Sharna Burgess will not be competing as a pro for the upcoming season of “Dancing With the Stars”.

The professional dancer, who gave birth to son Zane on June 28, took to her Instagram Story on Wednesday to reveal if she would be back for Season 31.

“Hello, I have some news to tell you, because I keep getting so many DMs about it,” began Burgess, 37. “After long conversations and a lot of thinking and really trying to sit down with what was right… made a difficult decision to not to do this year’s season of ‘Dancing With the Stars’. A list has been released stating that I would be a professional and I will not be.”

However, Burgess clarified that she will still be there “in some capacity,” telling fans, “We’re still talking about that.”
