So exciting! Married couple Carlos and Alexa PenaVega will compete on Season 21 of ‘Dancing With The Stars,’ they confirmed. The ‘Spy Kids’ and ‘Big Time Rush’ stars will be the show’s first married couple to compete against each other.
We can’t wait for Season 21 of Dancing With The Stars to start. Not only are Nick Carter and Bindi Irwin competing on the dancing series, but married couple Carlos, 26, and Alexa PenaVega, 27, will be going up against each other for the mirror ball trophy. So cool!
“It’s so exciting,” Alexa told ET’s Cameron Mathison at Disneyland’s Diamond Celebration on Aug. 27. “It’s beautiful, it’s overwhelming, it’s an incredible blessing.”
Alexa and Carlos, who tied the knot in January 2014, will be the first married duo to compete against each other on the show. They’ll be paired up with separate professional partners and will dance against each other for the mirror ball trophy, ET claims. During Season 8, Jewel and her then-husband, Ty Murray, were supposed to compete against each other, but her injuries in week one of rehearsals forced her to drop out of the series. She was then replaced by Holly Madison.
Despite the competition, Alex, who starred in Spy Kids, and Carlos of Big Time Rush, said they’ll support each other throughout. “It’s so good, though, because he literally rehearses right next door,” Alexa said. “So he’ll walk over to me and he’ll just give me a kiss. It’s just so encouraging. He is my teammate and my life partner, so I like that encouragement. I need it.”
“The opportunity to work with my wife was like kind of almost a number one because we love spending time together,” Carlos said. “We’re almost two years married. It’s still fresh. I was like, ‘Babe, we got to do this’ and here we are.”
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Season 21 will feature Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter, Bindi Irwin, and Triple Crown jockey Victor Espinoza.
