It’s unclear exactly when, but Jana first publicly mentioned him on her Whine Down podcast on Jan. 9. “Yes, it was a week later I flew out here [for this trip]but only because I can’t come back because, you know, weekends [with the kids] and, you know, there’s things that I couldn’t rearrange and right now with his job, he can’t come,” she said, talking about how her trip to England in Dec. 2022 was actually a getaway to visit Allan. “So I’ll have to do more of the bulk of the flying for the next few months. But I’m excited about it. And you know, in three weeks, hopefully, I’ll be back. … I’m happy.”

Allan shows off some of his soccer training tips in YouTube videos.

Allan hasn’t met Jana’s kids yet.

As of early Jan., Jana admitted her new beau hadn’t met her children because she wants to make sure she keeps things as “steady” as possible with them. “I’ve done a really good job at not introducing the kids to people. And obviously they haven’t met the new boyfriend,” she recently said on her podcast. “Having said that, the boyfriend and I are talking about future things.”

“And in my mind, I’m like, it makes me excited and it also makes me scared for — you just never know, right?” she continued. “And with kids, I don’t want them to be in a place where their ground is not as steady as possible. Like I want them to be so secure, solid foundation, and I’m in charge of that.”

“And then always my concern — I don’t care about me, my heart’s been broken a million times, I can deal with another broken heart — my kids, that’s a different story,” she concluded. “They’re older now, they understand more now.”
