Ore Oduba shares baby snap while paying tribute to own mother

The ex-Strictly Come Dancing champion became father to baby Roman in January.

Ore Oduba has posted a snap of his baby – in a tribute to the TV presenter’s own parents.

The ex-Strictly Come Dancing champion, 32, became father to baby Roman in January.

The snap shows fans the day that Roman arrived home.

It shows Oduba holding his newborn, while the Strictly star stands alongside his own mother.

“Three generations of Oduba, on the day the newest one came home. Now I can appreciate everything my parents did for us infinitely more than before,” he wrote on Instagram.

“So want to wish my mum the happiest birthday and the biggest thank you ever. Mum, you’re the greatest,” he wrote.

Oduba, recently announced as host of new BBC One game show Hardball, paid tribute to wife Portia when he said the couple had become first-time parents earlier this year.

“Cannot find the words to describe this feeling… Just thank you God for our little blessing,” he wrote on Instagram.

“His mum is simply my hero. 09.01.18 the best day in our tiny family’s life. Roman, you are our world… and the world is all yours.”
