All together now: "Awwwww!"

Celebrating his 27th birthday Thursday, Dancing With the Stars pro Derek Hough was feeling nostalgic for his younger years.

Sharing two adorable pictures of himself as a chubby little boy, Maria Menounos' former DWTS partner included the tagline "Where I was 27 years ago."

Growing up in Salt Lake City, Utah, Hough -- the brother of Rock of Ages' Julianne Hough -- is the only boy in a family of five siblings.

Eliminated from DWTS Wednesday with celeb partner Menounos, 33, Hough enjoyed a birthday party on the set of LIVE! With Kelly the next morning. In attendance for the on-air soiree: host Kelly Ripa, Menounos and The Bachelor's Chris Harrison, who donned a party hat and drank champagne with the trio during the party.

Now that his stint on this season of DWTS is complete, pro dancer Hough knows just how he'll unwind after a few months of hard work. "We already have things in the works [to pamper ourselves]," Hough told Us Weekly after his exit Wednesday. "We are going to just mend our bodies: some facials, massages, oxygen baths. You name it."
