Dancer and choreographer Witney Carson, who won season 19 of “Dancing with the Stars” with Alfonso Ribeiro, is expecting her first child with her husband, Carson McAllister.


Born in October 1993, Witney Carson started attracting a lot of attention in 2012 when she participated and ended up as the second runner-up in “So You Think You Can Dance” season 9.

After that, she joined “Dancing with the Stars” as a troupe dancer in seasons 16 and 17 but was eventually promoted to professional partner in season 18. In November 2014, Carson and her dance partner Alfonso Ribeiro won the Mirrorball trophy.

Although Carson’s career is nothing short of impressive, her fairytale romance with her husband Carson McAllister is also beautiful and definitely worth mentioning.

The couple attended American Fork High School in Utah, and although they met each other when they were younger, she only became interested in him during senior year.


When McAllister finished high school, he went to Romania to complete his two-year Mormon mission trip through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. That was also the time Carson participated in “So You Think You Can Dance.”

Although they were miles apart from each other, they kept their romance running via mail. Finally, when McAllister came back from Romania, he took Carson on their first official date.


The couple kept living miles away even after McAllister returned to the States as he went to college and worked with his dad in Utah while she focused on her dance career in Los Angeles.

Then, in October 2015, Carson and McAllister made headlines after revealing their engagement!



The professional dancer took to Instagram to share a photo of the pair hugging each other while standing on a beach. In the caption, she wrote:

“My love of four years @carson.mcallister proposed last night & I feel like the luckiest, happiest woman in the world. It was perfect, he's perfect #engaged.”


Shortly after the proposal, Carson McAllister and Witney Carson revealed to “DWTS” some details about how he popped the question, and it was just beautiful.

Although Carson thought that her boyfriend was in Utah, he was actually in California arranging everything for the secret proposal. Then, the dancer and her sister went to Manhattan Beach to have dinner, but it was all part of his plan.

Carson and her husband threw a gender reveal party.


Once on the beach, Carson saw McAllister surrounded by candles in a little canopy with music playing in the background. After a while, the couple’s song came on, and that’s when he got down on one knee and, shaking, proposed.

McAllister revealed that his dad helped him dig the 9x9 hole in the sand for the proposal. They even calculated that they shoveled out about 16,000 pounds of sand.

On January 1, 2016, Carson McAllister officially became Witney Carson’s husband as they tied the knot in a three-part celebration in the Salt Lake City area. The dancer admitted that she was “just excited” to start their lives together.



Three years later, in September 2019, Carson admitted that she and her husband were “baby hungry,” pointing out that it happened “all of a sudden” and that every time she saw a baby, she wanted to have one.

The couple’s wishes are about to be granted as they announced in July 2020 that Carson was expecting her first baby, a boy.

Despite the pandemic, Carson and her husband threw a gender reveal party with some family members who had been quarantining together.

As shown in an Instagram video, her loved ones twisted handheld confetti cannons and released blue powder. Carson McAllister and Witney Carson’s child is expected to be born in January 2021.
