Janette Manrara is excitedly counting down the days until the arrival of her first baby with her husband, Aljaz Skorjanec, and she is bringing her fans along for the ride. 

The former Strictly Come Dancing pro took to her Instagram Stories on Friday to share a heartwarming update as she unwrapped adorable baby gifts from "some very special ladies" – and they are possibly the cutest things we've ever seen. See for yourself in the video below.

Janette appeared overcome with emotion as she showed off the personalised bodysuits, especially the one that featured her "favourite quote" from Walt Disney. 

Earlier this week, Janette shared a sweet update on her baby bump, revealing it has gotten bigger in the last month.

The mum-to-be took to her Instagram Stories to fill in her fans on how her and Aljaz's house move is going when she zoomed in on her baby bump and cradled it to show off just how much "bigger" it had gotten. 

Janette and Aljaz have recently swapped their London apartment for a house in Cheshire and are rushing to finish the move before the baby comes in September. 

Speaking exclusively to HELLO! about the moment they found out about the pregnancy, Aljaz said: "I was beside myself. I feel like I've been thinking and dreaming about that moment for so long. 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."

 Becoming parents has always been on the agenda for the dancing duo, who previously opened up to HELLO! about their desires to start a family. 

Janette said: "We love kids and family is really important to us, so fingers crossed, if all goes well, we will have children at some point. It's something we've talked about a lot and we both want in the future, so we just can't wait for when that time comes."
