Inside Ola Jordan and James’ two-year struggle for a baby and 50/50 IVF chance

Ola Jordan and her husband James struggled to have a baby for two years.

Over the weekend, the former Strictly Come Dancing couple were delighted to welcome their first baby girl into the world following their IVF journey.

They have yet to reveal her baby name but Ola reassured her fans, "She's here and she's perfect."

The happy news comes after Ola had laid bare her heartache for the world to see.

Previously, she admitted she thought falling pregnant would happen naturally when she was ready to take a break from her high-flying dance career.

The dancer lamented she had hoped to be able to give her husband a baby as he was "desperate" to become a dad.

It was two years of struggling to conceive for the couple before they turned to IVF for help.

She told Hello! magazine : "I would love to be a mum with all my heart and I just thought it would happen naturally.

"James is also desperate to have babies and I just wish it could have happened by now. That’s the one gift I would love to give him.

"I guess I just thought, like most women, that I could choose when the time was right for me; that I could have my career and then have a baby when it felt right. But for us it just hasn’t happened like that."

Doctors warned Ola she only had a 50/50 chance she would get pregnant.

They went public with their fertility struggles because women's bellies look swollen and rounded before they actually fall pregnant.

But Ola miraculously got pregnant after her first round of IVF treatment last June.

During a Loose Women appearance, Ola shared IVF was more "mentally" tiring than physically exhausting.

She said: "It’s really hard mentally more than physically. The injections didn’t bother me. The whole waiting game…"

The professional dancer broke down in tears when she was finally pregnant.

Left speechless by the test, she recalled how she waited for James to come home so she could pass him the positive pregnancy stick.

She elaborated: "I cried, I was over the moon. The thing is with IVF, because we couldn’t get pregnant for a long time, you don’t believe it.

"You’re like is it OK, is it normal. I waited for him to get home and I gave him the test because I couldn’t actually tell him. I couldn’t say it, I was so upset, so happy."
