riley: Countdown star in make-up free selfie as she gives insight into family life

New mum Rachel Riley, 34, gave fans an insight into her family life on Instagram yesterday.

The Countdown star wrapped up warm and headed out to the park with her seven-week-old baby for some fresh air and posted pictures online shortly after her trip.

TV star Rachel shares daughter Maven Aria with her husband, Strictly Come Dancing star Pasha Kovalev, 40.

In the social media snaps, Rachel can be seen pushing baby Maven in her floral buggy through the park.

Fresh-faced Rachel wears a knitted hat on her head and a large zip up black coat.

The tiny top looked cosy and content in a warm pink coat with purple accessories as she slept soundly in her pram.

Another post showed the proud mum and baby making their way along a tree-lined path with the sun setting in the background.

In her post, Rachel told her 460,000 Instagram followers that she has received a lot of compliments for her colourful pram, which is adorned with pink and red flowers and green foliage.

She wrote: “My new favourite accessory! We get almost as many compliments on the pram as we do the baby.”

She went on to thank the brand who gifted her the item and explained how she likes to “pay it forward” by making a donation to children’s charities.

The mum-of-one continued: “Big thank you to @cybex_global for the super stylish buggy and car seat. They’re Mave’s favourite places to sleep besides on us!”(sic)

“Pash and I are really grateful for the gift, we made a donation to @wearelumos children’s charity to get kids into family homes rather than orphanages to pay it forward. Thanks Cybex! #newmum #pram #parklife #carseat #cybex #gifted.”
