"DWTS" Pro Kym Johnson Reveals The Genders Of Her Twins

Last year, Christmas came a few weeks early for Dancing With The Stars pro Kym Johnson and her billionaire hubby, Robert Herjavec.

The dancer and the Shark Tank star shared a very sweet announcement on social media to let their fans know that they were expecting their first child together.

On December 11, 2017, Kym shared an adorable photo of an ultrasound featuring a fetus giving a thumbs up.

"‘It’s a thumbs up” 👍🏻🤰💕,'" Johnson wrote in the caption.

"Being pregnant is such a special experience and I'm truly so excited to be a Mum!" Kym later wrote on her website. "It's just so great to see how your body takes over and changes everyday. My advice to any mum-to-be is to stay positive and as stress-free as possible."

She added, "I'm so grateful to everyone for their love and support—especially my husband, Robert! I can't wait for this new chapter in our lives."

A few months after sharing the happy news, Kym and Robert dropped an even bigger bombshell: they will be welcoming twins.

"We are truly so excited and can't believe that we will get to meet our two little bundles of joy in a few months," Kym wrote in a blog post. "When you get pregnant, it's such a big feeling, right? You're surprised, happy, nervous—all at the same time!"

While this will be Kym's first foray into motherhood, Robert is already an experienced parent. He shares three children, daughters Caprice and Skye and son Brendan, with his ex-wife.

Nonetheless, he is still looking forward to being a dad again.

"Robert is so excited for the babies and has been a really supportive husband," a source close to the couple shared with E! News. "They are looking at this as a miracle and are completely overjoyed."

Over the last few months, Kym has been sharing tidbits about her pregnancy on social media and her website, including her fitness routine and diet. This week was no different when it came to updates.

"In the beginning I had to have French fries," Kym told People. "Now there’s not much room in my belly so I have to have small meals. But I’ll indulge in ice cream — I rest the bowl on my belly!"

Kym and Robert also finally revealed the sexes of their babies!

Queer Eye For the Straight Guy alum Carson Kressley threw the mom-to-be a surprise two-in-one baby shower and gender reveal party. The Kym later took to Instagram to share photos and videos from the party, unveiling the sexes of the babies.

Although Kym, 41, and Robert, 55, have been sharing many details about their unborn babies, they wanted to keep the sexes of their "miracle" babies to themselves for a while.

Finally, surrounded by their family and closest friends, the couple revealed that they're being blessed with the best of both worlds.

“We’re so excited to finally share with everyone that we are having a boy and a girl,” the expectant mother wrote in the caption of an Instagram video featuring the pink and blue balloon and confetti-filled reveal.

Kym also shared photos from the happy day, in which she's seen posing with friends, including her fellow DWTS pro Cheryl Burke.

Now that Kym knows the sexes of her twins, she's been busy preparing for their arrival.

"I’m doing the nesting thing," she said. "We did a class about the psychology of raising twins. It was fascinating. They talk about making sure they have their own identity and you don’t dress them the same all the time."

"In the nursery, I’ve got a Halo Bassinest where they can sleep in it together! It’s been interesting figuring out what I need two of, what I need one of. It’s a lot!"

Despite the challenge that awaits them, Kym and Robert, who got married in 2016 after falling in love during DWTS rehearsals, are "just excited to meet them."

"It’s such an amazing blessing," Kym added.

We can't wait to see the adorable photos of the Johnson-Herjavec twins! I wonder if they have picked out names already.
