The So You Believe You Can Dance alum added: “My little Leo, I enjoy you more than words can express.

Carson’s father passed away in March 2018 after fighting cancer for 2 years. Following his passing, the dancer paid tribute to her late father-in-law, noting how tough it would be to one day have kids who would not know their grandpa.

” Although it will be extremely uncomfortable sometimes to live without him, we know he resides on around us being our guardian angel wherever we go,” she captioned a black-and-white picture of the couple with her late father-in-law at the time. “It’s difficult not to believe, why does my hubby need to live without his father? Why do my kids never learn more about their Poppy? & then I remember the Plan of Redemption, to understand we will see him once again … which provides me peace.”

The Utah native continued: “I know Kevin is getting our kids ready to come down to fulfill us– he’s probably spinning them around on the floor right now, over and over once again up until they weep of laughter!

The brand-new mama revealed the arrival of Kevin Leo on Monday, January 4, after having an “unanticipated C-section” and 24- hour labor.

” We are all healthy and well,” she wrote along with an image of her and Carson’s hands holding their kid’s fingers. “We are so grateful & we’ve been absorbing every moment with our perfect angel young boy. Thank you for all the prayers!”

The expert dancer shared a video from the first 24 hours with the couple’s baby, including video footage from the healthcare facility and Carson holding Kevin Leo shortly after his birth.

” Everybody tells you how special bringing life into this world is however you never know precisely what they imply till it takes place to you.

The new parents revealed in July 2020 that they were expecting their first child together. The high school sweeties, who began dating their senior year, tied the knot in January 2016, after a three-month engagement.
