Witney Carson has given birth to her first child.
The ‘Dancing with the Stars’ professional and her husband Carson McAllister have welcomed their first child, a baby boy, together following a “really hard 24 hour labour”, the beauty confirmed on social media.
Posting a picture of herself and Carson holding their son’s hand, Witney wrote on Instagram: "After a really hard 24 hour labor, and an unexpected c-section... we are all healthy and well. We are so grateful & we’ve been soaking up every moment with our perfect angel boy. Thank you for all the prayers! (sic)”
Witney previously said she wanted to be “induced at 39 weeks”, because she didn’t want to go through the risk of having a C-section.
In an Instagram video posted a few months ago, she said: "I just don't want the risk of having a C-section.
"I asked my doctor about that and he said the best way is to be induced. He said there's been a lot of studies about how they've had less C-sections with women who were induced versus women who waited until full-term - so that's kind of what I'm basing my decision off of.”
The dancer announced her pregnancy in July, sharing a photo of herself holding a sonogram and a positive pregnancy test while hugging her husband.
She later said: "Family has meant everything to me throughout this pregnancy. Through all the emotional ups and downs, they have stood by my side to help me through it. So much good advice and love for me and baby.
"Carson, my husband, has been especially amazing! I couldn't do this without him. He really is my rock and I couldn't be more grateful for his compassion and patience."
