Dancing with the Stars couple Jenna Johnson and Val Chmerkovskiy announced that their first child will be a boy on Sunday.

The Cali-born, Utah-raised 28-year-old and the Ukrainian 36-year-old shared a slideshow of themselves barefoot shooting off blue confetti cannons.

Congratulations! Dancing with the Stars couple Jenna Johnson and Val Chmerkovskiy announced that their first child will be a boy on Sunday

Today we are officially half way there to meet our son. Saying those words still makes me emotional! So excited to be a rich mom. New YouTube coming tomorrow with all the [details].’

Johnson showcased her burgeoning baby bump in a green fringed tank top and matching maxi-skirt while Val (born Valentine) sported a black beanie, white tank, and khaki pants.

It was a surprisingly low-key gender reveal for the married couple of three years, who stood in a corner of a sun-lit room seemingly without any party guests.

However, the Being the Ricardos dancers did receive congratulatory comments from their celeb pals Ricki Lake, Normani, the Bella Twins, Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss, Kenya Moore, and Heather Morris.

Jenna and Chmerkovskiy – who began their romance in 2015 – first revealed their baby news on July 15 after suffering from ‘two years of infertility.’

“We actually stopped trying to conceive for about six months to mentally/emotionally give ourselves a break,” Johnson admitted.

‘So the shock, disbelief, and sheer joy in this moment is a memory I will never forget.’

The Jo+Jax collaborator added: ‘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 at times, but don’t give up on yourself and your precious baby! It will happen.’

But yes, I know that Val is definitely excited to come back for another season and I think that he’s in the best shape of his life right now. I’m not sure what happened to him [this year]but he is snatched.’
