Dancing with the Stars has brought couples together before, including Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson. The two were paired up for a season of Dancing with the Stars with Kym teaching Robert how to dance. The two didn’t win the Mirrorball trophy, but they did win in love. And the two got engaged almost a year after meeting one another. Maybe there’s something about the ballroom, where love is found and love is shared. Two of the former contestants on Dancing with the Stars are now expecting their first child. Who is the lucky couple?
According to a new Hollywood Life report, Dancing with the Stars competitors Alexa PenaVega and her husband, Carlos, are expecting their first child. Alexa and Carlos were married prior to going on Dancing with the Stars, but the two competed against one another. Neither of them won the Mirrorball trophy, but Carlos did end up going further than Alexa. But now these two can celebrate a future PenaVega.
“Breaking news! It’s #ClearblueConfirmed a lil PenaVega is on the way! #ItsHappening #HolyWow #ClearbluePartner,” Carlos revealed on Twitter, with his wife retweeting the photo of them holding a positive pregnancy test.

“I cannot believe I finally get to say this… WE’RE PREGNANT!!! It’s #ClearblueConfirmed that a little blessing is joining the PenaVega family!!! We can’t wait!!! #ItsHappening #HolyWow #LosForDaddyOfTheYear,” Alexia revealed on Instagram, sharing pictures of them together celebrating a positive pregnancy test.
This Dancing with the Stars couple is over-the-moon excited about this baby news, and it sounds like they have been trying to get pregnant for a while. They have been married for two and a half years and they appear more than ready to become parents.
When Carlos and Alexa competed on the show together, they did have some friendly competition. Even though they both wanted one another to continue, they both wanted to win. But when she was sent home, PenaVega admitted that his wife was helping him through Dancing with the Stars by massaging his legs and feet after his practices.
“My wife, she really wants me to win it. Her getting knocked out last week was tough, so she’s like my little cheerleader on the side of the road,” Carlos told E! News after Alexa was eliminated on Dancing with the Stars, adding that he’s getting spoiled due to her elimination. “I’m getting a lot of foot massages. It’s actually really nice.”
Of course, he ended up being in the final four with Nick Carter, Bindi Irwin, and Alek Skarlatos. Bindi ended up winning the whole thing with Derek Hough.
“I did not think that I would get here,” Carlos admitted, with his then-dance partner Witney Carson, sharing, “I feel like this season, I’ve really been taking risks. I think that’s because of you. I think you pushed me.”
One can imagine that many of his former Dancing with the Stars competitors will send messages of support, congratulations, and even some baby gifts once they learn of the news. And these two appear to be more than excited, as they were both gushing with joy and smiles when they announced the news on social media with pictures of their positive pregnancy test. And all of their fans could not be more excited for them. Since they are very social on Twitter and Instagram, one can imagine that these two Dancing with the Stars stars will share the news of their birth with fans and possibly even share a photo of the little baby when he or she arrives.
