"Ran into this photo today," penned Janette. "Our beautiful @emmathynn really does know how to treat us to a gorgeous dinner party.Thank you for celebrating @aljazskorjanec birthday and for always being the most wonderful host. We love you."

The words were penned alongside a chic photo of the dinner which was held in a cosy private room lit solely by long candles on the table. The room was surrounded by books in floor-to-ceiling bookshelves.

Janette and Aljaz welcomed Lyra in July last year whilst going through IVF. In an exclusive interview with HELLO! they opened up about their journey. "We thought IVF was the next best thing for us to do," said Janette, who quit her role as a professional dancer two years ago so she and Aljaž could try for a baby.

"I know that IVF can be really strenuous on a woman’s body and there is no guarantee it will work, so to know that this little miracle just came from a wonderful night we had together is amazing. I think the baby decided to make Mum and Dad panic a bit before saying, 'ok, fine, I’m coming up now.'"
