Dancing with the Stars pro dancer Tony Dovolani and his wife Lina are expecting twins, Dovolani confirms exclusively to PEOPLE. The couple already have a two-year-old daughter, Luana.

Dovolani, who’s paired with Broadway star Marissa Jaret Winokur this season, tells PEOPLE, “everything is great” with his wife’s pregnancy, which is four months along. Lina is 26.

“Kids are a blessing and give your life purpose and meaning,” he says.

Perhaps this explains why Dovolani, 34, known for his intensity on the ballroom floor, has been smiling so much on the show this season. Reharsals with Winokur, who’s expecting a son via a surrogate, have been a blast, he says.

“I cannot stop smiling this year and part of the reason is Marissa is a sweetheart,” Dovolani says, acknowledging that ballroom dancing is not all they have in common these days. “I’m thinking about my babies and she’s thinking about her baby. Now if somebody doesn’t point their toe it’s no longer as important as it used to be.” –Monica RizzoJohn Sciulli/WireImage
