Plenty of Dancing With The Stars pros became parents last year. Lindsay Arnold and Witney Carson even sat out Season 29 due to their maternity leaves. Now, many DWTS fans are looking at some of the other professionals to see when they might start families of their own. Many fans believe that either Jenna Johnson and Val Chmerkovskiy, or Emma Slater and Sasha Farber will be the next pros to have children.
Jenna Johnson said in previous interviews that she and Val have baby fever, so it seems likely they could be next. But what about Emma and Sasha? According to a recent Us Weekly interview, they’re taking their sweet time.
Emma Slater wants to have more time in her career before motherhood
As any parent knows, parenthood can be a full-time job in itself. Having a new baby at home can make it incredibly difficult to hold down a career. And Emma isn’t quite ready to give all that up yet.
“I’m a baby myself a lot,” Emma told the publication. “I feel like I’m 32, so definitely I could be thinking about it, but I just still feel like I’m not quite that age yet. There’s a lot of women that feel like that. I don’t know if it’s just [because] I’m so involved in my career.”
Emma loves competing on DWTS, but she also received her real estate license last year. She wants to explore a little more before she settles down with a family. But even so, it’s a topic she and Sasha talk about regularly.
“I think a family is something that is high priority and we’re at the point now where you kind of shift things around based on, ‘OK, so this is kind of the time that we want to get pregnant,’” Emma told Us Weekly in a 2019 interview. “I know that that can be difficult. It’s not as easy as just, you know, getting pregnant. But it’s definitely something that we’re going to make happen.”
The couple has many other exciting pursuits right now
Emma Slater and Sasha Farber may not have children right now, but their lives are far from empty. For now, they are the parents of two dogs. And in the meantime, they’re enjoying their friends’ children. Sasha uploaded a photo of the couple holding Sage Cusick, castmate Lindsay Arnold’s baby girl.
Emma and Sasha will decide when it’s the right time to start a family. But there is plenty to look forward to until then. While Emma has been working in real estate, Sasha helped Olympian Simone Biles choreograph some of her competition routines.
Both Emma and Sasha also became American citizens late last year, something they looked forward to for some time.
With all those side projects, it’s easy to see why Emma Slater doesn’t believe she has time for a baby right now. Either way, stay tuned and we’ll let you know as soon as we know any more.
Dancing With The Stars returns to ABC on September 20. Don’t forget to set your times! You won’t want to miss out on this landmark season.
