Rachel Riley counts on eight-month-old daughter Maven to support her favourite team Man Utd

RACHEL Riley can count on eight-month-old daughter Maven to support her favourite team Man United.

The Essex-born Countdown star, 34, dressed her little Red Devil in her own kit and posted: “No7 is ready for the match! Come on you reds.”

Rachel wore a plunging, printed red dress to cheer on the football club.

Rachel and pro dancer husband Pasha Kovakev, 40, welcomed their daughter last December.

They tied the knot in Las Vegas in June 2019.

The couple first met back in 2013 when they were partnered together on Strictly.

The Sun recently reported that the maths whizz worries girls like her daughter will grow up thinking they should not pursue a career in science or engineering because of outdated stereotypes.

A recent study found that girls are four times less likely to choose maths-based subjects at university than boys, despite showing a “higher degree of competence” for them at school.

Rachel said: “I want my daughter Maven to experience a life as equal as possible — and when it comes to ability, there is no reason why her gender should stand in her way.

“This recent research shows what we see time and time again in studies, the problem is with the stereotypes in society, not with the ability of girls.
