Aljaz also shared an adorable photo of his nieces to social media

"We will be beside ourselves and Aljaz will be the best dad. He is such a wonderful man and I'm so lucky to have him."

For now, the dancer is a proud uncle and has often expressed how much he misses his family while in the UK, especially during lockdown when he wasn't able to travel to Slovenia to see them.

On Tuesday, the 31-year-old could be seen breaking down in tears in an emotional video shot by his wife as he reunited with his sister Lara after two years.

The doting uncle also got the chance to see Zala and Tisa, who he met in person for the first time.

Aljaz and his family then went home for a good home-cooked lunch and time with his parents.

"Two years and a new baby niece later but cuddles and love all around for the next few weeks," wrote Janette as she shared the video to social media.
