Allison Holker, one of the pro dancers on Dancing With the Stars season 19, has a husband and a daughter.
Holker, 26, married Stephen “tWitch” Boss, 32, in 2013 after they both performed on So You Think You Can Dance, a show on Fox.
“It happened at the end of “SYTYCD” Season 7. She says she made the first move. I was completely oblivious to it. I’m really thickheaded,” Boss told Dance Spirit.
“I didn’t just make one move—I made, like, 10 moves and he wasn’t seeing them, so I had to put myself out there even more. From the first week of “SYTYCD” as All-Stars, I thought he was the cutest guy ever. His personality was so fun,” Holker revealed.
They knew of each other for a while but didn’t really speak to each other. Then, at the Step Up 3D premiere, Allison finally danced alone with Stephen and got to meet his mother and brother. And he asked for her number. They later danced for hours at the season 7 wrap party, and have been close ever since.
They’ve danced together in other places, including All The Right Moves on Oxygen.
Boss, who is perhaps best known as Jason in the Step Up movies, is a big fan of Allison, saying that she’s “so incredibly expressive that it goes beyond just watching her—you feel her.”
Allison also praised her husband, saying: “If I could describe him in one word…he’s a beast. He moves and the whole floor shakes beneath him. When you’re dancing next to him, you’re inspired to be bigger and dance your fullest. He moves every inch of his body, and it’s intriguing and fun to watch.”

Weslie is Boss’ stepdaughter but Boss has stepped in to be a good father to her.
“Their relationship is so beautiful, it makes me want to cry. She loves him so much, and he is such a good example of what a man should be,” Allison said.
Weslie’s real father is Holker’s ex-fiance. He hasn’t been widely identified.
Holker adores her daughter, telling People magazine years ago how she and Weslie dance a lot together.
“Every night we do a dance jam to get our wiggles out,” Allison said.
“She just moves — she loves Fergie! She goes for it 100 percent. I have to keep up!”
“She’s gorgeous with the most beautiful blue eyes and blonde hair she always steals the attention. She has the most beautiful sweet personality she absolutely loves meeting new people, discovering new things, and observing. She is fascinated in everything, everyone and how it works. Weslie is a complete mini version of me, the girliest of girls!” Allison added on her blog.
“When I’m getting ready for the day doing my hair and make up you better believe she’s right at my side, doing her own!! She’s my little sidekick we have killer dance parties, sleepovers, and like long walks on the beach! She might act shy at first…..But believe me it’s just a part of the act, she LOVES entertaining! She’ll have you smiling and laughing in just a matter of seconds.”
Both Boss and Weslie have seen Allison perform at least once in person during her debut season of “DWTS.” Allison said that they were in the audience for the first time in week 2.
