Jenna Johnson is rejoicing in the beauty of life.
In January, the star and her husband, Val Chmerkovskiy, welcomed their son, Rome Valentin Chmerkovskiy, expanding their family to three. Over the moon since his birth, the proud mother allowed a peek into her life as a new mother.
Jenna Johnson Posts Adorable Family Pictures Featuring Son, Rome
On Wednesday, the 28-year-old shared lovely family pictures with her husband and their infant son on Instagram. Commencing the upload, which she captioned, “Life lately 🫀,” the professional dancer who has a social media following of over 800,000 thousand followers, shared her list of ten blessings, among which she mentioned that she has already given a nickname to their baby boy — “Rolly Polly Olly.”
In the picture, the chubby tot lay on some blankets wearing only a diaper. In the subsequent photograph, Johnson showcased an exquisite staircase adorned with vibrant flowers while posing in a white dress and tan heels.
In addition, she paid homage to her family of three by sharing a photo of her, her husband, and their son, referring to them as “my everything,” while she showed off her leaking nipples in a gray crop top and black pants in the next slide.
Another snapshot displayed an intimate moment between the doting mother and her son, where she was captured carrying him in her arms and planting a tender kiss on his forehead. The sixth slide showed the star dancing in a studio with Ukrainian dancer Sasha Altukhov for the first time six weeks after childbirth.
She also shared a picture of looking radiant in a pink dress, simple sporting accessories, and light makeup. A swipe to the left was a video of her beau getting a tattoo, seemingly featuring their son’s birth date, “1.10.23,” in Roman numerals. The ninth slide was a mirror selfie with her pregnant friend and fellow dancer Witney Carson McAllister.
Finally, she brought the carousel to a close with the most heartwarming clip of her baby lying on the floor as she cooed over him, making him giggle sweetly. Fans promptly commented on the post, gushing over how cute Rome was, like this fan who wrote, “Those rolls are everything 😍😍.”
Another user described him as “adorable ♥️,” while a third pointed out how fast he was growing, stating, “Omg, he’s so big already 😍😍😍😍 love it!!!!” A fourth fan described them as a “beautiful family!” and a fifth noted, Love these “life lately” posts you do & OMG Rome is adorable💙.”

After a difficult two-year journey with infertility, professional dancers Jenna Johnson and Val Chmerkovskiy shared in July 2022 that they were expecting their first child. In August, they revealed that the baby was a boy.
In January 2023, their little one made his debut into the world, and The Blast shared that they took to Instagram to announce his arrival together. Johnson posted a black-and-white photo of her beau holding her hand while the newborn gripped her thumb as she captioned the post, “Our world is forever changed 🤍1.10.2023.”

Fellow “DWTS” dancer wrote, “Wowza !!!!! This is perfect! So happy for you all. A new beautiful family begins,” while Nikki Garcia gushed, “Chills!!!! So happy for you both! Sending you all so much love!!!! 🥰✨🤍🙏🏼.”
A month after his birth, The Blast reported that the TV personality couple decided to unveil their son to the public and give him a formal introduction. Johnson shared an adorable picture of her baby boy lying on a white blanket dressed in a burnt orange long-sleeve cardigan, unbuttoned over matching pants, and a white undershirt with tiny arrows.
With a smile, the tiny tot balled up his little fists and crossed his legs while his eyes were closed. A wooden plaque with his name was placed beside him, as she gushed in the caption:
“Rome Valentin Chmerkovskiy ✨✨ I Cannot believe it’s been four 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 🥺😭.”
