Alex Fevola

Partner: Arsen Kishishian

Charity: Ronald McDonald House

She might be married to a professional footballer, but that doesn't mean Alex Fevola has the same competitive streak.

"Being competitive is also about being confident," she says. "And at this point I'm not feeling too confident about my dancing abilities. But I'm hoping when I get some more training in I'll feel a bit more confident."

The busy mum-of-three gorgeous girls - Mia (10), Leni, three-and-a-half and Lulu, five months - is struggling to find time for her dancing training.

Alex, 33, is an in-demand photographer and owns her own studio in Beaumaris, Victoria. She initially worked in front of the lens as a model, but she gave away modelling after the birth of her first daughter. She has since built a strong reputation as a photographer and make-up artist specialising in weddings.

Following the birth of her second daughter, Alex began working on her coffee table book Snapshot - A Portrait of Success which launched last July. It was a great success, with the initial print run doubled due to the number of orders from retailers.

"My book was definitely a huge highlight and being able to get it together was a real accomplishment for me," she says.

A real horse lover since an early age, Alex has likened her dance training to the dedication needed to ride.

"Riding horses was early starts and very taxing on your body. You've got to put the time in to see the results. It was something I was so passionate about and it'll be the same with dancing," she says.

While her young girls can't wait to see the fancy outfits she gets to wear, she'll be trying on tutus as well when she enrols Leni into ballet classes soon.

Her kids inspired her to choose the Ronald McDonald House as her charity for Dancing with the Stars.

"I really wanted to do something for sick kids. What Ronald McDonald does for sick kids is imperative for those families going through such a tough time. To be able to be close to their child is the utmost importance for a family in that situation."
