Admitting he was apprehensive to be the sole caregiver to their child for a few days, he said: ‘I was terrified because I was like “you’re going to be there for three days”, what am I going to do?’

Kevin was later asked whether he thinks Minnie will follow in his rhythmic footsteps and become a professional dancer when she grows up. 

He said: ‘It’s a very competitive place you are getting your self worth from something that is objective. With dancing you are competing with other people’s opinions.’

Stacey quipped: ‘In an ideal world Minnie will be a librarian.’

The couple met while competing on Strictly Come Dancing in 2018, going onto win the show, and their romance came to light several months later.

In an interview last year, Stacey has admitted motherhood is her ‘hardest gig ever,’ and for now she and Kevin have ruled out another baby as they feel they are ‘failing’ at being parents.

Stacey also told The Sun how she’s in less of a hurry to marry Kevin as he’s already been married and divorced three times.

Stacey said: ‘Marriage has never been massively important to me. Also, it’s well documented that Kev’s done it a couple of times before.

‘So, you do have to bear that in mind, coming down the aisle like, ”Hello everyone, I know what you’re all thinking”. It’s just never been something I’ve dreamt about. But I couldn’t have done this (motherhood) without Kev.’

The star added: ‘I don’t know how people have four children. I’ve had one and am completely failing.’

Stacey had previously reflected on being childless at 35 while living as a nun for the BBC film Inside The Convent, promoting an emotional meltdown to the other sisters.
