ETonline EXCLUSIVE: 'DWTS' Pro Edyta Sliwinska Dishes on Life After Baby No. 2: 'You Get

Former Dancing With the Stars pro Edyta Sliwinska is adjusting to life as a new mom of two after welcoming daughter Leia Josephine just two weeks ago.

ET recently caught up with Sliwinska over the phone, while she took a well-deserved break from her busy household. The pro dancer dished on everything from Baby Leia's birth story (her husband was at Home Depot when she went into labor) to how she plans to regain her dancing figure and whether there's a third child in her future. The biggest change so far, she says, is time management, comparing every time the family tries to leave the house (a rarity, because Leia is so young) to a scene from the 2014 film Neighbors.

“The parents [Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne] were going out and they were like, 'Oh and the wipes.' 'Oh and a change of clothes.' 'Oh and a snack.' And by the time they grabbed all the stuff that they need, they were so tired that they fell asleep and they never went anywhere. It was hilarious and so true,” Sliwinska shared with a laugh.

Edyta gave birth on her due date, but they barely made it to the hospital in time.

Leia Josephine Mazo was born right on time, on June 18, 2017. Edyta and her husband, former DWTS pro champion Alec Mazo, had been preparing for their little girl’s arrival for weeks, changing plans and sticking around the house the week before her birth, but that day was an exception.

“My husband brilliantly decided to fix a broken toilet in the upstairs bathroom. So he’s like, ‘Going to Home Depot, buying a toilet.’ And I’m like, ‘OK that’s fine’ – I didn’t have any contractions,” Sliwinska recalled, saying her labor started soon after Mazo left the house and she frantically called him to head home.

For the rest of Leia's wild birth story, head to!
