Rachel Riley looks every inch the doting mother as she and husband Pasha Kovalev take daughters Maven 3, and Noah, 2, to family event
Rachel Riley and her husband Pasha Kovalev were all smiles on Saturday as they took their daughters to the opening of Gabby on the Go, an interactive experience in Lakeside, London.
The Countdown presenter, who is mum to three-year-old Maven and Noah, two, looked effortlessly chic as she donned a pink stripy jumper and ripped denim jeans.
Her blonde tresses were styled in a half up bun and she looked happy and relaxed as she casually held Noah on her hip.
Former Strictly Come Dancing star Pasha, 43, wore a navy top with jeans, which he paired with red trainers.
Rachel, 36, gave her Instagram followers a glimpse of what went on throughout the morning and told them: ‘We’ve been having a very fun morning. We’ve seen the cats, we’ve done some dancing, we’ve done some playing and it’s been brilliant!’

The couple were joined by former Strictly pros Ola and James Jordan who also attended the event with their daughter Ella, three.
Ola looked fashionable in a pair of beige trousers and baggy white jumper, under a cream padded gilet.
She added a cool edge to her look with some chunky cream boots and wore a face of elegant make-up.
Husband James wore a brown shearling jacket and brown trousers with brown boots.
The two families posed for a snap alongside Gabby, the star of the Netflix animated series.
The outing comes after Rachel, who has been Countdown’s mathematician for 14 years, was left red-faced earlier this month when she was unable to solve a numerical problem.
Contestants were challenged to use the numbers selected to create a final number of 477, which none were able to do.
Rather than show off her skills and wow viewers on how to reach the exact number in a usually impressively quick time, Rachel was unable to do so and instead told the Channel 4 show’s host, Colin Murray: ‘You will have to come back to me Colin.’

Viewers quickly picked up on Rachel’s gaffe with some fans claiming the sum was ‘obvious’.
Colin 46, officially took over hosting duties from Anne Robinson, 78, earlier this year after she quit amid tensions with her co-stars.
Talking to The Mirror, he briefly addressed the much-published feud, saying that the atmosphere had changed following Anne’s departure.
Colin stepped in for former presenter Anne Robinson last year and is said to be overjoyed at landing his dream job.
