Otlile “Oti” Mabuse (33) and her husband Marius Iepure (41) have become parents for the first time. The couple announced this on Christmas Day (December 25th) with a sweet snapshot of their family happiness on Instagram. "Merry Christmas. We wish you all a wonderful holiday season and special memories with your loved ones," says a picture in which Mabuse holds their child and Iepure holds the family dog in his arms.
The “Dancing On Ice” juror and younger sister of “Let’s Dance” juror Motsi Mabuse (42) has not yet announced when exactly the baby was born, what it is called and what gender it is.
At the end of August, the two also announced via Instagram that they were expecting a new addition to their family. At the time, the couple wrote about several couple photos in which the dancer's baby bump in the pink jumpsuit was clearly visible: "We finally feel ready and excited to share our wonderful news. It's new for us, scarier than dealing with sharks swimming, jumping off cliffs or even swinging from bridges, but it's the best news we could ever ask for."
The couple can hardly wait to see what the future will look like as a family of three and their dog Leo. "It's been a wonderful journey so far with close friends and family and it's almost over, but we've learned a lot along the long road." The couple was sure months ago: "Christmas will soon be even louder."
Sister Motsi was particularly happy about the new family member in advance: "We're growing! We're so incredibly happy for you! I'm going to be an aunt! More love, more family!" she wrote about a picture together with her sister.
Oti Mabuse, who has already appeared as a professional dancer on the British dance show "Strictly Come Dancing" and on the German counterpart "Let's Dance", has been married to Marius Iepure since 2014. In 2017, the couple announced the end of their dance career together.
