A new world: Strictly Come Dancings Oti Mabuse reveals baby plans

Strictly favourite Oti Mabuse might only be on the BBC dance show a few years but she has sure made an impression.

The South-African has been partnered with some amazing celebrities - remember Danny Mac? - and the 2018 series saw her storm the floor with cricketer Graeme Swann.

Now the 28-year-old has opened up about her plans to have a baby, but the life of a dancer doesn't make it easy.

The pro dancer has been married to husband Marius Lepure for five years and they're keen to have a family of their own.

However, Oti revealed that they want to be a little more settled before they leap into it.

She told OK! magazine, ''We’re not looking for babies right now but eventually, once I’ve settled and we have everything that we want, we’ll definitely have them.''

She continued, ''My sister just had a baby and I can see it doesn’t hold you back. If anything, it’s opened up a new world for her.”

When it comes to baby names, she has some ideas.

She revealed, ''Marius loves the name Ava. I like Romanian names like Bogdan, Aswan or Mihai. My name isn’t from this country, so I like names like that.''

She added, ''I’ll be the soft parent, because Marius has very strict views on kids being healthy and how much TV they should watch!”

We know Oti will make an amazing mum when the time comes.
