SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC 4 Utah)- A Utah woman finds love on the dance floor. The professional dancer represented the Beehive State in the first few seasons of Dancing with the Stars. Ashly DelGrosso, now Ashly Costa, met the man of her dreams who was also working on the show, but behind the scenes. Now, they reflect on their romance and the years ahead.

The Costa Family sits together on a comfy couch in their Utah County home watching a show with special meaning.

“I came to the show with this mindset I'm not going to date anybody I'm focusing on my career,” said professional dancer Ashly Costa.

Ashly Costa was on the first season of Dancing with the Stars. And the stars aligned to meet her now husband Mike who worked as a photographer and a producer on the show.

“We had all seen the cast and we knew who we would be working with so I was excited to see Ashly for the first time for sure,” said former Dancing with the Stars photographer Mike Costa.

The two worked for long hours together and realized there was something more than a friendship brewing. A phone call sealed their fate.

“My camera guy is the cutest guy and she ironically said wouldn't it be weird if you married him? Turned out a year later we were actually getting married,” said Ashly Costa.

They married in 2006 after Ashly wrapped up the third season.

“We knew when we knew. That was it. I met the person I was going to be with for the rest of my life,” said Mike Costa.

Fast forward seven years later; three little Costas joined the family.

“It's fun to see the kids who got her genes because of a couple of them have natural rhythm and they got that from their mom for sure,” said Mike Costa.

While Ashly continues dancing, Mike started a new career in sales. But both still watch the show wondering if it’ll bring about another romance.

“You can tell by the chemistry who's probably dating. But this season I don't think. I don't know anything. This season I don't think so,” said Mike Costa.

Ashly and Mike are the only successful couple to come out of a Dancing with the Stars romance. Ashly Costa says she would consider returning to the show.
