Taking to Instagram on Valentine’s Day, Dooley appeared to have a change of heart after shiedlying her baby away from being online. 

She shared a sweet video of Clifton – who she met while featuring on Strictly in 2018 – cradling their newborn daughter.

Dooley and Clifton announced their pregnancy news in August by sharing a snap of the documentary maker cradling her bump with Instagram followers.

She wrote at the time: ‘Gaaaaaaang… We are having a baby! So bloody delighted. Kev, you’re magic, I love youuuu.

‘(Was becoming impossible to hide and if one more person asks me if I’ve had my tits done in LA I’m gonna scream). Here goessssssss.’

Clifton also shared the same picture and wrote: ‘We’re having a baby! And I think my girl @staceydooley looks beautiful pregnant.’

Dooley appeared on The One Show just days later, where she admitted to being thrilled by the prospect of becoming a mother for the first time.

‘I’m delighted, I can’t quite believe it,’ she told host Ronan Kemp after he congratulated her. 

Dooley and Clifton were crowned Strictly champions in 2018 after winning viewers’ hearts with their incredible partnership.

She confirmed their romance back in April 2019 as she finally went Instagram official after weeks of speculation, and four months after winning the show.

The duo had remained coy about their relationship after her ex-boyfriend Sam Tucknott revealed in an explosive interview with the Mail On Sunday that their five-year relationship had ended.

Dooley took to Twitter soon to insist there ‘are two sides to every story’ after her ex branded thrice-married Kevin ‘a rat’.

She wrote: ‘Anyone with any adult life experience knows there are 2 sides to every story. I haven’t got the time or energy to correct some of the utter nonsense I’ve read on here.

‘Re Sam, I loved him v much and only wish him happiness and success going forward.’

He was previously married to fellow Strictly pro dancer Karen Hauer, who he split from after three years of marriage, and a year prior to meeting Stacey.

Prior to Karen, Kevin previously married Clare Craze in 2007 after meeting two years before in a salsa bar. They split in 2010.
