Janette Manrara has shared a string of precious new images of her baby daughter Lyra Rose - and she looks every inch her dad Aljaz Skorjanec's double.

In the snapshots, which were shared to Instagram on Monday, little Lyra is pictured bonding with two of Janette's friends who produce dance show Burn the Floor - the very show which brought Janette and Aljaz together.

The youngster looked so sweet in the images rocking a pretty pink summer dress complete with a peter pan collar and a pair of patent white shoes. For an added dose of cuteness, the tot also sported a large white bow in her hair.

"Lyra got to meet @mariamedcalf and Harley who are the producers of @burnthefloorofficial and most probably the biggest reason that @aljazskorjanec and I met! Haha! Drinks, Sunday Roast, & cuddles all afternoon. It was perfect."

In the comments section, Janette's fans and friends were quick to point out Lyra's uncanny resemblance to her famous father. Stunned by their similarity, one remarked: "She's growing up so quickly, what a sweetie and yes she does look like her daddy", while a second noted: "So like her daddy" and a third added: "Beautiful photos, she's definitely her daddy's double."

He told us: "We were preparing for IVF mentally and physically and then it was just a relief to finally have that positive test. I have so much respect for any parent that goes through IVF, not just for what it puts them through physically but mentally too."

Janette added: "I know that IVF can be really strenuous on a woman’s body and there is no guarantee it will work, so to know that this little miracle just came from a wonderful night we had together is amazing. I think the baby decided to make Mum and Dad panic a bit before saying, 'Ok, fine, I'm coming up now.'"
