Dianne shared the stunning look to Instagram

It's been an exciting time for the 32-year-old, whose brother and sister-in-law recently welcomed their baby daughter Zofia, making Dianne an auntie for the first time.

Dianne's boyfriend, Joe Sugg, who she met when they were partnered on the BBC show, also became a first-time uncle when his sister Zoe gave birth to baby Ottilie at the end of last month.

However, the redheaded Aussie soon confirmed to a curious fan on social media that she was not expecting a baby herself, saying: "I get this question a lot. There is a lot of baby joy because we have two new beautiful nieces in the family."
