Ola Jordan has opened up on her and husband James' future plans, admitting having more kids may not be in the cards for them.
The 38 year old professional dancer and her 42 year old husband welcomed their first child, now-one year old Ella, in February last year after going through three years of IVF treatment.
While the pandemic hasn't been easy to deal with for anyone, the Strictly Come Dancing couple plunged themselves into parenthood and have loved every minute of it.
However, their time in various lockdowns and restrictions have also been full of worry and heartbreak over James' dad Alan, who recently tragically died from an aggressive brain tumour.

In light of all that has happened, Ola and James have thought twice about having another child, despite the desire to expand their brood.
"Family is the most important thing," Ola said. "When you see your parents get very ill, it makes you look at your own life. We have a baby to think about now, to make sure our baby is OK."
Ola continued: "We would love to have more children, but unfortunately this is not the right time for us.

"And we're not sure if it will happen again as we were very lucky to get pregnant with our first IVF."
She added: "But with everything that's happened with James' dad, it's a reminder how very fortunate we are."
Speaking on James' father, Ola went on to explain how "shocking" it had been to see Alan deteriorate despite being a "really healthy man" prior to the diagnosis.

"James is really struggling because he's very close to his dad," she said. "It's been very emotional, but I've just got to be strong for him because I have a baby to look after. All I can do is be a shoulder to cry on right now.
"It's a very difficult and sad time."
On Saturday 13 March, James sadly announced his father had passed away as he wrote over a black background: "My dad became an angel at 8.05 am I will forever miss him My dad will always be my HERO RIP Daddy," [sic] which he posted on Instagram.
