Cape Town - Heinz and Aletté Winckler shared with Huisgenoot the name they had chosen for their baby girl, who is making her entrance into the world in January.

The couple announced in June that they are expecting their fourth child.  

The following month Aletté revealed that they are expecting a baby girl

Aletté told Huisgenoot that they decided to name their daughter Alannah Elize, but will call her Alana. She explained that the first two letters "Al" comes from her name, and the rest of the name is derived from her mother's name, Hannah. 

Alannah's second name is inspired by Heinz's mother, who is named Engela Elizabeth.

On Wednesday, Aletté saw her daughter's face for the first time, during a 4D ultrasound. Sharing the experience on Instagram, she wrote: "Like all her brothers she was doing everything she could to hide her face either behind an umbilical cord, a hand or a foot, but the glimpse we saw was beautiful."

In a previous interview with Channel24, Heinz spoke about how much he enjoys fatherhood, saying: "I love watching these little people grow up in front of us. They have a little bit of my wife and me in them, but at the same time, they're unique. I also really enjoy learning more about the father heart of God by being a father myself."
