Carl Mullan immediately beams when he starts to speak about his wife, Ais.
The pair have been in each other’s lives since they were 11 years old. And the love that they have for one another hasn’t dwindled an inch over the years.
The couple welcomed their first child in August of 2021 before tying the knot the following year.
Now Carl is making waves on the dancefloor, speaking to VIP Magazine, he reveals that he wouldn’t be able to do it won’t his wife.
“My wife, Ais has been incredible. She is a massive fan of the show so she said whatever we need to do as a family,” he tells us.
”She said, ‘How do we make this work? We’re going to make this work.’ Even if I’m feeling a bit tired, she’s like, ‘Okay let’s go. Time to go to bed.’
”She’s so behind me and if I didn’t have that it would be impossible to do the show.”
In fact, she was really the reason that he is stepping into sequin is because of his wife.
”When I said I was doing Dancing with the Stars, I hadn’t even finished the sentence and she was like, ‘You better do it.’,” he jokes.
”She’s so involved and so supportive. I fell in love with Ais when I was 11, we’re only recently married and we have a baby, I have everything I could want in terms of my family life.”
While the schedule of Dancing with the Stars is very gruelling, he promises that his priority will be only Ais once his time on the show comes to an end.
”Ais deserves to be spoiled after this because she’s been an absolute hero,” he gushes.
Dancing with the Stars continues on RTÉ One on Sunday at 6:30pm
