Jenna Johnson publically reveals her son’s name and face for the first time
Many DWTS fans suspected that Jenna and Val would share more about their son as he approached his one-month milestone. And it seems that’s exactly what happened. Baby Chmerkovskiy will be one month old this week, so the couple finally chose to reveal his name and face.
“Rome Valentin Chmerkovskiy ✨” Jenna Johnson revealed her son’s name in a new Instagram post, which also fully showed the newborn for the first time “Cannot believe it’s been 4 weeks of being completely infatuated with you. Thank you for bursting my heart wide open and showing me what unconditional love is. Mommy and Daddy love you so much!!!! **the left dimple melts me every time 😭”
The dancer’s friends and followers flocked to the comments to congratulate the couple on their baby.
“CANNOT HANDLE HIM! Love you Rome! You’re the best mama,” Witney Carson wrote in the comments.
“Baby Rome 😭😭😭” Val’s Season 31 partner Gabby Windey added.

The Chmerkovskiys plan on raising their son as bilingual
Jenna Johnson was born and raised in Utah, but Val Chmerkovskiy grew up in Ukraine. Since Val and his family speak fluent Russian, the couple decided they want their son to be bilingual.
In an Instagram story, Jenna explained that she uses language-learning apps to work on her Russian so that the whole family can speak it together. She said that it was important for Val to share his heritage with baby Rome, but she didn’t want to be left out.
Rome Chmerkovskiy isn’t the only little one joining the family this year. Val’s older brother Maks Chmerkovskiy and his wife Peta Murgatroyd are also expecting a new baby, which will arrive this June.
