Jenna Johnson, a professional dancer on Dancing With the Stars, shared an update about her pregnancy with her followers four months out of the baby's due date, which is in January of 2023.
Johnson shared photos from her Utah baby shower on Instagram.
Johnson said on Instagram that Baby Boy was received with such love by his family and friends here in Utah today. Yes, he received his first fedora. He's definitely going to match with Daddy.
Johnson and Val Chmerkovskiy, a professional dancer, have announced that they would have their first child in July 2022. The baby will be born in January 2023, but that doesn't mean there won't be a season of Dancing With the Stars between now and the baby's birthday.
Chmerkovskiy did not attend the baby shower because he is scheduled to perform at Dancing With the Stars rehearsals in Los Angeles.
On August 28, 2022, the parents announced the baby's sexuality.
ITS ABOY!!!! Johnsonwrote on Instagram. Today we are officially halfway there to meet our son. I'm still reeling from saying those words!! So excited to be a boy mom.
Johnson shared a video of telling Chmerkovskiy about the baby.

When he realizes what's inside, he asks, "Are you serious?" he adds, turning to Johnson with a huge smile on his face.
The couple accepted, and Chmerkovskiy picked up his dog.
You'll be a sister! he assures the pup with delight.
