Pregnant DWTS Pro Shares ‘Heartbreak’ After Season 31 Wraps

The “Dancing With the Stars” Season 31 finale has come and gone and many of the pros and competitors are still reeling from an incredible season.

The final aired on Monday 21 November 2022 and featured four couples going head to head for the coveted Mirrorball trophy. Wayne Brady and Witney Carson, Shangela and Gleb Savchenko, Gabby Windey and Val Chmerkovskiy, and Charli D’Amelio and Mark Ballas each completed a redemption dance and freestyle number. All four couples achieved perfect scores on their stroke freestyle.

In the end, D’Amelio and Ballas became the Season 31 champions, with Windey and Chmerkovskiy taking second place. What some fans may not realize is that Season 31 is actually the third season in a row that Chmerkovskiy or his wife Jenna Johnson finished in second place.

In Season 29, Johnson placed second with Nev Schulman, and in Season 30, Johnson found himself in second again, this time with JoJo Siwa. Season 31 marks the first time Johnson saw her husband finish second — and she expressed her feelings in an emotional Instagram post.

Here’s what you need to know:

Johnson did not participate in season 31 of “Dancing With the Stars” because she is pregnant with her first child. However, she helped Chmerkovskiy and Windey more than once – and even choreographed their last freestyle.

Johnson was in the audience several times throughout the season and was a cheerleader for her husband when he went for his third Mirrorball (winning with Rumer Willis and Laurie Hernandez). When he and Windey fell short, Johnson felt “heartbreak.”

“For the past two years you have been in my shoes cheering me on in the finals and being the first person by my side when I walked away empty handed. Tonight I felt what that heartbreak feels like… because I want it so bad for you and know how hard you worked to get it,” Johnson captioned an Instagram post.

Johnson went on to say how proud she is of her husband.

“You radiated light and pure joy every time you took the stage. It was also a pleasure to watch you week after week. Your passion, your drive for perfection, your enthusiasm to ‘make moments’ and make people feel something through your performances make you special. And partly why I fell in love with you in the first place,” she continued, adding, “CONGRATULATIONS ON AN INCREDIBLE SEASON, MY LOVE!!! Now let’s have a baby.

Johnson and Chmerkovskiy’s baby boy is expected in January 2023.

While Johnson and Chmerkovskiy didn’t get the end result they hoped for, they were both praised for their good work for Season 31.

“What a great team you two make! Such an epic freestyle tonight and a great season for both of you,” one comment read.

“I have to say every season that my favorite thing is watching you and Val’s endless support for each other. There is just something so special and raw about you two!! Congratulations to Val for making this season one of the best!! I can’t wait for baby Chmerkovskiy either,’ someone else added.

“Val and Gabby are winners no matter the result! They put such great sincere heart and soul into every performance. i say the [sic] won the season,” a third person wrote.
