Tonight’s the night we get to see Laurie Hernandez make her Disney Channel debut!

The Final Five gymnast and DWTS champ will be guesting on Stuck in the Middle as herself for tonight’s episode, “Stuck in a Gold Medal Performance”.

In the ep, while trying to tap into her Latina heritage, Georgie (Maisonet) has Laurie over for a Diaz family dinner — and yes, it spins out of control. We mean, they’re the Diazes.

“I was so excited to meet and work with Laurie,” Kayla shared exclusively with JJJ.

“She was a pleasure to have on and off set, and we shared so many laughs,” she adds. “When the episode was over we all missed her.. it wasn’t the same!”

So, that’s a sure sign she’s coming back, yes? WE HOPE!

“Stuck in a Gold Medal Performance” airs TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on Disney Channel.

Ethan & Grayson Dolan Take On Gymnastics With Help From Laurie Hernandez

Grayson and Ethan Dolan have just dropped their brand new video — and it’s all about gymnastics, a sport that is just not for everyone…including them.

The Dolan Twins turned to Olympian Laurie Hernandez to help them out in their quest to compete against each other in three events to determine just who was the better gymnast.

The answer is Laurie. Laurie is by far the better gymnast. Sorry guys.

“We fell REALLY HARD. Don’t attempt this stuff at home we’re dumb,” Grayson and Ethan wrote in the notes section of the video.

Laurie Hernandez Opens Up About Being a Role Model After Receiving Fan Mail

Olympic gymnast and Dancing With the Stars champion Laurie Hernandez is a role model to so many young fans, gymnasts or otherwise — and she knows it.

Laurie posted a fan letter she received to Instagram an hour ago, and in her caption opened up about how much she loves her job and appreciates her fans.

The letter she photographed is lengthy, typed, and incredibly sweet. Her fan Meredith talks about how much Laurie has inspired her, how she uses her quotes in her everyday life, and how meeting her was her lifelong dream.

“Since my wish of meeting you came true I am giving you a penny so you can make a wish that will come true,” Meredith writes.

The letter has moved Laurie. “There have been countless times where I wake up and think, ‘Man I’m really tired today,’” she wrote in the caption. “But you know what? I get up with a smile anyways because it’s my job to go and inspire this generation. Getting letters like these make every single day worth it. Please take the time to read this letter, because you can inspire this generation too. Thank you, Meredith.”

She accompanied the post with a purple heart.
