Alexa and Carlos PenaVega are the latest stars confirmed by ABC to join the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars.
For the uninitiated, Alexa is a former Spy Kid who recently appeared in Nashville, also from ABC. (Synergy!)
Carlos is a former boy bander who performed in the band Big Time Rush from 2009–2013. He also appeared on Nickelodeon’s Big Time Rush — about the misadventures of four boys who decide to form a band — for the same amount of time.
Another fun fact: Prior to their 2014 nuptials, their names were Alexa Vega and Carlos Pena, Jr. They now live and work under their combined their last names.
The pair announced their joint candidacies for the Mirror Ball Trophy from Disneyland on Thursday — Alexa’s 27th birthday.
The happy couple — who will not be dancing with each other, of course — will be competing against such previously announced stars as Nick Carter, Hayes Grier, Victor Espinoza, and Bindi Irwin.
