On Tuesday, Ballas posted a photo of Banksi on Instagram. He and Jean can be seen holding the baby’s hand as he rests in a blanket. The post’s caption shares the baby’s full name and reveals that he was born on November 5.
Fans wouldn’t have been aware that Jean had given birth, since Ballas continued to post videos after Banksi was born showing Jean pregnant. Not long after Ballas posted the announcement, Dancing with the Stars shared the news during the Season 32 finale.
After Ballas performed an amazing routine with his Season 31 partner Charli D’Amelio (with whom he won the Mirrorball trophy), co-host Julianne Hough congratulated him on becoming a dad. The crowd cheered for him as he smiled.
