Ginger Zee let ET in on her Dancing With the Stars rehearsal as she goes from working mom to belle of the ball.
The Good Morning America meteorologist and her pro dancing partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, will bring Beauty and the Beast's Belle and Gaston to the dance floor on Monday night for the show's popular Disney night, but rehearsal has been far from a fairy tale.
"My feet still are the worst. They are so swollen," Zee told ET. "Every morning, I can hardly squeeze into my heels to do GMA."
The 35-year-old TV personality danced her heart out during last week's season premiere in front of her husband, Ben Aaron, and their three-month-old son, Adrian. Her spectacular jive was praised as "phenomenal" by judge Carrie Ann Inaba and earned her a score of 23, which tied Nyle Dimarco for the highest score of the night.
Zee credited her husband for motivating her to dominate the dance floor.
"My husband has gone beyond supportive," she said. "He is like, 'No, go more! Go! Push!' He wants me to do really well, so it meant so much for him not only to say that, but for him to be there in the audience too."
Being a new mom has made for some candid moments during rehearsals. Chmerkovskiy got a lesson in parenthood when Zee took a break to use a breast pump in the corner of the dance studio.
"I have a lot of great support from people who are saying, 'Thank you for making it so normal,' because that is what they go through at work, whether they are in a ballroom or in a boardroom," Zee said. "There is no secret. I feel like it is what every parent does. You just have to organize -- just do your best at whatever you are doing right now."
