Janette Manrara and Aljaz Skorjanec plan to start a family one day.

The "Strictly Come Dancing" professionals are making their dancing careers their "priority" for the time being, but they would love to have a baby when the time is right.

Janette told the latest issue of HELLO! magazine: "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.

"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."

Aljaz, 28, was amazed that his younger sister Lara had a child before him, after she welcomed her daughter Zala into the world three months ago.

He said: "If someone had told me five years ago that my little sister was going to have a baby before me I wouldn't have believed it, but I feel like everything comes at the right time when it's supposed to come."

The couple had three wedding ceremonies in 2017, in London, Miami and Slovenia, where Aljaz is from.

Janette had every little girl's dream wedding, as she walked down the aisle to a song from the Disney movie "Cinderella".

On finding her own "Prince Charming", the 35-year-old beauty gushed: "Aljaz makes me smile, he makes me laugh, he makes me happy and he makes me feel like a princess.

"I grew up in Miami and I've been to Disneyworld 42 times. On our wedding day I walked down the aisle to a song from Cinderella because I always say I found my Prince Charming."

It was "love at first sight" for Aljaz, who told Janette he would marry her one day and begged her to go out with him.

He recalled: "I was the one that fell in love at first sight and I had to beg her to go out with me.

"Then, as soon as we started spending time together, it was obvious we were soul mates."

Janette added: "I remember very clearly, the first time we went out with the cast of the show, Aljaz came up to me and said "I'm going to marry you someday".

"I said, "OK, sure". I was like, he's so handsome, he's so charming; he can't be real.

"So I never really believed it. Then, when I gave him a chance and we went on our first date almost a year later, I never came back."
