In honor of Mother’s Day, Witney Carson announced the arrival of her second child with her husband Carson McAllister. The Dancing with the Stars pro welcomed her little one two weeks early on May 13th. “Could there be a better Mother’s Day gift?? We are on cloud nine and soaking in every second.”
Witney and Carson welcomed a son, news they shared in January, and chose to name him Jet Carson McAllister. The middle name of Carson is doubly meaningful for Jet as it’s his mother’s maiden name and father’s first name. The dancer wrote in the caption of her post, which featured her newborn smiling, “Our hearts have doubled in size for our Jetty boy. He’s the most perfect addition to our family and has already given us so much joy! We love you baby boy.”
Witney took her followers along her journey to give birth, documenting the moments on her Instagram Stories. She shared that her contractions were “3-4 minutes apart and getting painful” once they arrived at the hospital. “Within 10 minutes, we had baby.” Witney also revealed that her little one had some difficulty breathing and spent a little bit of time in the NICU before recovering.
Carson shared a sweet post celebrating the mother of his children. The image showed a proud Witney gazing at Carson holding their two sons. He wrote, “I am so happy to call @witneycarson the mother of my TWO precious boys. She keeps me calm and keeps her cool cause she knows I’m [losing] it inside. You’re my rock babe! Im so proud of you! Mothers will never get the credit they deserve for bringing little ones into this world. I love my little growing family!”
Jet joins the family with the couple’s first child, a son named Kevin Leo. Kevin was born on January 3, 2021. Earlier this year, Witney shared a touching video where Kevin interacted with his little brother, doting on the dancer’s belly. “He’s going to be the best big brother.”
Congratulations to Witney and Carson on the arrival of their baby boy! We wish them all the best as they welcome Jet into their family.
