A pair of professional dancers from Dancing with the Stars are having a baby together.

Stephen Vincent, 34, and Kylee Vincent, 29, are expecting a new arrival in October – which they say is the “first ever Dancing with the Stars baby”.

The couple met 11 years ago touring with the Burn The Floor dance show, tied the knot in 2017, and joined the show’s Ireland cast in 2019.

With the gender still unknown, they have yet to decide on a name but are both keen on Archie if it is a boy.

Kylee finished as runner-up on series six of the show in 2023 when she was partnered with Irish singer and actor Damien McGinty.

Manchester-born Stephen also finished in 2nd place on series five in 2022, when he was paired up with Irish paralympic swimmer, Ellen Keane.

Kylee, originally from South Africa, but now living in Strangford Lough, Northern Ireland, said: “We’re both really, really excited about the baby.

“Touring and working in the industry we are in meant we put it aside for a while.

“But it felt like the right time now.

“We don’t know the gender yet, we get to find out at the beginning of June.

“Because we’ve moved to Northern Ireland, we’re going to go back to South Africa at the beginning of June to have a big gender reveal party.

“We have thought of a few names but Stephen and I can’t seem to agree on the same names just yet.

“We both like Archie, but if it’s a girl, we haven’t settled there yet!

“Growing up in the dance industry, you’re always away from home for a long time anyway.

“Stephen and I had always decided to settle in South Africa but after the last season of Dancing with the Stars in Ireland, we fell in love with it and there’s so much opportunity in the industry there.

“It’s all happened so quickly and we’ve moved within a year.

“Doing the series every year gave us six months in one place and we started really enjoying that feeling of not moving to a different hotel every day.

“We wanted to start growing roots, not in 50 different countries, but in one!”

Kylee and Stephen – who have also both toured with Strictly Come Dancing professional, Giovanni Pernice – hosted a mini photoshoot to announce their big news.

Stephen is hoping to feature on another series of Dancing with the Stars.

Kylee, who would love to be a judge, said: “If the series does come back, Stephen would definitely love to be a part of it.

“Rehearsals usually start in November so I’m not sure how possible it will be for me, but if I can I would love to be a part of it.”

Looking back on her four series on the show, Kylee said it was “so nice” to be able to share it with Stephen.

She said: “I’ve had quite a diverse set of partners on the show.

“With touring sometimes Stephen and I are partnered together, sometimes not.

“But moving into the TV work together has been so nice as we get to come home together and talk through what happened on each day.

“Because the experience takes so much of your time and energy, we still get to see enough of each other which is great.”
