James Jordan and wife of 17 years, Ola Jordan, became parents in February, revealing the exciting news of their daughter Ella’s arrival. However, the former Strictly Come Dancing stars have faced a tricky time in the weeks that followed, as the country went into lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The 41-year-old detailed a “scary” situation they found themselves in, as some supermarkets struggled to refill their stock.
The pair spoke out in their first Strictly Parenting column for HELLO!, as Ola, 37, addressed her breast-feeding upset.
“I love to breastfeed and I was really set on breastfeeding entirely,” the Polish dancer started. “But unfortunately, I’m just not making enough.
“I found it really hard because I really wanted to breastfeed her fully. And to make matters worse, we have been running out of milk as well.”

The family had to rely on a pal’s help in order to get hold of what they needed, with Ola remarking on her worries about their little one’s lack of understanding.
She added: “It doesn’t matter about us – we can go without anything, we can go without food but she can’t, she doesn’t understand.”

James went on to discuss the “amazing” actions of a loved one left him feeling “touched”.
He continued: “That has been quite scary when you go into a shop and one time I went to five different shops and there was no formula at all anywhere.
Director and choreographer Jonny Bowles wrote: “Thank you to all for your love and kind wishes. Sadly last night I lost my best friend. I got permission to hold her hand the whole day but she couldn’t fight the sepsis in her lungs. I’m devastated.”
James tweeted him, saying: “Horrendous times my friend. Sending my love and thoughts are with you.”
Meanwhile, it came just hours James expressed his own heartbreak at being unable to visit his father, who had been rushed to hospital after suffering another stroke.
He took to Twitter on Sunday night to announce the sad news that his dad had been admitted again, almost a month after the first one in March.
