Witney Carson McAllister‘s 2021 is starting off on pointe.
The Dancing With the Stars champion shared the sweet and special news that she’s a mom! On Monday, Jan. 4, she and husband Carson McAllister welcomed their first child together, a baby boy.
Witney’s journey to motherhood came with some complications, however. As the star wrote on Instagram, “After a really hard 24 hour labor, and an unexpected c-section… we are all healthy and well. We are so grateful & we’ve been soaking up every moment with our perfect angel boy. Thank you for all the prayers!”
Just before announcing her little one’s arrival, the professional dancer shared a photo of herself in a hospital bed. “Alright baby boy, let’s do this,” she captioned her Instagram on Sunday, Jan. 3.
She also uploaded several behind-the-scenes moments from the delivery room on Instagram Stories, writing, “Contractions are actual hell but the epidural is heaven… so I’m doing great.”
