Professional dancer Anna Trebunskaya is expecting her first child, US Weekly reported Wednesday September 4.
Many fans noticed Trebunskaya was missing from the pairings list when the cast for season 17 of "Dancing with the Stars" was announced on Wednesday. Trebuskaya had good reason for not joining her fellow pros this season as she knew about her pregnancy since the end of last season.
The 32-year-old shares her experience leading up to the big news and her hunch about a shift taking place in her life.
"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,'" she tells US Weekly. "And sure enough, this is going to be one huge change!"
The mom-to-be has not shared the name of the baby’s father but says he is "very supportive." And he's not the only one. "My mom is so excited she's going to be a grandmother."
Trebunskaya shares that she will miss being on the show but will still show up and support her fellow dancers.
The dancer shares her plans post-pregnancy, "I'm looking forward to getting back into shape and dancing and bringing the baby on board into the "Dancing with the Stars" family!"
