“What’s sleep? Do people really sleep?” the Dancing With the Stars pro, 38, joked during a Monday, August 24, Good Morning America appearance. “I really feel bad for Nicole, because he’s a really good eater. So he’s been on it.”

The Burn the Floor alum, who welcomed the little one with the Total Bellas star, 36, on July 31, added, “It has been the most incredible feeling and Nicole and I are just obsessed. I just didn’t know that I could have so much love to give. It’s just incredible. … He literally owns us.”

The former professional wrestler praised Chigvintsev’s fatherhood skills one week after their son’s arrival. “[He’s] the best dad,” she tweeted earlier this month. “Our baby boy is so lucky. I didn’t think I could love him even more, but goodness I fell more in love with him the past few days. I feel so blessed.”

The Broadway star will be returning to Dancing With the Stars next month after being cut from the ABC show last season. “I just can’t wait to get back,” he said on Monday of his season 29 return. “And I want to dedicate this season to my little boy.”

Being left off from the DWTS lineup for season 28 was “a massive shock,” Chigvintsev revealed during an August 2019 “The Bellas Podcast” episode. “It’s not even a job, it’s a lifestyle if you’ve been doing it for a very long time. There was never a thought in my mind that I’m not going to be doing it. … There’s always a chance, as a pro, you might be doing some performances on the show and there’s still an involvement in some sort. But getting this call, [hearing] ‘There’s gonna be no involvement in the show from now on,’ it’s like going through a breakup after 10 years.”
