James Jordan and Ola Jordan speak out on ‘hard’ family decision: ‘Struggling to let go’

James Jordan, 42, and Ola Jordan, 37, have admitted they are going to “miss” their six-month-old baby daughter Ella after making the decision to move her into her own bedroom. The former Strictly Come Dancing professionals had been sharing their room with the little one, who slept in a cot beside their bed.

Although the couple insisted they are ready to mark Ella’s latest milestone, Ola divulged they are “struggling to let go”.

The dancer said: “We’re trying to let go, so she’s going to go in her own bed.”

She added: “When she goes into the big bed in her room I’m going to miss her! 

“I think we’re struggling to let go and put her in her own room.”

Opening up about the big step, Ola continued: “I think it’s time, I think the bed she’s in now is getting too small. 

“I think she might sleep better in her own room by herself but I have to admit, the smiles in the morning when she wakes up and looks across – and sometimes when she reaches out to get me – I’m just going to miss that! 

“It’s a big thing for me I feel.” 

James agreed: “It’s another step moving her into her own room.”


The star revealed the couple went through a “really stressful time” and added he would have been “devastated” if they “missed the boat”.

James told The Sun: “It’s a long process, a big waiting game and a really stressful time. We were mega-fortunate that it happened for the first time.”

He went on to admit he feels for other couples who have to go through the process numerous times.

“Some people who have been in contact with us have done it eight, ten, 12 times and it’s been unsuccessful. It must be heartbreaking,” James continued.
