Edyta Sliwinska is ready to welcome her baby boy in a few months, but she’s especially happy to be through with the early, rough months of her pregnancy.
This week the former Dancing with the Stars pro announced that she and husband Alec Manzo are expecting their first child in January. The couple, who met on the show and married in 2007, said they’re thrilled to be expanding their family.
“We are very happy to announce that we are expecting our first child. Our baby boy is due in January and this is truly the most exciting time in our lives,” the former Dancing with the Stars professionals told E! News. “This is something we’ve been planning for a long time and are thrilled to share the happy news and start our family.”
Edyta Sliwinska said she is feeling good now as she enters her final trimester, but it wasn’t always that way.
“I’m feeling great, although being pregnant is not always easy, particularly the first few months,” the dancing pro said. “I was suffering from nausea and I’m really glad it’s over now.”
But now the 32-year-old dancer is working hard to stay in shape, including some kind of physical activity every day.
“It’s important for me to stay in shape not only because of my work but because our baby boy is my first priority,” she said. “I want to stay healthy for the little munchkin and if it makes me look better and feel more confident, that’s an extra bonus.”
