The 42-year old explained that he taken a brave step with wife, Kimberly, by having their first ultrasound on camera with his "Dancing with the Stars" crew on Monday.

Although he and Kimberly had suffered three "miscarriages" in-between their five children, James disclosed that they had taken a public ultrasound in order to break the jinx of "senseless stigma" attached to losing pregnancy.

This time, however, they walked out with "tears of joy." Van Dar Beek wrote:

"Happily, for us - this time- we walked out with tears of joy.#AndThenIDancedAQuickStep."


James didn't forget to include the fact that he showed off his dancing steps when they heard the news of a chid. "DWTS" is sure paying off!
