And we now know that first child will be a boy!

On Monday night's episode of "Dancing," Nick followed up a perfect score on the dance floor with the perfect post-routine reveal.

With Lauren's help, he opened a giant sparkling box and blue balloons floated up to the ceiling.

"Aw! It's a Backstreet boy!" "Dancing" co-host Erin Andrews exclaimed.

“We’ve been trying to have a baby for about a year now," Nick said during the show. "It’s been rocky, to be quite honest with you. There have been times when we thought it wouldn’t happen."

Lauren previously suffered a miscarriage.

But now she's 16 weeks pregnant, and they're both thrilled.

"It still seems unbelievable," he added.
