Dressage superstar Charlotte Dujardin shared the precious moment her newborn baby girl met her dancer partner Valegro for the first time.

Charlotte gave birth to Isabella Rose last week (6 March) and it didn’t take long for the legendary rider to introduce her new daughter to her treasured equine companion.

Valegro (Blueberry) posed for the camera with pricked ears as Charlotte proudly held Isabella outside his stable door.

“All I can say Isabella, is that this horse changed my life, as you now have, and I have so much love for you both and these precious times,” she said.

Baby Isabella was born to proud new parents Charlotte and her fiance Dean on 6 March at 9.48am.

“[She] is already surrounded by immense love and excitement from Charlotte, Dean and their families,” a spokesman for Charlotte said upon sharing the good news.
