Oti Mabuse has become a household name since her appearance on Strictly Come Dancing. However, she has frequently referred to her husband Marius Lepure as her “rock” in terms of her achievements.

The couple shared a charming set of images of themselves on Instagram to announce the good news that they are expecting their first child together. They stated that their “year is getting better and better” as they prepare to become first-time parents.

The couple appeared to meet by happenstance when their dancing worlds collided, resulting in a friendship before it grew amorous.

Alongside the post Oti said: “Our ‘yes’ year is getting better and better and so is our little family. We feel finally ready and excited to share our wonderful news. This is new for us scarier than swimming with sharks, jumping off cliffs or even swinging from bridges but the best news we could have ever ask for.

“We love our little bundle of joy so much already… and can’t wait to see what our future will now look like as family of 3 plus leo. It’s been a beautiful journey so far with close friends and family and nearly over but we have learnt a lot a long the way…. Christmas is about to get even louder.”

Marius and Oti were acquainted by Oti’s sister Motsi, who suggested a few men for Oti to try out as dancing partners when she went professional and relocated from South Africa to Germany.

It didn’t take long for Oti to realize she wanted her future husband as her dancing partner because the Romanian dancer was the first and only one to try out – and she cancelled the others.

The Masked Dancer star and her new dance went on to win competitions together but nearly parted ways before their romantic relationship even started.

Oti confessed they “clashed” at first because she wanted to have an equal standing in their dance partnership and she threatened to walk way for good.

“I’m a big personality and [Marius] is a big personality as well. So, it became a bit of a clash,” said Oti on the She’s Just a Dancer podcast.

“There was one moment where he said to me, ‘No. You have to do this because you don’t know what you’re doing. I turned and said to him, ‘Let me tell you what I do know. I know how to pack my bags and leave.'”

However, it seems this was the moment that Mariud fell in love with Oti for her strong personality and no-nonsense attitude. The couple tied the knot in 2014 and Marius actually appeared on Strictly in 2017 during a group dance.

Marius has had a successful dancing career both with and without his wife. He discovered his love of dance at the age of 12 and competed in the TV show Let’s Dance in 2014 and 2015.

Oti and Mariud have competed in various contests together, including the German National Show Dance Championships, where they won gold. They finished second at the World Latin Championships as well.

He is now a director, choreographer, judge, and dance instructor.
