Dancing with the Stars professional dancer Witney Carson has announced the arrival of her first child with her husband Carson McAllister.

Witney shared a sweet black and white photo of her holding the hand of her newborn son while Carson held onto Witney’s hand. The dancer has not yet revealed her son’s name but she did share a little bit about her birth experience. “After a really hard 24-hour labor, and an unexpected c-section… we are all healthy and well.” She also shared a message about enjoying this moment with her son. “We are so grateful & we’ve been soaking up every moment with our perfect angel boy. Thank you for all the prayers!”

A day before announcing her son’s arrival, Witney shared a photo of her in the hospital. In the image, Witney was sitting on the hospital bed wearing a hospital gown while gazing down at her pregnant belly, holding it lovingly. “Alright baby boy, let’s do this,” she wrote in the caption.

In July of 2020, Witney announced that she and Carson were pregnant. She partnered with ClearBlue to share the news. “Baby McAllister coming Jan 2021!!!!! We can’t even contain our excitement and joy right now🙏🏼😭❤️ We found out together with @clearblue, which was so surreal and special! Getting our results in words made this whole thing that much more real! We love this little bean so much already and we can’t wait to start this beautiful chapter in our lives!”

We wish Witney and Carson lots of love as they enjoy all the new moments with their son and look forward to learning what they’ve chosen to name him. Congratulations!
