As usual, DWTS is not following their model of actually waiting to report the couples on the shows they originally told us they were reporting them on, and ET Online has leaked ahead of time that Carlos & Alexa are, indeed, on DWTS this season…and I already kind of adore having a husband and wife team on the show:
ET caught up with the dancing duo at Disneyland’s Diamond Celebration on Thursday morning to break the DWTS news.
“It’s so exciting,” Alexa, who is also celebrating her 27th birthday today, gushed to ET’s Cameron Mathison. “It’s beautiful, it’s overwhelming, it’s an incredible blessing.”
Alexa and Carlos, who tied the knot in January 2014, will be paired up with separate professional partners and will dance against each other for the mirror-ball trophy. However, the couple is determined to support each other throughout the process.
“It’s so good, though, because he literally rehearses right next door,” Alexa shared. “So he’ll walk over to me and he’ll just give me a kiss. It’s just so encouraging. He is my teammate and my life partner, so I like that encouragement. I need it.”
As we mentioned in this post, our source has confirmed that Alexa is paired with Mark and Carlos is with Witney.
