Strictly Come Dancing icon Oti Mabuse has been in holiday mode and soaking up the sun with her little family.

The Dancing On Ice judge showed off her best moves while getting her fix of vitamin D on the beach in Mallorca with her baby girl.

Oti was spotted prancing around the sand as she twirled around with her young daughter strapped to her chest snugly.

The South African star, 33, was accompanied by a male friend and snapped away with the selfies on her phone.

Her husband, Marius LePure, who is in Mallorca for work, also briefly joined them.

Oti looked typically stylish in a lightweight shirt dress with a green and black pattern.

She wore her locks in braids, with her mini-me keeping cool in a white babygrow and cute hat.

Oti couldn’t have looked more besotted with her firstborn, smiling down at her while spinning around with her arms out.

It’s been a huge time for Strictly babies.

Not only is Oti fully settled into and bossing motherhood now, 2022 finalist Fleur East has been introducing her co-stars to her baby girl after giving birth just weeks ago.

Olympic medallist Iwan Thomas also welcomed his third son, but kept his arrival secret for a while, only announcing baby Bowie’s February birth in April.

As for Oti, the TV personality welcomed her daughter, who is now seven months, with her husband, 41, last October.

She has since documented several ups and downs as a new parent, asking her social media followers for advice and baring her soul in some emotional posts.

Recently, Oti admitted she’s ‘not ok’ in a frank moment of reflection about her daughter’s future.

Sharing a video on Instagram with tears in her eyes, she wrote: ‘Looking at myself on the train after I cried because the school near my house held an Easter parade for the kiddies and I already imagined my daughter moving out, going to study in university on another continent because she found out I tracked her on iPhone Find Me and wants independence.’

Adding a crying laughing emoji, she stated: ‘I’m not OK.’

On her page, she captioned the video: ‘The hormones are giving.’

Oti’s baby girl didn’t have the smoothest arrival into the world, with the Masked Dancer judge previously sharing details of her traumatic birth.

The little one – whose name hasn’t been revealed publicly – was ‘very premature’.

‘You see your child for two minutes and then they get taken away by a group of 10 midwives and doctors. That’s when things start to change and start to hit you,’ she recalled.

‘I think we didn’t hold her for about a week because she was still in an incubator with the wires, and with jaundice so she was under blue light. And she had infections because it turned out that I had sepsis,’ she added on Giovanna Fletcher’s podcast, Happy Mum Happy Baby.

Oti and Marius waited nine weeks to announce their daughter’s arrival.

They wanted to ‘take time for [themselves]’ before sharing her, given the ‘big shock’ of her ‘unexpected’ early birth.
