Just yesterday, Edyta Sliwinska officially confirmed via Twitter that she's expecting her first child with husband Alec Manzo. 

And now, the soon-to-be parents can't stop adorably gushing over their baby on the way.

"We are very happy to announce that we are expecting our first child. Our baby boy is due in January and this is truly the most exciting time in our lives," the former Dancing with the Stars professionals, who wed in 2007, tell E! News. "This is something we've been planning for a long time and are thrilled to share the happy news and start our family."

So how's the mama-to-be been feeling as she approaches the final months of her pregnancy?

"I'm feeling great, although being pregnant is not always easy, particularly the first few months," Sliwinska, who competed on Dancing With the Stars for 10 seasons, admits. "I was suffering from nausea and I'm really glad it's over now."

And the 32-year-old dancer, who, unsurprisingly, still looks hot with a baby bump reveals that she has been working hard to stay in shape throughout her pregnancy.

"As my pregnancy progresses I'm getting more and more tired but I still try to exercise or do something physical nearly every day," she shares. "It's important for me to stay in shape not only because of my work but because our baby boy is my first priority. I want to stay healthy for the little munchkin and if it makes me look better and feel more confident, that's an extra bonus."

While Sliwinska maintained a busy schedule in the early months of her pregnancy, the brunette beauty says she's now dedicating all her time and energy to getting ready for the little one.

"I was a little busy for the first few months, traveling and working, but now I'm in a full-fledged nesting mode," she says. "Buying baby furniture, looking for that perfect stroller, car seat, decorating baby room…It's a lot of fun but my head is spinning from all the choices out there."

And the ballroom dancer, who tweeted on Thursday that she "can't wait to be a mommy," is making sure that she's overprepared for their baby boy's arrival.

"Like every parent I want the best for my baby, so lately I've been spending my days reading reviews of all the baby products," Sliwinska shares. "It's addicting…Besides, I'm reading pretty much everything I can put my hands on about pregnancy, child care and parenting. I want to be ready when the big day comes and of course I can't wait to hold that little bundle of love in my arms."

Too cute. Can't wait to meet the couple's little one!
