Laurie Hernandez Continues The Tradition & Brings Simone Biles Glitter Shoes on 'GMA'

Laurie Hernandez Continues The Tradition & Brings Simone Biles Glitter Shoes on 'GMA'

Laurie Hernandez didn’t forget about Simone Biles on Good Morning America this morning (March 1).

Back in August, when it was announced Laurie would be joining season 23 of Dancing With The Stars, Simone stopped by with custom glitter high tops for the future winner — and it looks like she continued the tradition!

Simone was surprised by Laurie this morning after the casting announcement, and was gifted with her own glitter high tops. We’re taking this as a good sign!


If you missed it, check out what Simone shared about her DWTS partner, Sasha Farber.

Laurie is also pictured below at the Daytona 500 over the weekend.

'DWTS' Sasha Farber Is The First Guy Simone Biles Has Ever Danced With!

'DWTS' Sasha Farber Is The First Guy Simone Biles Has Ever Danced With!

Simone Biles just made a shocking confession — Sasha Farber is the first guy she’s ever danced with!

The Olympic gymnast revealed this little tidbit just after being revealed as one of the new cast members on Dancing With The Stars.

“I think just generally dancing in heels and dancing with a partner because I’ve never experienced that before,’ Simone shared about what she was most nervous about. “[Sasha Farber] is the first guy I’ve danced with.”

But she shouldn’t be worried at all. We mean, he just placed 5th with Terra Jole in season 23.

And, remember how he stepped in for Derek Hough to dance with Nastia Liukin in season 20? He was amazing!

“It’s going good,” she added of their partnership so far. “I think our personalities go well with each other and he’s very patient so I like that.”

Check out more pics of Simone and Sasha on Good Morning America this morning, where reigning champ Laurie Hernandez surprised her!

DWTS Champ Laurie Hernandez As A Judge On The Show? She's In!

Laurie Hernandez is so ready to land a seat on the judges panel for Dancing With The Stars!

The reigning champion, while promoting her new book, opened up about continuing to dance on the road with partner Val Chmerkovskiy on the tour and possibly coming back to the show for a guest judging appearance.

“[After] being on the show, I know everything that goes on behind the scenes – it gives you such a big appreciation for all the pros and everything that goes into it,” she shared.

As for that judging opp? “That would be really cool! Yes, please! I would love that.”

It wouldn’t be the first time a Dancing With The Stars contestant or pro has returned to guest judge — Redfoo guest judged and joined the following season while Zendaya also came back after placing 2nd in the 16th season.

Laurie is also pictured below during her appearance on The Chew on Friday (January 27) in NYC.

“He can do whatever he wants,” Laurie told People. “I mean, she’s a sweetheart. My mom really likes her.”

As for her own dating life, Laurie said, “I’m still waiting. I mean, I still don’t have time for it, but hopefully I’ll make time soon.”
