Jenna Johnson gave birth to her first child, a son with fellow Dancing with the Stars pro Val Chmerkovskiy on January 10. The couple posted an announcement on Instagram alongside a photo of Val clasping Jenna and the new baby’s hands.
Now, after a week, Jenna posts a tiny glimpse of the back of her son’s head. But she promises she’ll post more details when she’s ready.
“One week with my little love,” Jenna wrote in the caption. “I promise I will share more when we are ready. Trying to soak up all of these precious moments and transition into parenthood the best we can. I do finally understand what everyone has been preaching to me… “You think you know what love is, and then you have a child.” My heart is forever his and my world is so much brighter with him in it.”
The couple have yet to reveal the baby boy’s name, or any other details. However, Jenna is wearing a necklace with the letter “R” around Jenna’s neck… About the name, Jenna told People magazine last year, “We actually have had a boy and a girl name picked out for three years now,” the expecting mom shared. “Val actually picked out the name for our boy, so we have it.”
However, Jenna elaborated, “I really want to see him first before we make that decision,” she added. “So far we have one that I’m pretty set on, so who knows, it might switch the day of.”
Meanwhile, Val’s brother Maksim Chmerkovskiy and his wife Peta Murgatroyd recently announced they are expecting their second child later this year. After a miscarriage and a round of IVF, Peta finally got pregnant, right before her second round of IVF.
