She also plans to elevate him out of the public eye.
“Certainly with my son, I wouldn’t have him on camera for anything. But when it comes to my career and what I’m doing, I’m really open-minded,” she said.
Copeland expressed gratitude to her husband as she is balancing motherhood and her career. In addition to her role as lead dancer for the American Ballet Theatre, she is also the co-founder and designer of an active clothing line called “Greatness Wins”.
“It’s never been easy, but I wouldn’t have been able to do it without a support system. My husband is amazing and he is a great dad. He has been with me throughout my career to help me balance those things,” she said. “But you have to make sacrifices. I don’t go to big nightly events, parties, and go out to dinner. I have to make sacrifices to be able to do all the things I want to do,” shared the dancer.
