Kevin Kilbane and Brianne Delcourt, who fell in love when they were paired together on Dancing On Ice in 2019, are expecting their second baby, nine months after welcoming their first child together
Dancing On Ice couple Brianne Delcourt and Kevin Kilbane are expecting their second child together.
The pair, who fell for each other when they were paired up on the 2019 series, have announced Brianne’s pregnancy just nine months after they welcomed their first child together.
Their whirlwind love story saw them get married the year after they met and welcome daughter Olivia Mai on February 3, this year.
And now, baby number two is on the way.
Sharing the exciting news with OK!, Brianne said: “We’re extremely excited, but we know it’s going to be a mad house! We’re just going to have to wing it. Olivia and the new baby are only going to be 15 months apart.”
Kevin added: “We have a mad house anyway, so we may as well add to the carnage. It’s very exciting.”
The couple, who also have a puppy named Cash after their mutual love of Johnny Cash, admitted that they feel “lucky” that everything has fallen into place for them since they met.
Brianne had a tough time at the beginning of the pregnancy, feeling sick, but hopefully that’s the worst of it after she suffered haemorrhaging during her last pregnancy.
Kevin said: “We’d never heard of a haemorrhage in pregnancy so when you’re told that you think the worst. It was worrying to see how the pregnancy was progressing and the first 10 weeks involved a lot of appointments and scans. Bri was told not to bend down and pick the girls up but, of course, she didn’t listen to a word they said and it is hard with kids.
“But once we were told the haemorrhage had shrunk everything became more relaxing. What’s important now is just to get Bri through the next 20 weeks of the pregnancy.”
Former professional footballer Kevin, 44, is also dad to Elsie, 16, and Isla, 14, and skating pro Brianne, 40, is also mum to Gracie, three.
After they welcomed their first child together, Brianne said: “We love you so much and Gracie has never been more excited to get a baby sister and bestie for life.”
So it’s safe to say everyone is going to be more than a little bit excited about the new arrival.
The first pregnancy came as a bit of a surprise to the couple.

Kevin told OK! at the time: “Everything may seem fast in other people’s eyes and we can’t believe it ourselves but we do everything together so this was naturally the next step.”
After falling for each other on the ITV show, Kevin popped the question in February 2020, and they secretly tied the knot last September, having to make adjustments to their plans because of the coronavirus pandemic.
They had planned to get married in Ireland, but when things had to be put on hold, they ended up tying the knot at the Bonnie View Inn in Haliburton, Ontario instead.
