With the addition of their son to the family, Jenna Johnson and Val Chmerkovskiy now have a family of three to call their own.
A sweet black-and-white photo of the couple, who are professional dancers on “Dancing With the Stars,” was released on January 11 when they announced the arrival of their first child together.
It’s Official, Jenna Johnson And Val Chmerkovskiy Have Welcomed Their First Child
Jenna Johnson and Val Chmerkovskiy are now proud parents of one newborn baby boy. As of January 10, “Dancing With the Stars” pros have welcomed their first child together. “Our world is forever changed,” Johnson wrote on Instagram Thursday in addition to a picture of herself and Chmerkovskiy’s hands as their newborn grabbed hold of her finger. The parents have not yet released his name.
DWTS family members Cheryl Burke and Anne Hathaway congratulated the couple in the comments section, with Cheryl writing, “CONGRATULATIONS!” “Congrats guys!!! So happy for you!” said Joe Amabile, the star of Bachelor Nation, while Tamar Braxton said, “Omg he’s here.”
A recent Instagram post by the new mom revealed that she and her husband, 36-year-old Chmerkovskiy and 28-year-old Johnson, both of whom have been together for a couple of years, have had infertility and have undergone hundreds of negative tests to be able to start a family, at least according to the new mother.
When Johnson unexpectedly found out she was pregnant, the ABC personalities even took a break from trying to conceive for about six months to give themselves a mental and emotional detachment.
The First Time Val And Jenna Announced The Pregnancy Was In July Of Last Year
Announcing in July 2022 that Jenna Johnson and Val Chmerkovskiy are expecting their first baby together, the two of them were already settled into their new routine of Parenthood when they announced they were expecting their first child.
Having gone through two years of infertility and dozens of negative tests after negative tests, the pregnancy announcement marked a turning point for the couple who had undergone two years of infertility. Her first positive pregnancy test was accompanied by a sense of shock, disbelief, and sheer joy that Jenna recalls feeling as soon as she saw it.
At that time, she said, “If any of you out there are struggling to get pregnant, suffering from infertility, or mourning a pregnancy loss… don’t lose HOPE. It may not happen on your timeline, and the journey may rip your heart open sometimes, but don’t give up on yourself and your precious baby! It will happen.”
The Couple Revealed The Gender Of Their First Child In August 2022, And It Was A Boy
As part of their pregnancy journey, the pro dancers of Dancing With the Stars recently hinted at the sex of the baby they were expecting in August last year. “IT’S A……BOY!!!!!!!” Jenna wrote on her Instagram account in tandem with a picture of Val and her popping blue glitter confetti on August 28. “Today we are officially halfway there to meeting our son. Saying those words still makes me emotional!! SO EXCITED to be a boy mom.”
Val also re-shared the pictures with the emoji of one blue heart on the images. Despite just getting married in April this year, the couple has announced that they will be expecting a child in July.
She has been keeping fans updated on the progress of her pregnancy over the past few weeks, and Jenna continues to do so. There have been several aspects of the Mirror Ball champion’s road to motherhood that she has shared on social media, from posting videos of her babymoon and morning sickness to posting a video of the moment she told Val the excellent news.
It has been a joyous time for the family as they have welcomed their new addition. It is our pleasure to congratulate both of them on this outstanding achievement of happiness. If you have any sweet congratulations to share in the comments section, please do so.
