"My son, it's his first birthday today, so I'm so happy that he's here with me," Alfonso said, smiling from ear to ear. "And as a wonderful present, my wife and I decided to get him a little brother or sister."

Alfonso's pro partner Witney Carson had clearly been let in on the good news, but it came as a surprise to DWTS co-host Erin Andrews and the audience who cheered in support.

"We're having a baby!" the actor said excitedly. "I wanted to announce it here on the show because I just wanted to say thank you to all the fans."

This will be the second child for Alfonso and Angela, who got married in October 2012. Their first child, Alfonso Lincoln Ribeiro, Jr. was born two weeks after the couple wed.

Alfonso also has a 12-year-old daughter named Sienna from his first marriage to actress Robin Stapler.

One reason Alfonso and Witney are one of the most popular couples on DWTS is because of his fun-loving style and his revival of The Carlton.
