An anonymous source reportedly close to Vilani and her husband told The Sun: "Aliona loves children and is ready to have a family. They are going to start trying straight away."

"The Wanted" singer Jay McGuiness helped Vilani capture her second win in seven seasons, but the two faced, and denied, rumors of romance during much of the season.
