I can’t wait to show fans this production … it’s going to be like nothing they’ve seen me in before.”

The 28-year-old pro dancer was joined by Mark Ballas, Kym Johnson, and reigning champs Alfonso Ribeiro, and Witney Carson.
Val recently opened up about his desire to have children.
“I can’t wait to have kids! My brother also. This is generalizing, but this is why parenting is so important because it’s a reflection of your parents,” Val told Glamour. “My father is my hero, my mother is a saint, and I want to fill those shoes and I want to be a father for somebody else. I feel like having kids is the greatest gift you can possibly have. When I think about the one thing that scares me the most in life, or the one thing that I think about the most, it is the health of my future kids. I just want them to be born healthy, and then everything else doesn’t matter. It’s crazy that I have that train of thought, but that’s where my mind goes. Investing in our education is the most important thing in the world moving forward.”
