'DWTS' Couple Edyta and Alec Welcome a Son
There's a new baby in the "Dancing With the Stars" family!
Professional dancers Edyta Sliwinska and Alec Mazo became first-time parents on Jan. 4 when their son, Michael Alexander Mazo, was born.
"Our bundle of joy," Sliwinska, 32, wrote on Twitter, sharing a sweet photo of herself cradling the snoozing babe, adding, "We are in love and as happy as can be!!!"
Sliwinska, who hails from Poland, and Russian-born Mazo, 35, have been together for a total of 13 years, tying the knot six years ago. In October, they shared their pregnancy news.
Throughout her pregnancy, Sliwinska — who competed on "DWTS" for 10 seasons, but has not yet won the mirrorball like her husband (Mazo won with Kelly Monaco in 2005) — shared cute photos of her growing baby belly. And she won't be rushing back to the dance floor either. For now, the focus is on baby.
"It's difficult for a dancer because deciding to have a baby means taking yourself out of the game for a while," she told People magazine in October.

Though starting a family is something she was eager for. As she noted when she made her pregnancy announcement, "This is something we've been planning for a long time."
And their time is now! Congrats to the happy family.
