Former “Dancing With the Stars” professional dancer Lindsay Arnold is expecting her second child with husband Samuel Lightner Cusick. The two already have one daughter together, Sage Jill, who was born on Nov. 2, 2020.
Earlier this year, Arnold shared, “”Sam and I are thrilled to announce we’re pregnant with baby No. 2! “I can’t wait to take you along with me on my pregnancy journey and what this means for my new fitness platform, The Movement Club.
The news comes after the 28-year-old revealed she was having fertility struggles. “”When you get a positive pregnancy test and then you start your 🩸 a few days later but your sweet daughter is there for you every step of the way …,” she wrote alongside a video back in August.
The 28-year-old is now 17 weeks pregnant and is showing off her baby bump while soaking up the sun on the beach

Lindsay Arnold Steps Away From ‘Dancing With the Stars’
Shortly before the most recent season of “Dancing With the Stars” began, the professional dancer announced she would be stepping away from the show.
“I wanted to let you all know that I have decided not to be a part of Dancing with the Stars this season,” she wrote alongside a photo of her, her husband and daughter Sage. “This has been one of the hardest decisions to make but ultimately I have chosen what I feel is best for myself and my family. DWTS has been a part of my life for over 10 years now and when I say I love the show with all of my heart I mean it!! This show has changed my life forever and will always mean the world to me.”
She continued to explain the reason behind the decision, writing, “As many of you know my family and I live in UT and in order to do DWTS I have to move myself and my daughter Sage out to LA and leave behind my husband Sam who works full time here in Utah. Logistically there is SO much involved with making this happen and there is a lot of sacrifice that has to be made that unfortunately just did not feel right for us this time around.”
Lindsay concluded by saying she can’t wait to watch this season of the realty competition show and thanked her fans for their love and support.
