Nick and Vanessa Lachey joining 'Dancing With the Stars' season 25 cast, source says


Nick and Vanessa Lachey will be competing for the mirror ball trophy!

A source confirms to ET that the couple is joining the season 25 cast of Dancing With the Stars.

"The show isn't holding back this year, they really want this to be a big season and one of the ways they'll do this is with mini rivalries!" the source says. "There will be the twin rivalry with Drew [Scott] and Nikki Bella and now there are also two couples competing: Nick vs. Vanessa and Maks [Chmerkovskiy] vs. Peta [Murgatroyd]."

With two couples competing this season on DWTS, could Nick and Vanessa be paired up with newlyweds Maks and Peta?

ABC, when reached for comment, told ET, "We have no comment but appreciate you checking in."
