Allison Holker is celebrating her son Maddox's 8th birthday.

On Wednesday, the 36-year-old professional dancer took to Instagram to share an adorable birthday post for her son Maddox.

Earlier this month, Holker joined The Jennifer Hudson Show where she chatted about getting back into dance following the death of her husband.

“This place is like home. So walking in here, I have all these memories of my daughter," Holker began, referencing her return to the studio. "My oldest, she’s 15, she used to come here every day after school and do her homework here, everyone would feed her dinner, and it was so wonderful."

"She got to have a very different experience than both kids, right? But it’s such a wonderful place that I really hold dear to my heart. So, it’s a lot to be here but a beautiful feeling.”

During the interview, she shared how getting back into the dance studio has helped bring her family closer together after her husband's death.

"Oh man, dancing with my children. It has been so much fun. They’re so adorable. Yesterday we were playing Just Dance. But it’s fun to have dance as a way for us to connect and express all of these emotions together."

"We were watching Trolls the other day together on the TV and we just got up and started dancing together. And they were bouncing off the couches, jumping off the coffee table," she added. "And it was just like, so much freedom and I could just feel that they still have so much lightness to them. And I was really grateful to see that.”
