LOUISE Woodward has quit her job as a trainee solicitor to join her boyfriend teaching salsa classes.
The 27-year-old was one of only four convicted criminals in Britain allowed to practise law.
But she left her Oldham law firm last August just six months in to a two year training contract.
Looking forward to a bright future together, Louise and Richard, 33, confirmed they would like to get married and have children.
Louise said previously: 'I get broody. I'm getting to the right age.
'I cannot imagine not having kids. I always expected I would. I want to definitely and I know Richard feels the same.'
Louise became interested in dance after returning to her home city of Chester following her studies in London and Manchester.
Seeking to reestablish a circle of friends, she went along to a dance class in Christleton but little did she know the decision would lead to romance with instructor Richard Colley.
Now the couple who have been living together in Chester for two years, are planning to take advantage of the interest in dancing generated by shows such as Strictly Come Dancing by releasing a series of dance DVDs.
Louise - convicted of the involuntary manslaughter of a baby in her care in the US in 1997, told Closer magazine: 'Leaving law might not seem like the most sensible decision but that doesn't mean it's the wrong one.
'Dancing is so passionate and exciting; it does not feel like work at all.'
Louise was sentenced to life in Cambridge, Massachusetts, eight years ago for murdering eight-month-old Matthew Eappen. His parents claimed she had slammed their baby's head against a bathroom work surface.
The conviction was reduced to involuntary manslaughter when evidence emerged the injury could have been caused earlier. firstname.lastname@example.org
