Strictly’s Janette Manrara shows off ‘real body 24 days after giving birth

Strictly Come Dancing star Janette Manrara confidently showed off her "real" post-pregnancy body just 24 days after giving birth to her daughter.

The professional dancer, 39, welcomed her first child – a baby girl called Lyra Rose Skorjanec with her husband, Aljaž Škorjanec, 33, on 28 July, 2023.

The pregnancy came as quite the surprise for the pair, who were just about to start their IVF journey before Janette fell pregnant.

The new parents have been keeping fans updated on their journey so far on Instagram, including Janette proudly showing off her body as she feels "confident and happy" in her skin, just 24 days after giving birth.

Taking to her Instagram stories the pro-dancer posed for a selfie in the mirror as she wore black underwear.

In the caption she openly wrote: "Day 24 post partum. Day 1 of slowly getting back on stage!

"Every single pregnancy & post partum journey is different. Feeling confident and happy in my own skin and knowing that all that really matters is that Lyra and I are both healthy and happy.

"I'll take each day one at a time and at my own pace. Sending love to all the moms out there in their own postpartum journeys. We're all amazing!"

It comes just a few days after the dancer was defended by fans after she shared an adorable Instagram post of her first walk with baby Lyra.

The snaps showed the family of three heading out for their first country walk as the new parents pushed their adorable tot through luscious green fields as the sun beamed down.

Joining them on the family outing were Aljaz's mum, dad and sister who had made the trip over from Slovenia to meet their granddaughter and niece for the first time.

Sharing the post, the new mum wrote the caption: "Lyra’s first stroll in the countryside."

She then added a video and wrote: "Was finally able to take Lyra for a stroll in the pram and the day could not have been more perfect for it. She loved the fresh air, and @aljazskorjanec and I loved showing her the field where she’ll one day be running around and playing in."

In response, fans loved seeing the family of three out on their "first" together and were supportive of the new parents.

One wrote: "I love how you’re sharing these precious moments. Enjoy every minute as they fly by in a heartbeat."

While another added: "I love how devoted Alijazs is already! Such a beautiful family. Little Ms Lyra Rose is a lucky little lady."

However, some people were not quite so keen on the clip as one wrote: "Unfollowing fed up with baby posts."

Many leapt on this comment to lambast it as "just plain rude".

"Oh, what a relief. Thanks for clarifying this. Would have struggled to move forward with my day if you hadn't clarified this," one commented.

"Why not just unfollow then? Why the need to criticise them during your exit? That’s not kind at all, it’s just plain rude. I personally love sharing in their happiness," added another.
