The past few months have been a whirlwind of emotions for Allison Holker, the bubbly dancer and co-host of “Dancing with the Stars.” Following the sudden passing of her husband, Stephen “tWitch” Boss, in December 2023, she and their three children have been navigating unimaginable grief and the challenges of adjusting to life without their beloved dad and husband.
In an exclusive interview, Allison, ever the source of strength and grace, spoke candidly about a major decision she’s made for her family: moving to a new home. This wasn’t just a change of address; it was a deliberate step towards creating a fresh space where they could begin to heal and rebuild their lives.
“Our old house held so many memories,” Allison shared, her voice thick with emotion. “Every corner, every room… it was all filled with Stephen’s laughter, his energy, his love. It became too much, sometimes. We needed a place where we could breathe, where we could start to find our footing again.”
Choosing a new home wasn’t easy. They needed a space that felt safe and familiar, yet different enough to allow for new beginnings. They ultimately found a house with a warm, inviting atmosphere, filled with natural light and surrounded by nature. For Allison, it was a place that whispered possibilities, a chance to create new memories alongside her children.
“It’s not perfect,” she admitted with a chuckle. “There are boxes everywhere, and the kids are still discovering all the nooks and crannies. But there’s a light here, a sense of hope that wasn’t there before. We can laugh again, without feeling guilty. We can cry, without feeling like we’re drowning. It’s okay to just be in this space, to feel whatever we’re feeling.”
For Allison, this new chapter isn’t about forgetting the past. It’s about carrying Stephen’s memory with them as they build a future he would be proud of. His legacy lives on in their smiles, in their shared love for dance, in the kindness they show each other and the world around them.
“Stephen wouldn’t want us to be stuck in sadness,” Allison said, her eyes shining with a newfound determination. “He would want us to dance, to laugh, to keep living our lives with the same joy and passion that he did. And that’s what we’re going to do, in this new place, one step at a time.”
The journey ahead won’t be easy. There will be moments of doubt, of pain, of longing for what was lost. But as Allison embarks on this new chapter, she carries the unwavering support of her family, her friends, and the countless fans who have been touched by her strength and resilience.
In her story, we find a testament to the human spirit’s ability to heal and hope, even in the face of unimaginable loss. We see a mother’s unwavering love for her children, a family’s courage to face the unknown, and the quiet strength that blossoms even in the darkest of times.
Allison Holker’s new home is much more than just bricks and mortar. It’s a symbol of resilience, a beacon of hope, and a reminder that even in the midst of grief, life finds a way to bloom again.
