Former 'Dancing with the Stars' professionals Edyta Sliwinska and Alec Mazo are expecting their first child together.

According to People, the couple's first child is expected to be born early in 2014 and they have announced that it will be a baby boy.

"I'm due in January and we are having a boy," Sliwinska, 32, tells People exclusively. "We've been together for 13 years; married for six. We were both so ready for it and we've been planning on this for the past couple of years."

The couple partnered together years ago on the Latin professional ballroom dance circuit and first competed on 'Dancing with the Stars' in 2005, before becoming husband and wife in 2007.

Mazo who is 35 years-old has participated in four seasons of the show and won on his first season with partner, Kelly Monaco.

Polish born Slinwinska has been on ten seasons of DWTS and her highest finish came in season 6 when she finished second with partner Jason Taylor.

When her 10th show finished in 2010, the 32 year-old dancer wrote on her facebook page that it was "time to think about my future. I'm pursuing my education and looking forward to other projects that perhaps you will hear about, but my main goal is to finish my degree and start building a family."

Finally three years later the couple are expecting their first child with Sliwinska posting a photo on her instagram showing off her baby bump with the caption "There it is, my little secret. Less than 2lbs little :)".
