April 11, 2020 - 10:31 / Anna Valenzuela Rosas

Strictly Come Dancing and Let's Dance judge Motsi Mabuse first met her husband Evgenij Voznyuk on the dance floor, where she was born to be. Their chemistry won them dance competitions and ultimately led them to form a beautiful family.

Motsi Mabuse was born on April 11th, 1981 in South Africa during Apartheid where she honed her craft of dance against all odds. She and her sister Oti Mabuse earned their way up the ranks and competed internationally and moved to Germany when she was 18 years old.

She travels weekly from Germany to Britain for Strictly Come Dancing and is asked about her husband's fathering skills. She is very proud of how Evgenij is as a father even saying "The thing is people always feel like when the man has the baby, the guy is babysitting, but it’s not, he’s also the dad."

Evgenij Voznyuk and Juror Motsi Mabuse are seen on stage during the finals of the competition "Let's Dance" on June 14, 2019 in Cologne, Germany.
