Former Strictly Come Dancing star Kristina Rihanoff has revealed marriage to one-time partner Ben Cohen is still ‘a couple of years’ away.
The professional dancer, 41, met her other half Ben, 40, while performing on the 11th series of Strictly in 2013.
Kristina has since had a young daughter, Mila, two, with the former rugby star and announced her pregnancy while taking part in Celebrity Big Brother in 2016.

The dancer has said Ben has made a perfect father, but marriage is not an immediate plan.
She told Hello magazine: ‘It will probably be in a couple of years. Hopefully we’ll gather the family around and it’ll happen.’
She added: ‘Ben is the best dad in the world. Mila is such a daddy’s girl and she’s always on the go.
‘She doesn’t stop. She goes to rugby class, and also to dance and yoga with me. She’s a very active girl.’

During an appearance on Good Morning Britain, Kristina gave her thoughts on the ‘Strictly curse’ which has seen many former partners on the show start dating.
The TV star weighed in following claims last year’s winner Stacey Dooley was dating her professional dance partner Kevin Clifton after splitting from boyfriend Sam Tucknott.
She said: ‘That’s what’s difficult about this because there is always going to be someone hurt or someone feeling it’s wrong what’s happening, but people do meet at work and that’s where we work.’

The Russian dancer admitted that the ‘curse’ affects the show year-in and year-out because of the ‘intense’ environment that celebrities and their professional partners find themselves in.
‘I think it’s about creating a very strong bond and trusting one another,’ she added. ‘The show is very intense… emotionally and physically.
‘At the end of the day you have a very big task in front of you and lots of pressure on your shoulders… people have to trust one another and I think that’s where it all starts.’
