Janette Manrara has announced she is expecting her first baby with husband Aljaz Skorjanec after the couple struggled to get pregnant. The married couple, who have both quit Strictly Come Dancing’s main BBC show, will soon be expecting their new arrival.

Janette, 39, revealed the couple underwent IVF treatment as they opened up about their bundle of joy in a new interview.

The couple have admittedly been trying for some time to get pregnant and opted to use IVF as a last resort.

Janette and Aljaz have given fans a behind the scenes look as they detailed all in a new interview with HELLO! magazine.

Addressing their pregnancy struggles, Janette said: “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.”

“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.”

The on-screen star, who presents Strictly: It Takes Two, admitted she quit the dance show so that the couple could try for a baby.

She added: “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.'”

The BBC presenter admitted she broke the news to her doctor before telling her husband Aljaz she was expecting.

Speaking about the moment she shared the positive pregnancy test with her beau, the couple were in tears and hugged each other.

Janette also recalled their 12-week scan, saying she was “overwhelmed” with emotion.

She added to the publication: “There really was a little human being growing inside me. I didn’t realise how much they moved; the baby was literally flipping about.”
