Plenty of fans and friends flooded the comments section to heap praise on Joe, including Dianne who showed her support with a series of love-heart emojis. 

Joe and Dianne struck up a romance in 2018 after they were partnered up on the BBC ballroom dance show. The couple finished as runner-ups, and their romance has gone from strength to strength ever since. While babies might not be on the cards for the couple soon due to their busy schedules, Dianne has previously told HELLO! that she would like at least two children. "I think two," she said. "I always thought I was going to have twins though. If I have twins, then three but if I don't have twins then two."
