Daniella Karagach, Pasha Pashkov 'Dancing with the Stars' Pros Expecting First Baby

Daniella Karagach, and Pasha Pashkov will be parents soon.

Daniella Karagach and Pasha Pashkov, two DWTS competitors, announced exclusively to PEOPLE that they are expecting their first child in May.

"We've wanted a family ever since we've gotten married and we've been married for eight and a half years, so we are more than ready to have a baby," Karagach, 30, tells PEOPLE.

"We wanted to start planning this year and it just so happened that the timing was absolutely perfect. I actually found out I was pregnant on [DWTS season 31's] premiere day."

Daniella Karagach, who married Pasha Pashkov, 36, in 2014, says her season 31 partner Joseph Baena didn't know about her pregnancy, but "he's a sweetheart and he really was super gentle with me, although he didn't know," according to an exclusive report by PEOPLE.

The native of New York City claimed to have had "no nausea since day one" and to have only become slightly more conscious of her body while competing in her first trimester.
