Anna Trebunskaya always envisioned a family in her future — she just never realized her dreams of motherhood would come much sooner than expected.

And it all paid off on Jan. 18 when she gave birth to her baby girl, Amalya, at home.

Now settling in as a family of three (plus their protective pooch, Murphy!), Trebunskaya, 33, and her actor boyfriend, Nevin Millan, are basking in complete baby bliss.

From the days leading up to her natural water birth to the most surprising part of motherhood, the Dancing with the Stars pro is opening up to PEOPLE about her first few weeks as a new mom.

Seven months into her pregnancy, Dancing with the Stars beauty Anna Trebunskaya is finally beyond being surprised by the idea of becoming a first-time mother.

Not only has maternal instinct kicked in, but so has maternal humility.

“This whole experience has been so humbling in a way, just going through the changes with your body,” she told PEOPLE while attending the 3rd Annual Santa’s Secret Workshop, which benefited L.A. family housing, in West Hollywood on Saturday.

“Feeling like how an 80-year-old would feel like when you get up off the chair and you can’t walk quite fast, and me being so used to just jumping up and down and kicking my legs up.”

Not that the 32-year old has been taking it that easy — and it shows.

Anna Trebunskaya: Why My Baby Will Have Russian and American Names

10/06/2013 at 02:00 PM ET

Dancing with the StarsAnna Trebunskaya may be off the show this season because of her burgeoning belly, but that won’t stop her from dancing for a good cause.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month and a cause that’s close to her heart — Trebunskaya lost a very good friend to breast cancer six years ago — the 32-year-old danced with breast cancer survivors and patients from the Torrance Memorial Medical Center on Friday.

“I think dancing is a great way to have fun, let loose and forget about your problems or sicknesses. Sometimes that’s all it takes — an hour of positive energy, having fun, music and socializing with friends,” the mom-to-be told PEOPLE at her Hermosa Beach dance studio for the Bust A Move event.

Along with supporting a good cause, Trebunskaya’s been keeping plenty busy getting ready for her bundle of joy.

“I’m so excited about learning all of this baby stuff and just acquiring the gear. Right now we’re in the process of doing research and acquiring what I will need,” she says. “I get so overwhelmed with all of the information and with all the variety of things. Luckily, I have a few friends who just had kids and they are able to give me suggestions.”

Professional dancer Anna Trebunskaya fully expected she’d return to Dancing With the Stars for its 17th season — until she discovered she was pregnant.

“It was a bit shocking at first, but I got over that pretty quick,” Trebunskaya, 32, tells PEOPLE of finding out she was expecting her first child.

“Even though this was not planned, I believe things happen for a reason and it was meant to be.”

She continues, “I’ve always wanted to have a baby, but it was never the right time. I guess it was fate — or the universe — telling me it was time to be a mom.”

While she had hoped to return, once she realized she was expecting, it was no longer an option. “I don’t think it would be best for my health and the baby’s health to go through all of those hours of rehearsals,” says Trebunskaya.

There’s a big reason why Anna Trebunskaya isn’t joining the cast of the new season of Dancing with the Stars — she’s expecting.

The reality show star, 32, is four months pregnant with her first child, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Trebunskaya — who split from her husband of nine years, fellow DWTS pro Jonathan Roberts, last October — hasn’t revealed the name of the baby’s father.

The Russian dancer isn’t letting her pregnancy slow her down — she took to the stage with Dmitry Chaplin as one of the performers in Ballroom With a Twist in Ogunquit, Maine, last week.
