The cast ofDancing With The Stars was announced earlier this week and fans noticed that there was one name suspiciously missing from the list: Anna Trebunskaya.
The longtime Dancing With The Stars instructor announced that she was pregnant this week and that she won’t competing during the show’s 17th season.
Trebunskaya said that she was planning on competing on DWTS this year but she unexpectedly got pregnant.
The DWTS star said: “It wasn’t planned, but when it happened, I thought, ‘This is perfect — I’m ready to be a mom. This is something really good for me and fulfilling, and it’ll give me a whole new meaning in life.’ I’m really looking forward to it.”
The Stir notes that Trebunskaya split from her husband Jonathan Roberts last year. The DWTS hasn’t revealed the name of the father but she did say that he has been supportive.
When asked by Wet Paint about the identify of the baby’s father, Trebunskaya said: “I would rather not talk about it. He’s a great guy and he’s very supportive of me. Let’s put it this way: I wouldn’t be as happy with the situation as I am if he wasn’t supportive. It’s a new journey for me, a new adventure.”
Anna Trebunskaya won’t be competing this year on Dancing With The Stars but she might make a guest appearance or two. The professional dancer said that she’ll be a regular in the audience during the 17th season.
Trebunskaya said: “I’ll be in the audience as much as I can. I want to support my family. I’ll cheerlead from the sidelines!”
