Val Chmerkovskiy Feels 'Lucky' To Be With Jenna Johnson

Val Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson had a cute day out in New York City today (December 6).

The pro dancers and longtime couple headed to the Empire State Building to check out the view after visiting the Museum of Natural History.

“I’m tired of fighting this…I know that people and Hollywood are obsessed with romance,” he shared with PeopleNow about going public with their relationship. “I feel like if it’s private, it should remain private.”

Val continues, “But I do realize I’m a hypocrite when I’m on Instagram sharing our vacations and my love for her.”

“I do feel very happy and lucky [to be with her],” he added later on in the video.

When you think about this, it’s actually kind of sad that he felt pressured to go public. We love Val and Jenna (as individuals and as a couple), but hope that we weren’t part of the pressure.

It’s official — The Chmerkovskiy‘s are headed out on tour!

Brothers Maks and Val Chmerkovskiy are bringing Peta and even baby Shai along with them on the newly rebranded MVP Tour, starting in March 2018.

“We’re definitely going to have a lot of wow moments,” Val teased about the tour with ET. “I think ‘confidential’ is more from the side of the honesty you’re going to get on this tour.”

He adds, “This show is going to be honest about how we feel about love, how we feel about friendships, how we feel about family, and that’s what’s confidential. You’re going to get to see us in a way that you haven’t seen us before.”

Peta also opened up about bringing along almost one-year-old son, Shai, with them, “Talk to me the first weekend and we’ll see how we go (laughs). We’re going to definitely have to have a really good setup for him [on the bus].”

“To this day i still apologize to him cause it went straight to the eyes it was an accident i SWEAR,” she responded.
