Rachel Riley has joked about her 'wild' 36th birthday that she spent with her family.

.

The Countdown star took to Instagram to post a sweet snap along with her two daughters as she enjoyed her birthday bash.

She shared a photo of herself holding her new baby Noa and her toddler Maven.

The 36 year old smiled from ear to ear as she captioned the post: "Well 36 was a WILD birthday raving it up with the toddler in an empty ramen house was the highlight!

"Loved so many lovely messages, a chilled one with the family was just what the doctor ordered before back to work next week! Thanks for all the well wishes."

Fans rushed to the comments to wish the celeb a happy birthday.

A third person said: "Happy belated birthday Rachel."

A fourth follower commented: "Happy birthday day rachel have a good one."

Rachel recently announced the arrival of her second daughter with an Instagram post.

She posted a series of snaps of the new little one as she wrote: "We have some news…! Introducing Pasha’s newest dance partner – baby Noa was finally born, 15 days after her due date, late on Friday night to the sound of fireworks!

"She’s totally adorable and her big sister Maven has already tried welcoming her to the world by offering Oatly and pickles, we think that’s a good sign."

Rachel added: "Massive thanks to the wonderful home birth midwives team and my doula who looked after us all so well.

"Ps thanks too to my namesake @rachelrileyuk for the lovely rainbow baby clothes for our gorgeous rainbow baby. Our family feels complete now she’s here."

The star revealed that baby Noa is a rainbow baby, meaning she is a baby born following a miscarriage.

April 2021 saw Rachel reveal she was expecting her second child in true Countdown style.

She shared a pic of the iconic Countdown board with the anagram 'fittriley' on it, asking her followers to decode the puzzle which really spelled 'fertility'.

Along with the challenge, Rachel gave the clue 'And your clue is… Riley had this to thank for the reason her clothes no longer fit her… And it'll only get worse till Autumn!'

But it seems Pasha Kovalev was just as excited as his wife when he told Hello! : "Before Maven was born, I couldn't picture having one baby, and now I can't picture having two.

"But when I hold my second child for the first time, probably with Maven next to me, I'm sure I will feel a wide range of emotions that I could never have imagined."

He went on to say the pair wanted to have another child close to Maven so they ended up not having too much of an age gap between them.
