A new Dancing with the Starsbaby has joined the troupe

Two Dancing with the Stars dancers will be dancing around the living room with a newborn for a few months — Edyta Sliwinska and Alec Mazo welcomed a 7-pound baby girl on June 18 according to People. And we love her name: Leia Josephine. (The Force will definitely be strong with this one.)

Sliwinska's rep told People, "The new family of four are over the moon and absolutely in love with their little princess."

Little Leia is Sliwinska and Mazo's second child — big brother is Michael Alexander, 3, who actually chose his baby sister's name.

Sliwinska has been very candid on social media about her pregnancy, with an announcement last Christmas alongside a picture of her rocking a bikini and huge belly bump.

We're happy the family's wait is over — and can't wait to see more photos of the foursome.
