EXCLUSIVE: Edyta Sliwinska Returning for 'Dancing With the Stars' Season 22

ET caught up with Sliwinska in May, where she opened up more about her daughter's moniker.

"It's very funny, but we actually, with a second child, you kind of know the drill, and you're kind of more relaxed, so we don't have a name. However, my older son insists it's going to be baby Leia, and I have no idea why, because he has never seen Star Wars. But, you know, we don't hate that name, and if we don't come up with anything better, it is going to be baby Leia," she laughed. "So, there you go."

As for whether Sliwinska will be returning to DWTS anytime soon, she said, "never say never, but with two children it may be difficult!" 

While Sliwinska just gave birth to baby No. 2, it seems another love connection is brewing at DWTS. See the latest on Val Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson's romance in the video below.
