Allison Holker, dance pro on Dancing With the Stars, shared with co-host Erin Andrews on Monday night's show that she is pregnant. This will be the first child for Hollker and hubby Stephen "tWitch" Boss. Allison Holker has a seven-year-old daughter, Weslie, from a previous relationship.
Holker is ecstatic.
"It's something that we have wanted for so long, and now it's actually happening, and it feels like the biggest blessing," she says.
"My daughter is so ecstatic about being a big sister," Allison Holker adds. "Every single day since we told her that we were having a baby, she helps take care of me. It's the most adorable thing."
"WE ARE HAVING A BABY @sir_twitch_alot !!!!!!!!" Allison Holker captioned this photo of her big announcement on Dancing With the Stars Monday evening.
Allison Holker is paired with Andy Grammer on DWTS, and the two make a stellar team on the ballroom floor. Are there any worries about Holker continuing on the show in light of her pregnancy?
There is just one--and it involves her Dancing With the Stars attire.
"You have no idea," she says. "Last week they put me in this little bitt leotard with all these cutouts! But I actually think I've filled out. I have bigger breasts and hips now, and once it was on, I was like 'Oh, I'm digging this,'" she says.
Allison Holker did, of course, run her DWTS role by her doctor.

“We had a really serious conversation about it and I explained to her everything that I have to do and asked if she thought I’d be okay,” she says. “She said, ‘Absolutely, your body is already used to you being this active.’ She was really confident about it and that made me feel so comfortable.”
Congratulations are certainly in order for Allison Holker and hubby tWitch--as well as to little Weslie. May she complete the rest of the season on Dancing With the Stars with no complications, and look forward to a healthy baby in the near future.
