Aliona Vilani quit Strictly Come Dancing to start family
Aliona Vilani quit 'Strictly Come Dancing' because she wants to start a family.
The 31-year-old beauty - who is married to sales director Vincent Kavanagh - announced she was leaving the celebrity dance contest yesterday (22.12.15), and it's now been reported she made the decision because she's desperate to become a mother.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "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 took to Twitter to announce she would not be appearing on the next series of the show after leading The Wanted's Jay McGuinness to victory in last weekend's final.
She wrote: "Going into this Strictly Come Dancing Series 13, I decided that no matter what would happen, it will be my last one."
Aliona previously won the glitterball trophy with McFly's Harry Judd in 2011.
The blonde beauty has now jetted off to Florida with husband Vincent to visit family over the festive season.
