“DWTS” Pro Anna Trebunskaya’s Daughter Has Been “Practicing” for Her Baby Brother
Peta Murgatroyd isn’t the only Dancing With the Stars pro who’s putting her fancy footwork to good use when it comes to keeping up with a tiny (yet obviously demanding) bundle of joy. Former DWTS expert Anna Trebunskaya is expecting her second child and sharing her excitement over the fact that she’s having a bouncing baby boy. (Seriously, considering his mom’s dancing ways, he’ll probably be bouncing around with all kinds of stellar moves right from the start.)
“We are in the nesting mode now, organizing our house, laundering baby clothes, putting things in a way that is the most functional and accessible to save us time and energy,” Trebunskaya told Entertainment Tonight while chatting about the final days of prep before her little one makes his big arrival.
Trebunskaya and her boyfriend, Nevin Millan, are already the proud parents to a three-year-old daughter, Amalya, who is apparently totally thrilled to become a big sister. “Amalya is so excited to meet her little brother, she can hardly contain herself,” the 36-year-old dancer shared.
“She keeps playing the family game, where I’m mama, she’s sister, and one of her dolls is a baby. I think it’s her way of ‘practicing.’ It’s so adorable. We pretend to change diapers, feeding baby bottles, and putting baby to sleep. She’s so nurturing, so we’re hoping that carries over to her real baby brother.” It certainly sounds like Trebunskaya will avoid the sibling jealousy that Kim Kardashian West is experiencing with North and Saint.
The dancer even added, “Although I’ll be breastfeeding, she can’t wait to feed him with a bottle once I’m in pumping mode. I had that breast pump with me everywhere last time!”
And we have no doubt that Amalya helped her mom plan for the recent “baby sprinkle” the family threw to celebrate their upcoming arrival.
The DWTS alum was feted at an elegant tea party hosted by her mother, Irina Trebunskaya, at her You Can Dance studio in Hermosa Beach, California, on Sunday. Vintage tea cups were lined up with sandwiches, fruit, a vegan and gluten-free cake provided by The Trim Tart , and Champagne (for those who weren’t 38 weeks preggo), along with plenty of balloons and budget-friendly flowers from Trader Joe’s.
With the baby due in early September, Trebunskaya is planning on a home birth, which is also how she brought her first child into the world.
But they’re not so set when it comes to baby names, with the dancer admitting, “We started with about 20 names first. Now we are down to three to four names.” She said they’re mostly “inspired by geographical landmarks, historical characters, and also names from literature.” They intend to wait until their son is born before making the final decision: “We did the same with Amalya. We want to meet our boy first before naming him.”
We can’t wait to find out what they decide on once the little one arrives!
