Wrecked. Devastated. In shock. That’s how we’re feeling right now after the soul we thought were going to welcome into our family in April... has taken a short cut to whatever lies beyond this life. We’ve been through this before, but never this late in the pregnancy, and never accompanied by such a scary, horrific threat to @vanderkimberly and her well-being. Grateful that she’s now recovering, but we’ve only just begun unpacking the layers of this one. Thank you to all of our friends and co-workers (and dance partners) who have shown up for us so beautifully during this time. As many of you have said, “There are no words...” and it’s true. Which is why in a time like this it’s enough to know that you’re there. Grieving AND counting our blessings today.

Based on this early test-screening... Emma and I have decided against doing the worm on Monday’s show 😬😂

Two dances... learned in six days. Countless hours of rehearsal. One shot to do it in front of millions of people, live on television. And so far... zero regrets. Thank you @theemmaslater for being creative and talented and awesome. And to the entire pro cast for your pointers and support and enthusiasm. And to @vanderkimberly for not only making it possible for me to do this, but shining while she does it. And to everyone who keeps voting for us to allow this crazy train to keep on rolling. Two more new dances to start learning today🤩

My oldest daughter watched me dance to a boy band song on stage in front of millions of people tonight. And she liked it so much that we watched it on TV when we got home. And, an actual member of that boy band presided as a judge at my performance... and gave me a 10 for how I danced it. If you had told me ten years ago that any of this would happen... I probably would not have believed you. #dwts

Couldn’t possibly express how much I appreciate all the veterans (like my grandfather) who have served this country, past and present. And their families, and to all the people who serve and help them when they return. Thank you for your service and your sacrifice. Hope we make you proud.💜 #veteransday

I’ve promised @theemmaslater I’d buy her a proper back pad if we make the semifinals, so please... be sure to vote MONDAY at 8/7c (5pm west coast time) by texting JAMES ten times to 21523 and another ten times by clicking the link in my bio during that 1:50 minute window. I can’t have my partner stuffing any more weird stuff down the back of her shirt 😂

The request to re-create week 6’s samba made how hard it was to learn 100% worth it - and then some. ❤️ #dwts

#tbt Yes, it’s a little depressing to know I’ll never crush life quite as hard as I was crushing it in ‘82... but soldier on I must.
