Davy Russell is living his best life on the Dancing with the Stars stage.

But he has shared that his journey has benefited his family more than it has himself!

Last week, he dedicated his Dedicated Dance to his wife Edelle.

Speaking to VP Magazine he revealed that she was the one who “pushed” him to sign up for the show.

Joking about his intense rehearsal schedule, he says: “She’s used to it.”

“But she was the one who pushed me to do it. She has to suffer the consequences!” he laughs.

“She is really supportive, she loves the show itself. But the real beauty is the kids.

“I’ve never seen them so excited. Every single weekend they’re doing posters, they’re making art, they’re using their minds. They won’t go to bed until they do their own routines! They love it! They’re all interacting with each other a lot more.”
