Looks like ‘Dancing With The Stars’ pros Edyta Sliwinska and Alec Mazo have a great reason to dance — they are new parents to a baby boy! He’s so cute, we give him a 10! Congratulations to the happy couple!
Dancing With the Stars pro ballroom dancers Edyta Sliwinska and Alec Mazo welcomed a son named Michael into the world on Jan. 4 — and revealed his adorable first photo on Jan. 9. Judging by how well the real life couple dances together, their son will be dancing soon enough!
Edyta Sliwinska Baby Born: ‘DWTS’ Pro Welcomes Baby Boy With Alec Mazo
Edyta and Alec, both 32, told how excited they were to become parents to baby Michael on Jan. 4. “We are extremely happy and in love with him. So far it’s been the most amazing experience of my life,” Edyta told People.
She did admit she was worried that having a baby would take a toll on her body. ““It’s difficult for a dancer because deciding to have a baby means taking yourself out of the game for awhile,” she said after her pregnancy announcement in Oct. 2013. It looks like she’ll have no trouble getting back into dance-ready shape for the show, because she already looks fabulous in her first photo with the baby, and looked radiant in a gym picture she shared just weeks before the baby’s arrival:
Alec took to Twitter to thank their fans for all their support:
Thanks to everyone for the warm wishes regarding the new family addition!

Edyta Sliwinska and Alec Mazo’s Dancing Past
The dancing couple make a great team — they’ve been together for over 13 years and worked together on DWTS. Edyta has competed on the celebrity dance show for 10 seasons, and Alec ended his run after four seasons. The couple have been planning for a baby since they got married.
“We’ve been together for 13 years; married for six. We were both so ready for it and we’ve been planning on this for the past couple of years” Edyta told People after she announced her pregnancy.
The DTWS pros aren’t alone in their first-time parents happiness – fellow dancer and costar Anna Trebunskaya is expecting a girl in just a few weeks! (Built-in dance partner for little Michael?)
