The People - - NEWS FEATURES & - By Ja­nine Yaqoob

KRISTINA Ri­hanoff says she wants a wed­ding and baby num­ber two with Strictly lover Ben Co­hen – when she is not quite as busy as she is right now.

The Rus­sian dancer met the for­mer rugby ace on the BBC show and they went on to have daugh­ter Mila.

Now as Kristina, 40, pre­pares to go on tour for two months, she told how Ben will look after their 16-month-old.

“Ben’s an in­cred­i­ble dad,” she said. “I’m very lucky he’s on board with my project. It’s a lot of pres­sure on him but he’s very sup­port­ive of me.

“We’re re­ally happy. Mar­riage and an­other baby is some time in the fu­ture but at the mo­ment I’m busy.”

Kristina quit Strictly last year to start her fam­ily but she is now pre­par­ing for new show Dance to the Mu­sic, a tour start­ing in Jan­uary.

And she is de­lighted to be re­turn­ing to the stage along­side for­mer Strictly dancer Robin Wind­sor and X Factor star Chris Maloney.

She said: “With my tour, I wanted to create a show like Strictly, ap­peal­ing to ev­ery gen­er­a­tion. We have the evo­lu­tion of dance from the 20s.

“They can watch ev­ery­thing from Charleston to break­danc­ing.”
