Kimberley outside ITV today.

She said on today's ITV's This Morning: "I am, yeah. I'm going to take his name and be Kimberley Scott. I want us to be a family and people keep saying to me 'You can't do that'... but I don't think it's that big of a deal, I think I can. I want us to be a family and I'd like us to have the same name."

Former Strictly star Kimberley and Justin became engaged in November 2014, with Kimberley revealing: "Justin was holding [our son] Bobby in one arm and dropped down to one knee…"

Their first son, Bobby, arrived in September last year.

Kimberley and Justin have been together for more than ten years. Justin popped the question in the hospital just after Kimberley had given birth.
