Addressing her followers, she said: "Happy Monday. It's getting big. I mean… I can't believe it. Not long left now. Working on my Disney 100 script today. So excited for the show – it's going to be magical, as all things Disney are."

She went on to say: "Really now starting to think… It's not long before the baby arrives and I don't know if I have everything I need. I think I've been a little too cool about it, you know. Like, 'No it will be fine, I'll take my time getting everything,' and now I'm like AH! It's not long."

Indeed, the duo traded their London pad for a new home in Cheshire in part because of how green the local area is.

Speaking exclusively to HELLO! magazine, Aljaz explained: "It's something both of us have craved for a while. The pace of life in London is too fast and we couldn't see us functioning here as a family. It’s so green up north, it reminds me of Slovenia."

Beyond this, the lovebirds opted to move closer to their fellow Strictly friends Gemma Atkinson and Gorka Marquez. The couple live in nearby Manchester and are set to welcome their second baby later this year.

For Janette and Aljaz, becoming first-time parents has been a bittersweet experience. In an exclusive interview with HELLO!, the duo revealed how they explored IVF treatment after they struggled to fall pregnant naturally.

Describing the moment he found out about Janette's baby joy, Aljaz gushed: "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."
