LOS ANGELES, Aug. 19 (UPI) -- Allison Holker will reportedly return for Dancing with the Stars Season 23.

Holker, who joined the ABC reality competition in Season 19, sat out Season 22 due to her pregnancy and new baby. She and Boss met as all-stars on Fox's So You Think You Can Dance in 2010 and married in 2013.

"Our baby brings so much happiness into our house," Holker told People magazine in May. "He's laughing, he smiles, he sleeps through the night. It's like we have the dream of a baby. It's amazing!"

"Our baby dances every night," she added. "He loves hip-hop music. He jams out every single night. It's incredible. We actually had our baby to the song "Push It" by Salt-N-Pepa, so he's musically inclined, and he's got a lot of rhythm."

Holker is also mom to 8-year-old daughter Weslie from a previous relationship. In addition to her family, the dancer is busy gearing up to release a jewelry line with Nashelle Jewelry, Allison Holker x Nashelle.
