They couldn’t wait to become parents — you could see their excitement when they posted pics from their baby shower a couple of weeks ago.

Earlier this week, Chmerkovskiy posted a photo of his fiancée in the hospital, preparing to welcome their bundle of joy.

Chmerkovskiy, who was partnered with Amber Rose on “Dancing with the Stars” last fall, has said that he will not compete on the show's upcoming 24th season. His son should keep him plenty busy in the coming months!
