Dancing always put a damper on starting a family, but now Edyta Sliwinska is ready to shine in her greatest performance to date: motherhood.
“This was absolutely planned. We always wanted to start a family and it never seemed to be the right time with our careers,” Sliwinska, 32, tells PEOPLE.
“It’s difficult for a dancer because deciding to have a baby means taking yourself out of the game for awhile.”
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.”
