Strictly’s Aljaž Škorjanec reveals he’s feeling broody and wants to start a family

It seems that it's all go on the baby front in the Strictly Come Dancing family. 

Pro dancers Gorka Marquez and Pasha Kovalev are both getting ready to become first-time dads. 

And fellow pro Aljaž Škorjanec is feeling the baby fever too.

The 29-year-old appeared on This Morning with fellow dancers Gorka and Giovanni Pernice.

He said, ''I’ve always felt very broody for the last 10 years.''

He continued, ''I’ve always wanted kids but it’s just never [happened yet]. We’ll see what happens. 50 percent is down to me.''

Aljaž married fellow Strictly pro dancer Janette Manrara in 2017 after seven years together. 

This isn't the first time Aljaz has spoken about his desire to start a family.

When appearing on  Lorraine, Janette said, ''Especially as a woman, it's a big decision, for me whenever we do decide to have a child. We talk about it all the time. We are definitely going to have children.''

She also told HELLO!, ''It's never going to be the perfect time to have a baby but we do talk about it a lot and we are very much looking forward to becoming a mum and dad.''

She added, ''So it's definitely going to happen. When we don't know, we'll see. We're kind of taking it slowly. A dancer's career can be quite short, especially when you reach a certain level, and work is going so good for us at the moment that is the priority."

We can't wait for them to become parents - we know they would make fantastic ones and sure, they will be in good company with all the other Strictly babies.
