Double the congratulations are in order for Kym Johnson and Robert Herjavec — they’re expecting twins! Just one day after announcing their pregnancy, the reality duo admitted that they’re actually having two first babies together. “We waited so long that we decided to double up!” they told People on Dec. 12. “We are very grateful for the blessing of twins.”
Though Kym hasn’t talked about it, it’s likely that she used In vitro fertilization to get pregnant since she’s 41 years old, and twins are often a telltale sign that celebrities have used the process, since they implant multiple eggs to make sure at least one survives. We’re so excited that they’re getting not one but two bundles of joy!
The Dancing With the Stars pro announced her pregnancy just one day earlier by sharing a sweet sonogram photo via Instagram on Monday, Dec. 11. “It’s a thumbs-up!”???,” Kym captioned the snapshot of one of her unborn babies giving a thumbs-up — how cute!
This will be Kym’s first pregnancy and Robert’s fourth and fifth child. The 55-year-old Shark Tank star is already a father to three kids — daughters Skye and Caprice, and son Brendan — from his first marriage to Diane Plese. Robert and Diane, who works as an optometrist, were married for 26 years from 1990 until 2016. Robert and Kym met on Season 20 of Dancing With the Stars and continued dating after dancing together on the show. They later announced their engagement in February 2016 and tied the knot in July 2016.
During a recent interview, Kym hinted she wanted to start a family with her handsome husband a few days after their first wedding anniversary. “We’re sort of just enjoying being married at the moment. But who knows!” she said at the time. While speaking to People, the TV star also revealed details about their anniversary celebration. “Robert’s Croatian, so we went to Croatia,” she said. “It was beautiful. We had a beautiful dinner. We still love to dance, so we had a dance. It was very romantic.”
“In one way it feels like we’ve been married for so much longer than 12 months. In another way, it’s gone by so quick. It feels like we’ve known each other forever. It’s been almost three years since we met. He’s just amazing. We’re best friends, and it’s just easy,” she continued. “One year down, and many more to go!” Congrats again to Kym and Robert on their pregnancy!
