Congratulations to Edyta Sliwinska and Alec Mazo.
The former Dancing with the Stars professionals welcomed their first child – son Michael Alexander Mazo – on Saturday, January 4, she announced via Twitter. Our bundle of joy, born on Jan 4th! We are in love and as happy as can be!!!” the proud new mom, 32, tweeted.
“We are extremely happy and in love with him. So far it’s been the most amazing experience of my life,” Sliwinska tells PEOPLE.
She added: “Even though I’ve been told how incredible it is to be a mom, I never imagined I would enjoy so much every minute spent with my little munchkin.”
After Sliwinska and Mazo, 35, competed on DWTS for several seasons, she announced her focus would be shifting to starting a family. In October, the couple — who have been together for 13 years — announced their pregnancy news.
“It’s difficult for a dancer because deciding to have a baby means taking yourself out of the game for awhile,” Sliwinska said after her pregnancy announcement.
It’s a Dancing with the Stars baby boom! Friend and fellow DWTS pro Anna Trebunskaya is expecting a daughter in February.
