Let’s just all admit that Laurie Hernandez is one of our favorite gals. Apart from being wonderfully sassy, she has a smile that’s so dazzling it resulted in a contract with Crest!!

And then there’s the fact that she’s about to be Val Chmerkovskiy’s partner on Dancing with the Stars…basically, this Olympian is killing it right now.

They recently shared some happy snaps from the rehearsal studio, including this adorable photo in which Val introduces Laurie as his partner.

Okay, ready to see Laurie and Val in action? Here we go.

The caption is so incredibly sweet: “still need a lot of work on the frame. but eyyyyy we already got a handshake. so excited for the season. Helping this incredible girl reach her ballroom dreams. She’s is a real gem.”

AWWWWWWWW. And help her he will, because let’s not forget that this guy won Season 20 with Rumer Willis! The odds are in their favor.

And did you see Laurie’s signature smile and infectious laugh featured almost all the way through that video? That’s why we can’t get enough!

Basically, we couldn’t be more excited that Laurie is getting to live her ballroom dreams, because she deserves everything good that the world has to offer. GO GET ‘EM GIRL!
