In the dazzling world of professional dancing, Dancing with the Stars pros Daniella Karagach and husband Pasha Pashkov have twirled their way into the hearts of DWTS fans with their charismatic performances and enduring relationship. Pashkov, a seasoned ballroom dancer and choreographer hailing from Russia, embarked on his dance journey at the age of 11. Karagach, born in Brooklyn, New York, started taking lessons from the age of three. Their love story began in 2009 when they were first introduced by their dance coaches.

Not long after, Karagach and Pashkov's shared passion for dance blossomed into romance, officially marking the start of their relationship in 2010. After four years of dating, the couple married in 2014. As their careers soared, Karagach and Pashkov captivated audiences with their elegance and artistry on DWTS, eventually establishing a dance school program for soon-to-wed couples. The dynamic duo embarked on another milestone in their journey when they announced the impending arrival of their baby girl, Nikita. Throughout their journey, their long-lasting passion for dance (and one another!) has been a delightful undercurrent of their ongoing relationship.
