Helen Skelton’s ex Richie Myler gives glimpse at pregnant girlfriend’s baby shower

Rugby player Richie Myler, who is the ex-husband of Strictly Come Dancing finalist Helen Skelton, has given his 19.9k Instagram followers a glimpse at his pregnant girlfriend Stephanie Thirkill's baby shower.

Richie, 32, took to his Instagram Story, where he shared a snap of a rather lavish cake, which featured a number of decorations, including flowers, a teddy bear and a dog.

Lettering on the cake read: "Steph's baby shower".

The baby shower comes just days after Richie shared a loved-up snap with Stephanie, 32, in which she showcased her blossoming baby bump. Richie simply captioned the photo with a red heart emoji.

Richie recently re-instated his Instagram account, after he previously set it to private and later deactivated it after receiving a torrent of online abuse.

At the time he wrote: "I’ve decided to put my profile private from now on. If you are on here to share my photos or stories of me and my life maliciously to other people or waste your time sending me abusive messages please just unfollow me."

"I'm going to start removing people from my account one by one, so if you are a genuine rugby fan and I accidentally remove you I apologise in advance and will accept you back! Thank you Richie."

He later opted to delete the account entirely, but has since re-activated it and kept his page public.

Helen and Richie confirmed the news of their split in April last year just four months after welcoming their third child together.

Taking to Instagram, Helen wrote at the time: "Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple. He has left the family home. We will be doing our best to co parent our small children."

Stephanie and Richie were first rumoured to be romantically involved last summer, with reports of their now-confirmed pregnancy surfacing in October.

As Richie moves on with Stephanie, Helen is said to be growing close to Strictly's Vito Coppola after "bonding on tour".

Speaking to The Mirror, a source said: “Helen and Vito were good friends during Strictly, but really bonded on tour. There were two buses for the cast – the party bus and the quiet bus."

Her link with Italian Vito – who made the final with singer-songwriter Fleur East – is said to have caught the attention of fellow stars behind the scenes, with the pair reportedly enjoying "casual" dates.
