Aliona quit Strictly in 2015, following win with Jay McGuinness.

Aliona and Vincent's baby news comes two years after they married in 2014. Last year, Aliona had quit Strictly Come Dancing, after featuring on thirteen series of the show, with reports claiming her reasons were so she could start a family.

A source told The Sun: "Aliona loves children and is ready to have a family. As much as she loves Strictly she doesn't want to put her plans for a baby on hold any more. They are going to start trying straight away."

Aliona had won Strictly in 2015 with The Wanted star Jay McGuinness and shortly after the final aired, she announced her exit: "Going into this Strictly Come Dancing series 13, I decided that no matter what would happen, it will be my last one."

Aliona - who has won the competition before with McFly's Harry Judd - then credited her last series to be the best one she has experienced from her seven years on the show.
