Fans of Dancing with the Stars pro Val Chmerkovskiy went wild for a love song he penned for wife Jenna Johnson. He said the song was inspired by Jenna, whom he called his muse and his heart. The song titled “Appreciated” was a poem put to music, where the dancer and musician rapped his feelings of affection.
Val stated in the caption of the share that the artwork, lyrics, and production were written and recorded in his car. He likely worked on the tune there so his wife of one year would not learn of the surprise. The couple has quarantined at their home since the start of the COVID-19 stay-at-home orders in March of this year.
In the image, Val created a split-screen of an image of the couple in bed. He was seen on the left with handwritten lyrics superimposed over his face. On the right was Jenna, bare-faced and slightly smiling, as she leaned on her husband’s right shoulder.
Jenna, also a Dancing with the Stars performer, looked lovely in the image. Her shoulder-length brown hair was pulled up and away from her face, and some of the strands artfully fell around her cheekbones. Her skin was glowing and she appeared to have some light gloss on her lips. Pulled up around her body to cover her modesty was a white comforter.
Above Jenna’s head were little hand-drawn black and red hearts. On Jenna’s face, seen over her eyes and up above her ear was a small diagram of what appears to be a star constellation.

Waking up to our 1-year anniversary like… . I am so grateful that it’s you that I get to call my wife, that it’s you I get to wake up next to, that it’s you I get to love for life, you I get to have and eat my cake too. Rhyme aside, I love you dearly, lucky to have you and hold you near me. What a privilege I’ve been given, you’re gods gift that keeps on giving. I love you. More than I love words that rhyme, more than music more than wine, go to the general and save some time. I love you more than humor, you inspire me to do more, to be true more, honestly I can’t imagine loving you more. But I will, celebrating you daily, you bring something powerful out of me like dairy. I will love you from now till eternity. Happy April 13th, our wedding anniversary. ♥️
Val’s love for his wife was apparent in the song, where he spoke about his deep feelings for her and the love and life they currently share. The couple wed in April 2019 at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palo Verdes, California. They later hosted a second wedding celebration in July of the same year in Jenna’s home state of Utah, where her extended family and lifelong friends were able to celebrate at the Riverside Country Club in Provo.

This has been the best week of my entire life. The pure love I have been surrounded by these past few days is indescribable. . Round 2 of wedding celebrations here in my hometown. We had every single member of my immediate family (22 of us) together for the first time in two years, the entire Chmerkovskiy family made the trip out to Utah, and all my neighbors and friends I grew with. I don’t think I have stopped smiling from ear to ear. Get ready for me to blow up your feed with some of my favorite pics from this week and our reception!! .
