Richie Myler has confirmed his pregnancy with girlfriend Stephanie Thirkill.
The rugby star took to Instagram on Monday, 6 March, to share a loved-up snap with his new partner as she showcased her blossoming bump.
Richie and Stephanie, both 32, rested their heads on one another's as the mum-to-be put her hands on Richie's face.
Both wearing white shirts, Stephanie's was buttoned down at the front to show a side profile of her growing bump.
Richie simply captioned the snap with a heart emoji.
The post comes shortly after dad-of-three Richie deleted his Instagram account due to receiving abuse in the wake of the breakdown of his marriage with Strictly Come Dancing star Helen Skelton last year.
"I’ve decided to put my profile private from now on. If you are on here to share my photos or stories of me and my life maliciously to other people or waste your time sending me abusive messages please just unfollow me," he shared in January.
"I'm going to start removing people from my account one by one, so if you are a genuine rugby fan and I accidentally remove you I apologise in advance and will accept you back! Thank you Richie."
Richie's account is now public again, but his recent snap with Stephanie has limited comments on it.
Helen and Richie confirmed the news of their split in April last year just four months after welcoming their third child together.
Taking to Instagram, Helen wrote at the time: "Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple. He has left the family home. We will be doing our best to co parent our small children."
She ended the message with two broken heart emojis.
Stephanie and Richie were first rumoured to be romantically involved last summer, with reports of their now-confirmed pregnancy surfacing in October.

As Richie moves on with Stephanie, Helen is said to be growing close to Strictly's Vito Coppola after "bonding on tour".
Speaking to The Mirror, a source said: “Helen and Vito were good friends during Strictly, but really bonded on tour. There were two buses for the cast – the party bus and the quiet bus."
Her link with Italian Vito – who made the final with singer-songwriter Fleur East – is said to have caught the attention of fellow stars behind the scenes, with the pair enjoying "casual" dates.
