"Honestly, it's been a relief in a lot of ways because I was able to finally tell the world what I'd been feeling and holding inside," Nick explained.

As for the news that they were having a boy, Lauren revealed that they were very excited.

"We obviously wanted a healthy baby but we were hoping for a boy," Lauren, who is 16 weeks into her pregnancy, shared.

Lauren added that they the thing they are most looking forward to with having a son is "teaching him to golf!"

Nick couldn't help but gush about his wife, telling ET, "I knew she'd be the best mother, and that's why I felt comfortable going to that next step is because of her and I know she'll help me raise a good boy."

The news of Lauren's pregnancy was revealed during a pre-taped segment, played before Nick and Sharna took the stage. In the short recorded package, Nick and Lauren also detailed some of the hardships they've face, including a miscarriage the couple suffered a year ago.

The couple also welcomed cameras in to their doctor's office for a look at the ultrasound image of their little bundle of joy.

According to Nick, he wasn't even able to watch the segment as it played in the DWTS stage because he knew it would overwhelm him.

"I didn't want to get emotional. I didn't want to cry," said Nick, who teared up after finishing the dance, which earned him the night's only perfect score. "I held it in all the way to the end and I was like, 'Oh God!' and it just kind of all came out. All these different emotions -- from the preparation of the dance to how much work we've had up until this point, to the story itself meaning so much to me. All those things combined made it really emotional for me."
