Remember former Strictly Come Dancing star Aliona Kavanagh?


Formerly Aliona Vilani, the dancing pro won the 2015 series of the BBC’s smash hit ballroom show alongside The Wanted’s Jay McGuiness, and the 2011 competition with McFly’s Harry Judd.

Well, the 32-year-old has just announced some very happy news… she and her husband Vincent are expecting their 1st baby!

Aliona shared the news with her 215k followers on Twitter, writing:

“Just want to share our amazing news! Vin & I are pregnant and we are sooo excited to have our little miracle!!! ?????”

She also gave fans a glimpse of her soon-to-be bump with a nature-themed shot - in which she rests against a tree in the woods, as her husband kneels down to kiss her stomach.

We’re not the only ones sending our congrats… it seems Aliona’s former dancing partner Jay is also thrilled by the news.

The former boybander and Strictly champion shared his (cheeky) well wishes on Twitter.

“Massive baby-congrats to Vin and @AlionaVilani, I'm so, so happy for you both! (Fingers crossed for Dads voice and Mums moves) ❤️ ” he wrote.
