New father James posted a sweet photo of the infant's delicate feet in his hands, exclaiming, "I'm the happiest man in the world."
This is the couple's first child. James and Ola meet through dance competitions and were professional partners competing together before they married in 2003, and later both joined Strictly Come Dancing.
A year ago the couple had opened up about their decision to try IVF and their struggle to conceive, saying they had been trying naturally for two years.
"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," Ola said at the time. "But for us it just hasn't happened like that."
