Witney celebrated the big milestone with her DWTS family, including fall 2014 partner Alfonso Ribeiro and his own family. She shared a cute photo with Alfonso’s son, thanking her partner and his wife for their gifts. “My little man surprised me w/balloons & cupcakes at rehearsal. I think I'll keep him. Thank you to my second family@therealalfonsoribeiro@angelaribeiro224."
Alfonso, aka Carlton on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, had another super cool gift for his pro partner, though, which Witney shared in this tweet:
Oh my freaking heck, @alfonso_ribeiro got Will Smith on the phone & he just wished me happy birthday. WHAT JUST HAPPENED.
Awesome! It would’ve been even cooler if he showed up to her b-day party in person, but a phone call is pretty amazing on its own, and Witney was clearly thrilled.
Wit did have a birthday event at The Conga Room in L.A., and shared the photo above with some pro friends — including Mark Ballas, Jenna Johnson, and a sweaty-looking Val Chmerkovskiy. “Couldn't have asked for a better birthday!!” Witney wrote with the pic. “Thank you@congaroom & all my lovely friends who made my 21st birthday special! I feel so loved.”
Derek Hough was also one of the pros at the party, and The Conga Room shared videos of D on stage, giving a shout-out to the birthday girl and playing some drums. Watch one video below. The man has talent.
Happy b-day to Witney, and congrats on what is shaping up to be a pretty great year. Here’s to many more!
