As it turned out, Derek wasn't the only child who followed in the family's footsteps as his sister Julianne has grown her portfolio as a well-known dancer.

The "Dancing with the Stars" competitor's birthday tribute came months after E! Online reported that he and his mother shared a sweet mother-son moment in a video that showed them dancing.

ET Canada reported that the clip showed Mari Anne watching her son at his tour rehearsals for a couple of minutes before the "World of Dance" judge excitedly danced towards her and reached out for her to join him.

The pair seemed content to dance to "Do You Love Me" until the song ended, and Mari Anne can be seen clapping her hands and hugging Derek.

Derek's talent and love for dancing has been in his for as long as he can remember as Heavy shared that all four of his grandparents were dancers.

Even his parents had a shared love for dancing, and they had met when they both partook in the ballroom dancing team at Ricks College, Idaho.

As it turned out, Derek wasn't the only child who followed in the family's footsteps as his sister Julianne has grown her portfolio as a well-known dancer.

Julianne was a "Dancing with the Stars" professional for five seasons, which she won twice.
