Dancing With the Stars pro Jenna Johnson recently gave the cutest update on her pregnancy. Within a recent Instagram story, she uploaded a video of her unborn baby kicking as her husband Val Chmerkovskiy, pokes her belly.

Jenna Johnson Shares Video of “Baby Playing Tag” With Dad

If you missed it, Johnson recently published an adorable video of Chmerkovskiy poking her stomach to play with their child. The video brightened everyone’s day as the energetic baby shows plenty of movements inside his mother’s belly.

Johnson wrote “Playing tag with Daddy last night,” in the caption of the video. Even though Johnson saw it as playing tag, a fan commented saying “omg he’s dancing.. like mama and papa.” The future parents are expecting their first baby to arrive by January next year and it is like “a dream come true,” to them.

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.” Johnson captioned in an Instagram post. 

The Couple Cannot Wait to Welcome Their First Child

It is obvious how much the couple treasures their unborn child. Since the couple has announced their pregnancy, Johnson has opened up about her infertility struggles.

“After two years of infertility, and hundreds of negative tests after negative tests, it was heart-wrenching at times to stay optimistic and made me question whether I would ever have this opportunity.” Johnson said. 

The couple inspires others to not lose hope in their journey. After all, miracles can happen.

“I will go into more depth about our fertility journey a little later on, but if any of you out there are struggling to get pregnant, suffering from infertility, or mourning a pregnancy loss … don’t lose HOPE.” She added. 

The couple is clearly happily celebrating each step along the way at this time. Be sure to tune into Dancing With the Stars on Mondays on Disney+ to see Chmerkovskiy and his partner Gabby Windey in the ballroom.
