Pregnant Rachel Riley cuddles daughter Maven, 16 months, in toddler’s impressive playroom as she enjoys downtime amid ongoing libel case
She is currently engaged in a lawsuit with ex-Jeremy Corbyn assistant Laura Murray over a 2019 tweet by Laura, 32, who accused the Countdown star of suggesting that the former Labor leader was a Nazi who “ deserves to be violent. to be attacked ‘.
But pregnant Rachel Riley was able to take her mind off the ongoing lawsuit on Thursday as she enjoyed some down time with her 16-month-old daughter Maven in the little girl’s impressive playroom.
Rachel, 35 – who shares Maven with husband Pasha Kovalev – took to Instagram to share a photo of herself and Maven, sitting on a rocking horse and explaining to fans that she and Pasha, 41, had a segment with their daughter Filmed for the BBC’s children’s program, Tiny Happy People.

Rachel dressed her daughter in a rainbow-colored cardigan for the fun snap, and Rachel – wearing a lilac sweater and black pants – appeared cheerfully leaning against her firstborn.
With her shiny blonde hair worn loose and straight, doting mom Rachel smiled at the camera as she encouraged her fans to tune in to the Friday episode of the BBC show.
Behind the pair, Maven’s toys were visible, including a lion teddy bear, pram and counting pads.
Rachel and Laura’s feud began after a Brexiteer hit an egg on Mr. Corbyn’s head on March 3, 2019 while visiting Finsbury Park Mosque in North London.

Rachel had shared a message from Guardian columnist Owen Jones who, when an egg was thrown at former BNP president Nick Griffin, remarked, “ I think good life advice is: if you don’t want to throw eggs at you, don’t be a Nazi ‘.
But Laura, formerly a senior assistant to Mr Corbyn, replied to Rachel herself, describing her as ‘dangerous’ and ‘stupid’ and accusing her of saying the Islington North MP deserved to be ‘violently attacked’.
The TV host – who told the court that resharing Jones’ post was’ sarcastic ‘- claims that Laura’s tweet started a’ pile up ‘on Twitter, leading to sleepless nights and causing people to ask her to firing her from Channel 4.
Elsewhere, Rachel and Pasha announced last month that they are expecting their second child.
After sharing the news in April, Rachel also posted two selfies from Countdown’s set that showed off her baby bump.

In the caption to her post, Rachel joked that she no longer had to hold her stomach in as she wrote, “Great to be able to breathe again at work! Don’t hold your stomach anymore, pfff. ‘
The math guru met Pasha while attending Strictly Together in 2013, and they were married six years later at a surprise ceremony in Las Vegas just weeks after they announced they were going to be parents.
Rachel and Pasha welcomed their first child, daughter Maven Aria, in December 2019, with the star announcing her arrival after the toddler was two weeks late.
