Carson joined “Dancing With the Stars” in 2014. She has competed on numerous seasons of the past decade and won her first Mirrorball Trophy with Alfonso Ribeiro on season 19. She has been dedicated to her craft for years before she joined the reality dance competition show.

After giving birth to her second child in 2023, Carson decided to take a season off to stay home with her kids. However, she’s not ruling out a future return to the show.

“I miss it so much and we’ll just have to see where we are in our life next year. And hopefully it works out, but, we kind of live our lives by the seat of our pants, so, I don’t know,” she said during a Q&A on her Instagram Stories in October 2023.

“All the more reason to stock up on my favorite gatorade,” one person wrote.

“Oh my goodness that looks beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!” someone else added.
