Fans of “Dancing With the Stars” noticed a popular red-haired dancer’s name was not mentioned on the newly revealed season 17 cast list. The 32-year-old Anna Trebunsakaya is four-months pregnant with her first child and very happy. The DWTS vet told US Weekly that although this pregnancy was not planned, the Russian-born ballroom dancer felt a change was ahead.
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. It was interesting because in the last six to eight months, I was saying to my friends, 'I'm ready for a change. I feel a change coming on.’ And sure enough, this is going to be one huge change!
Anna Trebunskaya is not ready to divulge the name of the proud father-to-be, however she did state he is very supportive. Fans of DWTS may remember Anna had been married to Jonathan Roberts, also of “Dancing With the Stars”, for nine years and divorced in October of 2012. The couple reportedly still own a dance studio located in Hermosa, California, together.
While Anna Trebunskaya is thrilled to be pregnant, she is a little “bummed” she won’t return to season 17 of “Dancing With the Stars”. She is looking forward to dance her way back into shape and to introduce her bundle of joy to the DWTS family.
"Dancing With the Stars" will return to ABC on Monday, September 16, with an all-new, cast minus dancing professional Anna Trebunskaya.
