On August 22, Allison Holker Boss took to TikTok to share a video of her and her 15-year-old daughter, Weslie, showing off their dance moves with a remixed version of ‘My Heart Will Go On’ playing in the background. “When your life is a mess but you just trying to vibe,” Holker Boss wrote in a text overlay.
The dance video came as quite a surprise to her followers, considering it’s the first such video of her dancing since her husband, Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss, died of suicide on December 13, 2022 – he was 40 years old when he died. Allison and Stephen were known for posting dance videos on a regular basis.
The mother-daughter duo had a brief back-and-forth in the comments section. Weslie commented, “Lol we’re funny,” while Allison responded, “Hahahha ???????????? love you.” Hundreds of fans took to the comments section to share their excitement and happiness over her return to dancing on social media.
One user expressed how proud tWitch would be to see them dancing again, while several other users expressed how happy they were to see them hittin’ those moves again. Someone couldn’t help but notice how much Weslie’s vibe reminded her of tWitch. “Thank you for this. Made my day. Love you guys.”
Some users offered words of encouragement as the family continues to mourn the tragic loss. Thank you for this. Made my day. Love you guys,” one user wrote in the comments section. The video has been seen by more than 3.7 million people, liked by more than 260,000 people, and had 2,000 comments.
Allison Holker Boss has made a career out of dancing, rising to fame as a contestant on Season Two of So You Think You Can Dance – she appeared as an All-Star on the show for Seasons 7-11 and again on Season 14. Her husband was the runner-up on Season 4 of the show before returning as an All-Star.
The couple first met in 2006 at a mutual friend’s party, but didn’t really notice one another until 2010 when they both appeared on Season 7 of So You Think You Can Dance. They started dating shortly after,, made their red carpet debut in 2012, got engaged in June 2013, and tied the knot in December 2013.
Allison Holker Boss Shares Three Children With Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss
By the time Allison Holker Boss and Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss started dating, Allison was already the mother to a 2-year-old daughter – that being Weslie – from a previous relationship. After the couple got married in 2013, he took it upon himself to adopt Weslie and was the perfect father figure for her up until his death.
It wasn’t until 2016 that the couple had a child of their own – welcoming a son named Maddox Laurel, who is now seven years old. Three years later, in 2019, the couple welcomed another child – this time a daughter named Zaia, who is currently three years old. The family of five took the world by storm.
Earlier this year, Holker Boss discussed the many emotions she feels as she continues to navigate the tragedy with her children. “I still feel like the rest of the world where I’m still shocked. No one’s ready for that moment and there’s no one that saw this coming. No one — and that breaks my heart too,” she said.
When asked how she remains strong during these rough times, Allison Holker Boss said she has no other choice but to be strong – adding that she does it for her children. She went on to praise her husband for helping her learn how to be grateful and how to love, describing him as ‘one of the most magical humans.’
