Vanessa was in the hospital on bedrest when she went into labor just 29 weeks into her pregnancy with son Phoenix Robert.

Vanessa is paired with professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy, while Nick is paired with Maksim's wife and fellow DWTS pro, Peta Murgatroyd.

One in 10 infants are born premature in the US, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but despite how common preterm births are, people often keep their struggles to themselves, which is why Vanessa and Nick felt it was so important to share their story with the world. "Get here as quick as you can, '" said Nick, crying. "I was on the operating bed and I looked up and I didn't know a single face and I remembered thinking I hope the baby's okay and don't worry about me", she revealed. "2017, the year our family was complete, is my most memorable year".

Vanessa went on to explain the fear she had when waking up from surgery. Vanessa was due sometime in spring 2017 and the couple expected another simple, healthy birth, but life had other plans.

Nick, 43, struggled to hold back his tears on the topic too, admitting he'll never forget the moment she called him in a state of panic. "Just make him okay", she added. "I never felt so helpless".
