It feels like a lifetime ago since we first saw the spunky dancer compete in season 6 of America’s Best Dance Crew, way back when in 2011.
With her crazy blonde curls and creative dance moves, she and her crew, I.aM.mE, won that season and went on to achieve considerable success as individual dancers.
Olivia Gonzales, better known as “Chachi,” was more than just a dancer, however. She influenced a whole generation to wear “Chachi pants” and got droves of people signing up to join dance crews.
More than that, she had a significant presence on Youtube; the former ABDC champion posted a lot of choreography videos (that were very much covered!) and joined the vlogger life on the site.
Though, fans were surprised to see her find true love on the adventure show Ultimate Expedition, with Jukka Dudeson of the The Dudesons fame. Very soon after, Gonzales announced her pregnancy in 2019.
She documented the experience on her YouTube channel, where she showed off her pregnancy journey and shared videos of herself dancing with a huge baby bump.
“As most of you may or may not know, a life goal of mine has been to be a mother and now I can finally say I’m embarking on that journey,” the 25-year-old said on Instagram. “I’m just incredibly speechless and overjoyed!”
She married in September of that same year and gave birth to Sophia Rose Hildén in November!
“I can’t believe how perfect she is and that she’s all ours,” Gonzales said in a post. “Welcome to our family baby girl.”
And, if we didn’t feel any older, the mother of one recently became a mother of two just last week with the birth of her second daughter, Amélie Irene.
“Amélie has been settling into this world just fine. So blessed to have this little bundle,” she captioned a photo of the sleeping newborn.
It’s nice to see where one of our favorite dancers ended up in life. From the 15-year-old with big dancer dreams to a mom of two living her best life in Finland, Chachi has really grown up! And we couldn’t love to see it more.
