Kevin Clifton opens up on wanting more children with Stacey Dooley

Strictly Come Dancing star Kevin Clifton has revealed his plans to have more children with his partner Stacey Dooley.

The two met while starring on the show together in 2018 and welcomed their first child back in January.

Now, following the birth of their daughter Minnie, Kevin has shared that he and Stacey would love “a little gang” of children.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, Kevin said: “Stacey’s already talking about Minnie needing a brother or a sister.

“I can see us having more kids if we’re lucky enough and it happens for us, but Minnie is a handful as it is at the moment!

“It’s the idea of them being a little gang and having each other’s backs.”

Explaining that he and his sister always have each other’s backs, he wants the same for his daughter.

Kevin recently spoke to HerFamily about how he manages raising a baby while also being on tour with Strictly Ballroom.

Stacey and their daughter, Minnie, join him at any chance they get, but that’s not always possible.

Like many new parents, Kevin has to travel for work and is away for days at a time, missing out on some special moments with his daughter.

Speaking to HerFamily, Kevin said the best advice he has for other parents in a similar position is to take as many photos and video as possible – and savour them.

“If I’m within touching distance of home than our commute and I get to see them all the time, sometimes they’ll come with me which is great,” Kevin said.

I’m 17 weeks in but I’m just winging it. But for me, I’m just constantly in touch in terms of face-timing them and stuff. I don’t want to miss anything.

“Just be on FaceTime, just keep spending each other clips. Stacey sends me clips of everything, my phone has become full of photos and videos of Minnie.”
