Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss, wife considered more kids before death

Just weeks before Stephen “tWitch” Boss died by suicide, he and his wife, Allison Holker, discussed plans to expand their family.

The “So You Think You Can Dance” alums — who shared daughter Weslie, 14, son Maddox, 6, and daughter Zaia, 3 — admitted during a Nov. 17 appearance on “The Jennifer Hudson Show” that they missed having a newborn in the house.

“I think we’d love to start trying for another one,” Holker, 34, said at the time.

“We really do [miss it],” Boss added. “I love the little babies. I love ’em.”

He also shared that having more children was “a constant conversation” between the couple.

The former “Ellen DeGeneres Show” DJ’s dream never came to fruition, however, as Page Six confirmed that he died Tuesday. He was 40 years old.

A frantic Holker reportedly told Los Angeles police that her husband had left home without his car, which seemed out of character for him. Shortly after, authorities found Boss dead from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

After the news broke, Holker issued a heartbreaking statement about her late husband.

“It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share my husband Stephen has left us,” she said. “Stephen reads up every room he stepped into. He valued family, friends and community above all else and leading with love and light was everything to him.

“He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans.”

Holker and Boss shared three kids: Weslie, 14, Maddox, 6, and Zaia, 3.
