"Richmond, Virginia, I love you guys. I unfortunately can't be there at the show tonight," the season 23 DWTS champion explained. "As all of you know, I'm expected to be an uncle very soon. My [future] sister-in-law Peta Murgatroyd is literally delivering the baby as soon as I'm done with this video, hopefully. But I'll be back on the road tomorrow and somehow I promise to make it up to you, Richmond. Thank you so much and enjoy the show."

Val's caption for the brief video was equally sweet. "Amazing news. I'm about to be an uncle!" he wrote. "Family means the most to me so I'm with them now. Sadly I'll be missing the show tonight in Richmond but I'll be back in Lancaster tomorrow. Love y'all. and appreciate you understanding. I'll make it up to you."
