Mark Ballas and BC Jean, could NOT be any cuter! And with a wedding in the works and a tour this summer, the ‘DWTS’ pro and his singer fiancée, spoke EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com about what their nuptials will be like and how many kids they’re gunning for!
Mark Ballas, 30, and BC Jean, 29, are BEYOND excited to start their life together, and lucky for them, they don’t have to wait long! In fact, the engaged couple got super candid on the HollywoodLife.com podcast and dished about what kind of wedding they’re planning, who’s invited, and what their baby plans are.

In a new interview for the HollywoodLife.com podcast, Mark and BC revealed that, although they got engaged back in November, the two STILL haven’t done very much wedding planning — but they’re not worried! “We haven’t had much time, but we definitely are supposed to be doing that,” BC explained with a humorous tone.
“We were doing it, then life happened,” Mark chimed in. “The EP, then the tour and the show, traveling.” Makes total sense, right? The lovebirds HAVE been incredibly busy lately so we don’t blame them for putting their nuptials on hold.
After all, Mark competed in Season 22 of Dancing With the Stars while he and BC have been preparing to go on tour together this summer as a singing duo, and yes, they also released a fabulous EP. But when it comes to the basics, Mark and BC have a pretty good idea of what they want their wedding to look like.
BC thinks thinks the ceremony will most likely take place on the West Coast. And while Mark originally wanted to do it in Hawaii, BC laughed, “That’s why we went there for his 30th — get it out of his system!” But aside from having a West Coast wedding, BC and Mark both have agreed to keep it “intimate” with “definitely a good party.”
It totally sounds like their walk down the aisle will be a blast! But the couple still have yet to pick a date. “I have a lot of family members. A lot of friends on both coasts,” Mark dished. “I grew up in England, so all my high school and college friends are in the UK. I’m getting texts like ‘when’s the date?'”
BC added, “I don’t want people I don’t know at the wedding, so the whole plus-one situation is going to be awkward. I’m not so comfortable with that. If they’re married or in a serious relationship, that’s a different story. I don’t trust some of my friends for the people they date.”
So in the end, the couple are planning on having less than 200 guests. And as for Mark’s best man? While he didn’t come right out and say it, we have a feeling fellow DWTS celeb, Derek Hough, 31, will fill the position. “Derek is pretty much my brother,” Mark gushed.
And while Mark and BC definitely have babies on the brain, they’re not quite ready to become parents just YET. But eventually they’re looking to have a sizable fam. “I mean, we’re both only children technically,” BC said. As Mark added that they “definitely [want] more than one.”
“Like two or three,” BC confirmed. “A psychic told me I would have three so that’s probably true.” Aw! If you can’t get enough of BC and Mark, check out their tour, which begins June 17.
