Witney Carson, the “Dancing With the Stars” professional dancer, penned the cutest tribute to her husband Carson McAllister for Father’s Day 2022. This is his second Father’s Day since they welcomed their son Leo in January 2021.
Here is what Witney wrote to her husband of six years:
In a post honoring all the fathers in her life, Witney wrote that she and her son Leo are “so lucky” to have her in their lives.
“Happy Father’s Day to our favorite guys! We are so lucky to have all these amazing dads in our lives! To @carson.mcallister – you bring so much joy and laughter into our home. You are my equal partner in everything and Leo is most fortunate to have you as a father. Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers out there!” writes the dancer.
The post was accompanied by a series of photos of the three together, as well as Witney’s father, mother and stepfather. Unfortunately, Carson’s father, Kevin McAllister, died in 2018 after a battle with cancer, leaving him never able to meet Witney and Carson’s son.
At the time, Witney wrote on Instagram: “After two long years of struggling and tremendous struggles…our sweet Kevin passed away last night.
Although at times it will be excruciatingly painful to live without him, we know that he lives on around us and is our guardian angel wherever we go. We are so grateful for the time we had with him on this earth and we know he is in a better place,” Witney wrote.
She added: “It’s hard not to think, why does my husband have to live without his father? Why do my kids never meet their Poppy? & then I remember the plan of salvation, knowing that we shall see him again…and that gives me peace.”
To honor Kevin as part of their Father’s Day tribute, Witney included a photo of a drawing they had framed showing Kevin their baby boy with Jesus.
It’s been an exciting few months in the Carson-McAllister household. In May, Carson received his mechanical engineering degree from Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah.
“HE HAS GRADUATION!!!! Words can’t describe how proud I am of this guy!” Witney wrote on Instagram. “It’s been six long years of hard work sacrificing me and my career and here he is as a Mechanical Engineering graduate! Today all his professors told me how smart Carson is and I beamed with pride! The sky is the limit for you baby! I can’t wait to see what you will do! We love you!!!!”
And then, on May 16, Witney teased her followers that she was working on a new project with an “unexpected partner,” saying in an Instagram Story, “I just had a meeting with an unexpected partner, but I’m SO EXCITED! More to come.”
She later revealed that she launched her own line of swimwear, Infamous Swim, and her son Leo is one of the models alongside his mother.
The website describes the line as “made from a bold and fabulous fluorescent yellow waffle fabric”, allowing the “entire collection to exude fabulous chic and bring back that retro ’80s glam”.
“Embrace your inner fashionista and elevate your style by bringing back ’80s glam with a refreshingly modern twist with Witney Carson’s Fluorescent Yellow Waffle collection,” the website reads.
Dancing With the Stars returns to Disney Plus in Fall 2022 for its 31st season.
