The DWTS frontrunner and Fresh Prince star revealed that his wife Angela Unkrich is pregnant with the couple’s second child together.
“My son’s first birthday is today,” Ribeiro said after receiving the judges scores for his rumba, speaking of his 1-year-old Alfonso Lincoln who was at the taping with his wife. “As a wonderful present, my wife and I decided to get him a brother or sister. We’re having a baby!”
The Brooklyn-born actor has been the breakout performer on this season of DWTS. Ribeiro and his partner Witney Carson earned a total of 36 out of 40 points on Monday night’s episode.
But Ribeiro isn’t just focused on dance and his growing family! He recently spoke to OK! about the #BBQ4merica campaign he launched with Wendys’s, a laudable attempt by the star to help to inform the masses about Wendy’s new barbecue pulled pork sandwich.
“It’s a serious campaign but very, very funny. I wanted to be involved with it because I thought that it was just hysterical, especially just the way it was done with Ralph Macchio and Steve Austin,” Ribeiro told OK!. “It’s all to promote Wendy’s new barbecue pulled pork. The funny part of that is my wife was a Pork Queen in Ohio!”
“Being able to come on and do something that’s fun and that people are having a good time with and loving made it really fun. That’s kind of why I really got involved in it. I thought it would be a fun thing to do,” Ribeiro added.
