Janette Manrara and Alijaz Skorjanec have dropped surprise hints at a second baby – just three months after welcoming their daughter Lyra Rose.  

The former Strictly Come Dancing pros announced in July that they had welcomed baby Lyra, at London’s Portland Hospital weighing 7lb 7oz. 

Alijaz, 33, is currently taking a career break while Janette, 39, is hosting the spin-off show Strictly: It Takes Two with Fleur East. 

But the couple showed that they are already quickly adapting to life as parents, with Alijaz hinting already that it may not be long before baby number two arrives. 

He said: ‘I can’t wait to do daddy daycare – it’s my favourite job ever. I have waited to be a dad for so long and I feel very lucky to be able to spend so much time with my daughter.’

Sweet: The long-term couple have shown they are already adapting well to becoming parents

‘I’m really looking forward to the future and thinking about our second child,’ he teased, in an interview with Hello! Magazine. 

‘Janette is still recovering but I’m planning to keep the bottles just in case.’ 

The couple are preparing to go on tour with their new Christmas show Dancing In A Winter Wonderland, with Lyra joining them on their travels. 

In July Janette and Alijaz took to Instagram to announce the happy news that they had welcomed a baby girl. 

Janette shared a sweet black-and-white photograph of herself lying in hospital and cradling her newborn daughter while Aljaz stood over her and smiled. 

In an accompanying caption, Janette confirmed her daughter’s adorable name as she celebrated her new arrival.

She simply penned: ‘Lyra Rose Skorjanec. July 28, 2023,’ along with an emoji of a red rose.

They had announced the pregnancy back in February, after struggling to conceive for more than two years.

Adorable: Janette then kept fans up to date with her pregnancy and was sweetly surprised with a Winnie-the-Pooh-themed baby shower earlier this month 

During her pregnancy, Janette told Closer: ‘He’s wanted to be a dad since day one and he’s so obsessed, he would breastfeed the baby if he could!

He wants to be a co-parent 100 percent and we’ll be a real team.’

The dancer also revealed how her husband sends her memes of baby tips and advice he’s found online, adding: ‘As a working mum, having someone like that on your side is such a breath of fresh air!’ 

She previously said of Aljaz: ‘The most surprising thing for me, from Aljaž is just the level of support he’s shown throughout this whole pregnancy.’

‘I knew he always wanted to be a Father; I felt in my heart that I knew he was always going to be an amazing Dad, but to see it come to life with his excitement and his curiosity and his ability to really just take care of me is amazing.’

She added: ‘He doesn’t let me lift a feather! He is just the most incredible husband and it’s so nice to see how involved he wants to be and he wants to know about everything happening to me and my body.

‘I think as a woman it’s so comforting to know that I have a real partner in this whole process, and that he’s with me all the way. I love that.’

She continued: ‘It’s just the excitement of being a family, finally. We’ve known for a long time that we’ve been wanting to be parents, and now we have this little miracle coming, our lives are going to completely change forever once it arrives.

Romance: Janette and Aljaz first met back in 2010 in London through their careers as professional dancers and went on to tie the knot in 2017  

‘To know that, again, we have each other and we’re doing it as a team, and hopefully we create a wonderful human being, that will be beautiful for our planet.

‘Just the excitement of being in a new home as a new family… all of it really! I’m just super happy that this is even happening.’

The couple met in 2010 when performing in Burn The Floor and tied the knot in 2017. 

Alijaz has joked in the past that he was ready to propose after five hours. 

Janette previously credited Strictly for helping them to stay together, as it meant they both lived in London rather than having to do long-distance between Slovenia and Los Angeles.
