Jenna Johnson is one happy mama after witnessing her and Val Chmerkovskiy’s baby, Rome, say his first word. The Dancing With The Stars pro recently shared the special moment on social media.

Jenna Johnson Delights Over Her Son’s Most Recent Milestone

Last August 16, Johnson shared the video of Rome saying the melting word, “mama.” Rome was sitting in his play seat as he spoke, displaying his cute and innocent face while on record. Upon realizing her baby’s achievement, Johnson couldn’t help but happily respond.

“I AM NOT OK,” she wrote as caption. “7 months and he officially started saying ‘Mama.'”

Johnson wasn’t the only one ecstatic over Rome’s huge milestone. Several DWTS family members commented on the post to share their reaction to the video.

“The sweetest sound in the whole world!” Lindsay Arnold wrote.

“Yes!!!” Maksim Chmerkovskiy commented.

“Oh my gosh,” Hayley Erbert wrote.

Daniella Karagach and Nikki Garcia also commented on the post, typing heart and sobbing emojis. Furthermore, many fans pointed out how cute Johnson and Chmerkovskiy’s baby is.

Johnson Gives Update on Rome’s Baby Teeth

Last week, Johnson shared a series of snaps showing her bonding moment with her “Napa crew.” For those who may not know, Johnson and Rome relocated to Napa, California because her husband is doing a show with Maks Chmerkovskiy a few nights a week.

In the post, Johnson can be seen spending some time with family, including Maks Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd. They were also with Nikki Garcia and Artem Chigvintsev.

“Last night’s sunset was beyond,” she wrote. “Love this little Napa crew.”

In the first few photos of the post, the DWTS star also gave an update about Rome. Apparently, her 7-month-old is already growing teeth. 

“If you look closely on Slide 3, you’ll see Rome’s 2 bottom teeth making their debut!!!” she wrote.

Johnson and Chmerkovskiy welcomed their baby boy back in January. Rome is the couple’s rainbow baby, as they suffered an agonizing miscarriage in 2021.
