Dancing always put a damper on starting a family, but now Edyta Sliwinska is ready to shine in her greatest performance to date: motherhood.

Expecting a baby boy in January with “the greatest guy on earth,” husband Alec Mazo, the former Dancing with the Stars pro says the couple’s latest steps have been completely choreographed.

She adds, “I come from a big family and I always wanted to have kids. It feels like the right time now to make this change in life.”
