Shark Tank star Robert Herjavec, 55, hasn't had much luck with his relationships. His first marriage ended in divorce after 24 years, and his last relationship resulted in him getting sued by his ex-girlfriend over claims of sexual battery and domestic violence.
At one point, his situation was so bad that he contemplated suicide.
“I just wanted to end it,” Herjavec said.
Thankfully, he sought out help, and started working on getting his life back together. In 2015, while on the mend, he was asked to join the cast of one of his favorite shows, Dancing With The Stars. That's when he met Kym Johnson.
The DWTS partners bonded over their previous heartbreaks and love of dancing. They fell in love during the show's rehearsals, and started dating even after Herjavec got eliminated in week eight.
The pair eventually got engaged, then tied the knot in the summer of 2016, surrounded by family and friends, including former DWTS contestants Joey Fatone, Donny Osmond, and Lance Bass.
The couple recently celebrated their first anniversary and when asked about their plans to start a family, Johnson, 41, replied, "We’re sort of just enjoying being married at the moment. But who knows!"
Now, just a few months after the interview, the couple announced that they're expecting their first child together.
On Monday, December 11, the Dancing With the Stars pro took to Instagram to confirm the exciting news.
She shared an adorable photo of an ultrasound featuring a fetus giving a thumbs up.
"‘It’s a thumbs up” 👍🏻🤰💕,'" Johnson wrote in the caption.
This baby will be the dancer's first child, and Herjavec's fourth. He shares three children, daughters Caprice and Skye and son Brendan, with his ex-wife.
The happy couple haven't made any further comments on the baby news, so it's unclear how far along Johnson is, and how this will affect future appearances as a professional dancer on DWTS.
We'll just have to stay tuned for more updates in the coming days.
Congratulations to Johnson and Herjavec!
