DWTS Pros Jenna Johnson, Val Chmerkovskiy Expecting 1st Baby

Congratulations to Dancing with the Stars pros Jenna Johnson and Val Chmerkovskiy. The married couple are expecting their first baby.

“We got home [from a trip to Cabo] and about two weeks later I was like, ‘Wait a minute, my boobs are feeling very big and very sore. I haven’t started my period yet.’ So I peed on a stick and immediately it just turned positive,” Jenna explained to People magazine. “The shock and just disbelief was insane. I couldn’t believe it because it it wasn’t an easy journey for us to get pregnant.”

“But everybody tells you, ‘When you just relax and you don’t put the stress on yourself, it happens for you.’ That’s exactly what happened,” she added. “I think it was exactly when it was meant to be. Our little baby was created with a lot of love. It all seems so magical and meant to be.”

“Then it hit him and his face … it was priceless.”

As far as sharing the news with Val, Jenna thought of a creative and fun idea.

“I went and I got these little Baby Jordans, these white sneakers,” she said. “I put them in a box that was his size of Nikes. So he didn’t expect anything. Then I put two little pregnancy tests in there. I had been shaking at home waiting for him to come home. So he nonchalantly walked in and he, ironically enough, had a bag of Nikes. I was like, ‘Did you go shopping today?’ He was like, ‘Yeah, I got myself some new sneakers.’ I’m like, ‘No way. I got some too today.'”

“He came over and chucked off the lid of the box and started rummaging through it,” she added. “He looked at the shoes and was like, ‘How small are these sneakers?’ Then it hit him and his face … it was priceless.”

Jenna, close to her second trimester, is due in January 2023. Suffice it to say that the So You Think You Can Dance alum won’t be participating in the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars. But husband Val is ready to go.

Supposedly the reveal is a “People Exclusive” but Jenna has posted the photos on her Instagram without any watermarks. Oops? “Our biggest dream come true yet,” Jenna writes. “Baby Chmerkovskiy coming this January! My heart has grown beyond comprehension while growing this little miracle inside of me. We can’t wait to meet our precious angel.”
