Pregnant Strictly star Janette Manrara shows off growing baby bump as she appears on ITV with Aljaz Skorjanec | The Sun

PREGNANT former Strictly star Janette Manrara proudly showed off her baby bump on today's Lorraine.

The 39-year-old dancer beamed as husband Aljaz Skorjanec, 33, caressed her stomach as they posed for pictures after appearing on the ITV Daytime show.

Janette looked radiant in a tight-fitting grey sleeveless dress, while Aljaz was cool in a camel shacket and white shirt.

During the show, It Takes Two presenter Janette joked Aljaz was struggling with pregnancy side effects more than she is.

She said: "He's actually been sick more than I have, we really are pregnant together.

"I'm feeling good, I’ve been so lucky with this pregnancy that it’s been so good, we’ve just been to the doctor and everything is all good."

The couple announced their pregnancy earlier this month after trying to conceive for two years.

Speaking today, Janette said: "The only people we told at first was our family and that was on Christmas Day, we had to.

"I did the Strictly Live Tour, that was tough to keep in because obviously we’re on stage and we’re out all the time, so I wore this big yellow dress to try and keep it in but people were suspicious, they kept asking why I wasn't having a glass of wine."

Dad-to-be Aljaz is swotting up so he can be the best parent possible. He said: "It’s been a really interesting process so far, I’m just amazed by it so far and you want to do so much research on everything and am so excited."

The couple had been considering IVF as an option to start a family before conceiving naturally.

Janette previously told HELLO! magazine: "For the past couple of years we hadn’t been using protection but nothing was happening, so we thought IVF was the next best thing for us to do," said Janette.

"I turn 40 later this year and the NHS offers really good services to women under 40.

"The doctor said that as soon as I got my period we would start injections, but my period never came.

"I know that IVF can be really strenuous on a woman’s body and there is no guarantee it will work, so to know that this little miracle just came from a wonderful night we had together is amazing.

"I think the baby decided to make Mum and Dad panic a bit before saying, ‘ok, fine, I’m coming up now.'"

Janette joined Strictly in 2013, but left in 2021. Meanwhile Aljaž became a professional dancer in 2013 and quit the BBC show last year.

The popular couple got engaged in 2015 and married on July, 15, 2017.
