Mark Ballas and his wife BC Jean have joyfully welcomed their rainbow baby. The former Dancing with the Stars pro, 37, announced the arrival of their first baby on Instagram. They named their son Banksi Wylde Ballas and he was born on November 5. In the heartwarming photo, Ballas held Jean’s hand while their son’s tiny hand gripped Jean’s thumb. Jean also shared the same image on her Instagram, captioning it with the baby’s name and birthdate.
The couple had previously shared the news of their growing family on Instagram in June. They posted a Reel showing their recent adventures, from beach days to a trip to Disneyland, and ended with the announcement of their biggest project to date – the arrival of their baby.
Ballas and Jean met at a singer-songwriter night at a mutual friend’s house. They exchanged numbers and started dating in 2012. The couple announced their engagement in January 2016 and got married that November. They perform together as Alexander Jean and have released a single called “Rainbow” in which they reflected on a pregnancy loss they experienced in 2022. The song’s lyric video included photos of Jean wearing an oversized coat and showing off her baby bump.
In their social media post announcing the single, they shared that they had lost a baby the previous year and dedicated the song to anyone who has experienced loss. They expressed hope that the song would bring peace and remind listeners that a rainbow isn’t far behind.
The couple’s journey to parenthood has been filled with both joy and sorrow, and they have been open about their experiences, offering support and comfort to others who may be going through similar challenges. Now, with the arrival of their rainbow baby, Mark Ballas and BC Jean are celebrating the newest addition to their family and the love and happiness he brings.
