Holiday Specials on Freeform Hosted by Stephen “tWitch” Boss and Allison Holker! Yes, our favorite real-life celebrity couple is making wishes come true thanks to Freeform. Thanks to Disney for inviting me on the #25DaysofChristmasevent, all opinions noted here forth are my own. We had the opportunity to sit and speak with tWitch and Allison and asked about their love, working together and the two holiday specials on Freeform, Pop-Up Santa Holiday Special and Disney’s Fairytale Weddings.
Their Love and Working Together
(Stephen Boss/Twitch): So we’ve been married now, we’re going on five years on December 10th. We’ve been together since 2010, so we’ve been together eight years. We met on So You Think You Can Dance. And we shared a dance. I know this sounds, like, it’s out of, like, a fairy tale because it, it’s our fairytale.
Allison: We were both contestants. I was on season two; he was on season four, and then they do what’s, like, the All-Star season where they brought some of the other contestants back to perform with the new contestants, and then that’s when we met. But, like literally, we’d never gone on a date; we never really had a real conversation because I was so shy to talk to him because I had a crush. And- but we shared, we shared a dance at a party, and we’ve been together ever since. It’s honestly such a dream job that we get to work together everyday. We love being together and we know this is a dream for many couples, so we realize how fortunate we are.
Pop-Up Santa Holiday Special #PopUpSanta
Allison: We actually held a baby shower for seventy-five women that were all pregnant, and we surprised them with a baby shower that was just super epic. We gifted them with everything that they would need. And these women are all from the army. These are all women, you know, they look very hard and they live these lives, you know, they’re so brave.
They go through so much that I will never fully understand myself, you know, with sending their loved ones away, and going all these, long terms, by themselves with their kids.
Yes, and so we got to really surprise them. They had no idea. They thought they were just part of a documentary, but we surprised them with a baby shower that was celebrating them, and just giving them the love and also support. We made a video of them that was just all love and like, you guys are amazing.
We had special celebrity cameos that helped give these things away- Misty Copeland; DeMarco Murray, but I mean, but you all, it’s just like tears, and tears, and tears.

Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings: Holiday Magic #DisneyWeddings
tWitch:Disney’s fairytale wedding, Holiday Magic, we did for the first time last year, and the producers gave us a call. They wanted us to come and host the show, and we felt completely honored, because we, I feel like we have a very happy marriage. Being able to be a part of other people’s lives and, like, celebrate their wedding, which is like one of the biggest things that they’re gonna experience in their lives is really special. Like, it really bonds us with these people, and we really get to know them and we get to be a part of this, like, monumental moment with them, and it kinda makes us feel that we relive our marriage and, and our wedding.
Allison: We started hosting actually together for the first time with Disney’s Fairytale Weddings, and it’s so cool to be able to work with your partner. I would think that we have a very happy marriage. Our wedding was epic. It was amazing, and we really do love each other, and we get to be a part of these moments with other people, you know? So we get to look back at our wedding, like, you remember when we did this? And we’re able to look at our marriage and give advice to them about how we live our lives and so it’s just kind of like a reminder of how much love we have for each other.
