And now, the pair have shared a rather exciting update about their upcoming bundle of joy.

Speaking to Hello! magazine, the couple recalled the moment they found out the gender of their baby.

Neil was on stage during the Strictly Come Dancing: The Professionals tour, when he and Chyna were joined by his co-stars – Dianne Buswell, Gorka Marquez, Vito Coppola, Carlo Gu, Karen Hauer, Nikita Kuzmin, Luba Mushtuk, Nancy Xu, and Jowita Przystal.

Surrounded by his pals, the pair cut into a specially-made cake and discovered they would be welcoming a daughter.

Neil told the publication: “They were as thrilled as us.

“They’d been trying to guess if we were expecting a girl or a boy, and for the Hello! photoshoot the girls wore pink or blue eyeshadow, depending on what they thought.

“Dianne was like, “Your daughter will have so many (Strictly) aunties now!” Chyna and I are so happy and I can’t wait to be a dad.”

Chyna also revealed she had a feeling their baby was a girl – recalling “horrendous morning sickness” which according her mum, “is a sign.”

Chyna and Neil took their relationship public in August, taking a romantic trip to Paris as they revealed their romance.

They had previously sent romance rumours flying when they were spotted holding hands at last year's Reality TV awards.

Chyna even teased that her relationship with Neil Jones may be ready to progress to marriage, telling a fan on Instagram: "I'll invite you to the wedding.

Then in April, the pair dropped two bombshells: that they were engaged and that they were expecting their first child.

Speaking to Hello! magazine about the couple’s pregnancy and engagement, Chyna said: "After the baby news, we were on cloud nine – and now this. It still doesn't feel real."

Neil added: "I'd already planned to ask Chyna to marry me before we knew she was pregnant. Then we found out and I was like: 'Oh, this is brilliant, everything is coming together’."

Chyna coupled up with Jay Younger during her short stint on Love Island last year, where she made her debut appearing in the Casa Amor twist.

The Love Island pair remained friends as a romantic relationship failed to blossom.

Strictly's Neil was previously married to Strictly co-star Katya Jones for six years before parting ways in September 2019
