A perfect score and a baby announcement? Talk about an overwhelming night for Team Sharnick — in the best way possible. In this week’s exclusive blog from Sharna, she reveals that she saw a whole different side to Nick this week, and that she (of course) can’t wait for another Backstreet Boy to be born.
Dancing with the Stars is always emotional but when babies get brought into it, it’s a whole new game. That’s what happened for #TeamSharnick on the Nov. 2 episode, when Nick Carter and wife Lauren Kitt revealed they were expecting a baby boy. In our week seven blog from Nick’s partner, Sharna Burgess, we learned that having a perfect score was just one small reason it was such a moving night — and that next week’s going to be quite the adventure.
Oh my goodness, what an incredible and unforgettable night on DWTS!!! Creating that dance for Nick and his wife, Lauren, this week, there was a lot of pressure to find how to tell their beautiful love story and the fact that their expecting their first baby. Nick put his heart and soul into the dance this week and it really came across. From the very first beat and the very first step, I knew that Nick was fully invested in this routine; I was safe, I was taken care of as a dance partner; he was engaged with me all the way and was the perfect partner tonight. The judges gave us a perfect score – our first of the season – and Julianne even commented that tonight, he was a real dancer.
Nick really brought all of his emotion to the dance tonight. He didn’t want to watch the video package that aired just before the dance because he didn’t want to get too overwhelmed, but I saw in his eyes and in all of those moments as we were dancing the love that he has for his for his wife and how much this meant to him. And at the end of the dance when he dropped to one knee because he was so overjoyed with everything that’s happening in his life — it was truly a beautiful moment! All I could do was try to find Lauren to go there and be next to him; they are just such a beautiful couple and love each other so much. I am so happy about the news that a new Backstreet Boy is coming to the family; what an amazing reveal! I know he will be an incredible dad, and I’m so excited for him to start this new journey with Lauren. As his coach, I couldn’t be more proud of him, and as his friend, I couldn’t be happier for him.
Next week, we have a whole new challenge that we have never before on the show where we have to travel to another city with another couple. We have to watch a show, and create another number inspired by it to perform next Monday as well as an individual competition dance so it going to be really intense and a lot of pressure, but I know Nick can handle it. We’re also really excited to be working with this particular couple (to be announced!) as we absolutely adore them and they are so talented.
Thanks again to all the #TeamSharNick fans for all their continued support!!
