If you noticed Anna Trebunskaya's name missing from the list of celebrities and professional dancers appearing on the 17th season of 'Dancing With the Stars,' it's because she has a very good reason: She's in the family way.

The Russian dancer felt it was prudent to take time off from the show so she could focus on her pregnancy with her first child.

"It wasn't planned, but when it happened, I thought, 'This is perfect -- I'm ready to be a mom," Trebunskaya gushed to Us Weekly.

"This is something really good for me and fulfilling, and it'll give me a whole new meaning in life. I'm really looking forward to it."

While she wouldn't reveal that father of her child, she did say that he's a "very supportive" person in her life, as is her mother, who was over the moon that she's going to hear the pitter-patter of grandchild feet soon.

Trebunskaya found out she was pregnant four months ago when the last season wrapped, and she had a feeling at the time that her life was about to change.

"I love being the show, and I'll miss it a lot, but I'll still be around visiting. I'll be their biggest cheerleader," she promised of her time off.

And for those of you who want to know her post-pregnancy plans, don't worry! She promises that she is "looking forward to getting back into shape and dancing and bringing the baby on board into the 'DWTS' family."

Congrats, Anna!
