Anna Trebunskaya says she is taking a break from "Dancing with the Stars" in Los Angeles because she is four months pregnant with her first child.

"It wasn't planned, but when it happened, I thought, 'This is perfect -- I'm ready to be a mom,'" the Russian professional dancer told UsMagazine.com. "This is something really good for me and fulfilling, and it'll give me a whole new meaning in life. I'm really looking forward to it."

Trebunskaya, who split from husband and former "Dancing with the Stars" professional dancer Jonathan Roberts last year, declined to name the child's father, but said he is "very supportive."

She said she plans to return to "Dancing" as soon as she can.

"I love being on the show, and I'll miss it a lot, but I'll still be around visiting," she told the magazine. "I'll be their biggest cheerleader."
