The famed ballerina, 39, and husband Olu Evans recently welcomed their first baby together, son Jackson, she tells PEOPLE exclusively.
“I have a 3-month-old. But I will be back on the stage in 2023, hopefully, in the fall.”
As Copeland adapts to her new title of Mom, she’s also getting ready to embark on her son’s first travel experience. “We just got Jackson’s passport a couple days ago,” she shares. “So we’re on our way to Corsica this summer in France.”
Despite allowing cameras to follow her for her 2015 documentary, A Ballerina’s Tale, Copeland has kept much of her personal life, including her pregnancy news, out of the public eye.
“My personal life I’ve really kept pretty private my whole career,” Copeland explains.
The American Ballet Theater’s Principal dancer says she plans to keep her son out of the spotlight as well.
