'Dancing With The Stars' Pros Sasha Farber & Emma Slater Become US Citizens!

Exciting news for Sasha Farber and Emma Slater – they just became citizens of United States of America!

The Dancing With The Stars pros and couple shared their happy news on Instagram on Wednesday afternoon (December 16).

“I’ve dreamed of this day ever since I was a little boy in Russia watching blockbuster movies. I came to America to try out for a show called @dancingabc and my whole life changed, I proposed to my beautiful wife @theemmaslater on the show , got married, bought our first house, rescued a dog, made so many incredible memories and so many new friends I call my family here in America, and now I get to call America my home !!! I’m so grateful for DWTS for believing in me and giving me a chance. WE ARE OFFICIALLY CITIZENS!!! Now it’s time to bring my mum and dad over to be with us thank you ❤️,” Sasha captioned a photo on his account.

“WE BECAME U.S CITIZENS TODAY! Wow. I can’t believe that I’ve been here for 8 years and it’s been the whirlwind it has,” Emma added on her account. “I’m so grateful, I could never have dreamt where my passion for dance has actually taken me. To the other side of the world from my English life which I also loved, for a wonderful show that changed my life, with a best friend who changed my life @sashafarber1. I remember when I did some smaller dance jobs in the UK when I was 17 and my friends & I would discuss whether the credits of these shows would ever help us get a visa to the US!! But being an actual Citizen of the US? Wow!! Urgh, I guess I’ll stay 😍❤️”

The couple, who have been together for almost 10 years and married for two, received an outpouring of love from their Dancing With The Stars family in the comments!

Congratulations Sasha and Emma!!
