He wrote: "I am an UNCLE!!! Again!! Welcome little Tia. I can't wait to meet you. I hope soon," along with blue love heart emojis.

The new arrival is the second child born to Aljaz's sister, Lara. She welcomed daughter Zala in October 2018 – and Aljaz has been completely devoted to the little girl.

"We always wanted to have a baby, but 2020 has definitely made me say to myself: 'You know what, it's never going to be the perfect time but it's always going to be the right time,'" Janette admitted.

Aljaz and Janette now hope to start a family of their own

"As a woman who's a dancer, my body is my job so it's scary to make that decision about the perfect time to start a family. I always thought there would be a perfect month and year, but what 2020 has made me realise is that perfect time is never going to come along.

"We're definitely ready to be parents so we will see when that moment comes – you can't plan it. 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."
