Strictly star Katya Jones breaks her silence on ex Neil Jones’ baby news

Huge congrats to the pair of them!

Strictly Come Dancing star Katya Jones has broken her silence following the news that her ex Neil Jones is expecting a baby with Love Island’s Chyna Mills.

On Sunday, the dancing pro and the Love Island bombshell revealed they were engaged and confirmed they were expecting their first child together.

Sharing the news with Hello! Magazine, Chyna said: “At first, I thought he was joking because we play jokes on each other all the time.

“Then Neil was like: ‘Chyna, so is it a yes or no?’ because a few minutes had passed and he was still on one knee. I was like: ‘Yeah!’

“After the baby news, we were on cloud nine – and now this. It still doesn’t feel real.”

Following their huge announcement, Neil’s ex-wife and fellow Strictly dancer Katya shared her feelings on the news.

The couple were married for six years and split in 2019.

Taking to Instagram stories, Katya re-shared the couple’s post and wrote: “So happy for these two! @mr_njonesofficial You deserve all the happiness.”

Neil and Chyna first started dating seven months ago following Chyna’s stint on Love Island in 2022 where she entered during the Casa Amor week.

Now, she is 13 weeks pregnant and the pair are set to welcome their first child together in autumn.

After sharing their big news, many of Neil’s Strictly c0-stars took to the comments on Instagram to congratulate the couple.

Janette Manrara wrote: “Boom. Congratulations Daddy Neil.”

Amy Dowden added: “What fabulous news! So happy for you both.”

Nikita Kuzmin said: “Wooowwww! Congratulations.”
