In a statement released yesterday the former Strictly Come Dancing winner of 2007, and later judge, announced that with her dancer boyfriend Azuka Ononye they were to have their first baby.
Alesha Dixon and her partner Azuka Ononye are delighted to announce that they are expecting their first child later this year.
Alesha and Azuka are looking forward to this happy chapter in their lives and would request privacy to enjoy this happy and most important event. – Statement from Dixon’s PR.
Dixon met Ononye, a backing dancer, in 2006 when they worked on a project together. The ITV personality was previously married to So Solid Crew member Michael Harvey Jnr. They married in 2005 however Dixon filed for divorce a little over a year later when it was reported Harvey had been having an affair.
Earlier this month Alesha, an ambassador for MacMillian Cancer Care, told The Sun newspaper that she had no ambition to join fellow ITV talent contest The X Factor despite media mogul, and talent show boss, Simon Cowell suggesting she’d be great as a judge.
I’ve been told by someone that I’d be very good on The X Factor panel… Simon. But I’m very happy as I am for the moment, thank you. My life is really good, and I’m just enjoying it. – Alesha Dixon
