The dancer shares two sons with her husband.

“After giving birth, that pressure of getting into shape to dance again is a lot. I think mentally and physically it's very stressful, and not only are you trying to take care of a new baby and your family and be a good wife, but on top of that you have this pressure to look so good and fit and bounce back. For me, that wasn't good for my mentality, so I had to flip the script and I had to really make sure that I was getting healthy from the inside out, making sure that I took time for myself and not what others expected me to look like," the Dancing With the Stars alum, 30, said in an interview for NEW YOU’s April 2024 digital issue, available on NewYou.com, April 1.

Witney Carson said she didn't let the pressure of bouncing back get to her.

Elsewhere in the interview, the blonde beauty, who is married to Carson McAllister, also shared how grateful she is for having parents who let her dream big.

“I grew up with great parents. They were both entrepreneurs. I remember my mom and dad both creating products and creating their businesses in our little tiny basement, and I watched them have an amazing work ethic to build into these incredible companies. They didn't come from a lot of money. They had to put their time and effort into it, so I had a great example of work ethic and that translated to how I work," she explained.

The TV star is thankful for her parents for letting her pursue her career.

Fortunately, everything worked out in her favor.

“So I had applied to college, I had my classes already, so that was kind of our plan until I auditioned for So You Think You Can Dance. The night before, my mom was like, 'You know what? I think you should do this. I think you should go and just try and see what happens and try to make your dreams happen.' I did, and then it led me here, so I'm so grateful and blessed that was the decision we made," she recalled.
