Former "Dancing with the Stars" pro Mark Ballas and his wife, singer/songwriter BC Jean, have welcomed their first child together.

"Welcome to Earth my son Banksi Wylde Ballas 11 / 5 / 23," Ballas shared on Instagram on Tuesday, Dec. 5, alongside a photo of the baby grabbing onto his mother's thumb, and Ballas' cupping his wife's hand.

Jean shared the same pic on her Instagram with the caption, "Banksi Wylde Ballas Joined us earthside 11•5•23."

"Happy one month sweet boy You are so loved," the "If I Were a Boy" songwriter added.

The couple, who tied the knot in 2016, received well-wishes from several in the "DWTS" family.

Ballas' season 31 partner, Charli D'Amelio, wrote in the comments of his post, "CONGRATULATIONS!! SO HAPPY FOR YOU BOTH!"

Carrie Ann Inaba commented on the post as well, writing, "Congratulations Mark! It was awesome to see you tonight but to also learn that you and BC are now proud parents was such an incredible highlight! ❤️❤️❤️ So happy for you all. ❤️"

"I love you Banksi," Julianne Hough added.

Ballas, 37, and Jean, 36, announced they were expecting in June, a year after they said they experienced a miscarriage.
