Janette Manrara is currently enjoying some away time in Slovenia with husband Aljaz Skorjanec and his family ahead of the pair welcoming their first child.

The former Strictly Come Dancing professional has been sharing plenty of insights into her pregnancy journey, and in her latest post, she sweetly cradled her blossoming bump while wearing a grey woollen jumper and green skinny jeans. The photo captured the beauty of her European surroundings with an idyllic lake making up most of the background in front of an awe-inspiring forest scene.

In a touching caption, the mum-to-be wrote: "The best few days to rest and reset before coming back home to wait for the arrival of our little one. Our trip in Slovenia is not over yet, but this is our last night here in @chocolate_village_by_the_river and I am embracing every second of it one last time, until we come back again soon when it's 3 of us.

"Thank you for giving us serentity, peace, and beautiful views to unwind. And thank you to everyone here at #ChocolateVillageByTheRiver that looked after us so well. We have absolutely loved it."

Fans were thrilled with the snap, especially since Janette's baby bump had officially "popped", something noted by new mum Stacey Dooley who simply said: "She's popped!"

A second commented: "Wow - baby has just popped !!!! You look amazing and good luck with everything ….. can’t wait to see pics of baby," while a third shared: "A beautiful bump and a beautiful Mama. You look incredible."

Last week, Janette shared a heartwarming video documenting her and her husband's journey to Slovenia and Aljaz's emotional reunion with his mother, Nataša.

The caption read: "Surprise!! We planned a surprise visit to Slovenia to see @aljazskorjanec mom for her birthday today! So happy to see her reaction! We'll be here for a few days, enjoying a bit of a #babymoon and time with our nieces together before our own little family goes from 2…. to 3.
