Inside Neil Jones and Chyna Mills first Christmas as parents

After welcoming baby daughter Havana back in October, Strictly Come Dancing professional Neil Jones and his Love Island fiancée Chyna Mills are looking forward to their first Christmas together as a family.

Chatting exclusively with OK! at Action For Children's Starry Night Gala, the dancer expressed his joy for the festive season.

“I’m so looking forward to Christmas as a dad – it’ll be different, but I love it,” he said. “I’ve always been family-oriented, so I’ll really enjoy it.”

After a busy year for the couple, he said that Christmas will be a time to unwind while telling us about his tradition of going on holiday over the period each year. And while Havana may only be months old, Neil and Chyna are keen to continue this tradition.

“Our plans for Christmas aren’t sorted yet,” he said. “Normally, I go abroad because my thing is to finish Strictly and then go on the tour in the new year – so if I don’t go away in between, I don’t have time.

“Chyna and I haven’t decided where we’ll go, but I think it’s the best time to take Havana away when she’s this small. They say to start them young!”

It's no wonder Neil is hoping for a break, as December is a busy time for the professionals of Strictly – with a Christmas special show shortly following the main series.

This year, he will be taking centre stage with his celebrity partner, Waterloo Road actress Tillie Amartey. Speaking to OK! he shared that Tillie and her family have already been getting to know his baby daughter. 

“Tillie’s mum came to babysit Havana the other day, so everyone is really helping out,” said Neil.

Looking ahead to 2024 after a fantastic 2023, Neil teases a few projects in the pipeline – but for him fatherhood comes first. 

“There are quite a few projects I need to finish in the new year. We had less time this year, as we were focused on the pregnancy and Havana,” he said. “Chyna has some projects coming up too but, for us, it’s mainly about watching Havana grow. I want to try to be there as much as I can."
