Her hair was packed to the back, and her face made up as she gave fans a glimpse of her well-decorated home. Alongside the lovely photo was an emotional message from the soon-to-be mother about missing out from this year's season. She wrote:
"Watching the Dancing With The Stars premiere at home this year with baby boy. First time in 8 years I haven't been apart of the show. It is bittersweet."
Carson explained that she missed dancing for her fans but remains grateful for her "little human miracle." She concluded her post wishing her friends on the show good luck.
Carson isn't the only "DWTS" pro to have a child as her best friend Lindsay Arnold announced her pregnancy two months earlier.
Fans of the reality series soon bombarded her comments section with comments about how much they miss her. Some fans confessed that the show wouldn't be the same without Carson, while others congratulated her.
Carson previously confirmed in August that she would not be participating in this season as a pro dancer. She attributed her pregnancy and the ongoing pandemic for sitting this year out as she wants to be safe.
The dancer and her husband, Carson McAllister, announced that they were expecting their first child together on July 23 with a heartwarming photo of them in a warm embrace while she held the pregnancy test and sonogram photos.
However, it wasn't until about two weeks later that she revealed the gender of their unborn child. The "DWTS" pro shared a heartwarming clip of her gender reveal party that showed their loved ones twist a confetti cannon that released blue powder, confirming it was a boy.
The soon-to-be parents were elated by the revelation as they jumped and celebrated with a hug. Carson isn't the only "DWTS" pro to have a child as her best friend Lindsay Arnold announced her pregnancy two months earlier.
Both dancers opted out of this year's season, staying loyal to their friendship. However, Carson believes another pro dancer will catch the baby fever soon.
During an interview with US Weekly, the Utah native predicted that friends Emma Slater and Jenna Johnson would be next in line. She confessed that it would be fantastic for them all to have kids around the same age.
