Happy birthday, Gleb Savchenko!

The professional dancer turned 36 on Monday, the same day as Dancing With the Stars' epic season 28 premiere. Just moments after performing a Cha Cha with his celeb partner, Lauren Alaina, ET caught up with Savchenko where he talked about what it was like celebrating his special day in the ballroom.

"It was all for his birthday!" Alaina exclaimed. "Today's his birthday! He has a pretty good party."

"I love it," Savchenko said. "The best."
