Congratulations are in order for a past winner of The Voice and her boyfriend!
Former Curly Sue star Alisan Porter won over America’s hearts when she earned a four-chair turn during blind auditions for Season 10 of The Voice. She ended up choosing Christina Aguilera as her coach.
Christina coached Alisan all the way to the finale, where she was eventually named the champion of the season. She made history on the show by being the first contestant to win with a female coach.
Alisan was already a mother of two when she competed on The Voice. Her son, Mason Blaise, was born in July 2012, and her daughter, Aria Sage, was born in May 2014. She shares the two kids with her ex-husband Brian Autenrieth, who she split from in 2017.
The Voice winner later began dating dancer Justin de Vera. In April, the couple happily announced they were expecting their first child together:
“We always knew you would join us,” Alisan wrote next to a snapshot of her holding up a sonogram photo while her kids and Justin huddled around her. “We dreamt of you. We talked about you. We felt you just outside the realm of reality. But, now you’re here. We are all so excited in our own way. For me, I wasn’t sure I would ever experience this again. Motherhood is the most sacred role of my life and I feel so incredibly grateful to do this once again.”

Alisan and Justin found out they were having a girl, and she was due to arrive in November. But their baby girl decided to come a little early!
On Friday (October 21), Alisan announced that she gave birth the previous day (October 20). She shared a precious photo of her holding her baby girl. Proud papa Justin stood behind them and smiled.
Alisan revealed that she and Justin named their daughter Shilo Bee. “She is a slice of heaven and we are very in love,” she said.
You can see Shilo’s first photo below. She’s a little darling!
Congratulations to Alisan, Justin, Mason, and Aria on their new addition!
