The happy news comes two weeks after Aljaz and Janette celebrated their third wedding anniversary. They uploaded never-before-seen images from their nuptials, which took place on three separate occasions in three different countries.

Aljaz has previously spoken to HELLO! about his bond with Zala and his desire to become a dad, saying: "She's beautiful, a little angel. I'm obsessed with kids… If someone had told me five years ago that my little sister was going to have a baby before me, I wouldn't have believed them. But I feel everything comes at the right time when it's supposed to come."

The Strictly stars have been married for three years

Aljaz's wife Janette is also keen on having a family sometime in the future. Whilst speaking to good friend Gorka Marquez on an Instagram live back in May, she jokingly admitted that she and Aljaz were going to have a baby. "Aljaz and I are going to have a baby and move to Manchester," she told the Strictly dancer, before telling him that they could then raise their children together. "That's it. Done," she added.
