Holker met Boss while working on season 7 of So You Think You Can Dance in 2010. After three years of dating, the couple tied the knot in 2013. The Alabama native adopted Weslie, Holker’s daughter from a previous relationship, before they welcomed Maddox and Zaia.

In December 2022, Us Weekly confirmed that Boss died by suicide at age 40. Holker addressed the Step Up actor’s passing in an emotional statement shortly after news broke of his passing.

We ask for privacy during this difficult time for myself and especially for our three children. Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you.”
