“Dancing with the Star” pro Witney Carson said there is a special meaning behind her baby boy’s name.
“Kevin Leo McAllister,” she wrote on Instagram on Wednesday, revealing the moniker. “Named after his grandpa who sent him down to us.”
The 27-year-old, who announced the baby’s birth last week, also shared a new photo of the infant — her first child with husband Carson McAllister.
“My little Leo, I love you more than words can express,” she added. “You are the most precious gift. My life will forever be changed by your sweet spirit. Welcome to the world Leo.”
Fellow “DWTS” pros left sweet messages, including Emma Slater, who commented, “Omg congratulations!!! Hi baby Leo!!! I love you so much already!!”
Alan Bersten wrote, “Beautiful name. Congrats.”
“DWTS” judge Carrie Ann Inaba added, “Welcome to the world Leo!”
Last week, the pro dancer revealed she underwent a C-section after 24 hours in labor.
“We are so grateful & we’ve been soaking up every moment with our perfect angel boy,” she wrote on social media. “Thank you for all the prayers!”
