If you’re a Dancing With the Stars fan, you recognized the return of a familiar face foxtrotting with Buzz Aldrin this season. Professional dancer Ashly Costa, 27, who hasn’t appeared since Season 3 when she was paired with Harry Hamlin, took a hiatus because she got married and gave birth to two sons. And this makes Costa the only professional dancer on the show who is a mother.
How did she feel when the show called and asked her to come back?
“I was so excited. It’s fun for me to do what I love to do and then go home and be a stay-at-home mom.”
And what does she think of Adrin’s effort as the oldest competitor in DWTS history?
“I’m so impressed with his motivation and his energy,” she says. “He practices a good four hours a day. I love his attitude.”
Aldrin and Costa survived the first elimination round last night when Shannen Doherty was axed, so we look forward to seeing more of her this season (although let’s face it, the duo isn’t destined to make the finals so make sure you catch their dancing soon!).
