Lindsay Arnold has announced that she will be leaving Dancing with the Stars!

The Dancing with the Stars pro announced the news on Wednesday and shared that she would be leaving the dance competition series after more than 10 years.

“I wanted to let you all know that I have decided not to be a part of Dancing With the Stars this season,” she wrote alongside a photo of her and her family. The photo features her husband Samuel Lightner Cusick and their daughter Sage Jill, whom they welcomed in November 2020.

Arnold continued, “This has been one of the hardest decisions to make but ultimately I have chosen what I feel is best for myself and my family. DWTS has been a part of my life for over 10 years now and when I say I love the show with all of my heart I mean it!!”

Arnold continued to express the importance of family and putting them first. “Logistically there is SO much involved with making this happen and there is a lot of sacrifice that has to be made that unfortunately just did not feel right for us this time around,” Arnold wrote.

She shared that she and her husband tried to think of a feasible plan, however “none of the options felt good in my heart or felt like the right thing for our lives right now.”

“We are also trying to grow our family and that in itself is a complicated logistical thing as I’m sure many of you understand,” she added.

Continued Arnold: “All this being said it’s so important to me that you understand none of this has anything to do with my love for the show as that will NEVER change and it also doesn’t mean that this is the end for me and DWTS. Although this decision has been so hard to make I feel so much peace about it and know that it is the right thing to do.”

“Thank you all for your continued love and support for me and my family it means so much!” she concluded.

Dancing with the Stars premieres on Disney+ Sept. 19.
