Nick Viall did not make the best first impression with new fiancee Vanessa Grimaldi during the After the Final Rose special that ended The Bachelor season 21. For now, though, the two are going strong. E! News reports that Vanessa finally got to visit Nick at his Dancing with the Stars practice for the upcoming season and hang out with the cutest new baby in the DWTS family, Peta's son Shai.


Bachelor Stars Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi Respond to Backlash From After the Final Rose>>>

It was Peta who broke the news, posting a picture of Nick, Vanessa, baby Shai and herself on her Twitter account. Peta wrote, "FINALLY we can all be together. #TeamBabyGotBach is here & we CANT WAIT to perform for you on Monday." 


Nick reposted Peta's picture on his own Twitter account writing, "TEAM BABY GOT BACH is ready for Monday night!!" 

In addition Peta, Nick and Vanessa sat down and answered questions from fans on Dancing with the Stars' official Facebook page. While the casual Q&A wasn't a complete 180 from Nick and Vanessa's awkward After the Final Rose interview, the two do seem much more comfortable with each other not under Chris Harrison's plastic gaze. 

At one point Peta (who is engaged to fellow Dancing with the Stars dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy) was asked to give Nick and Vanessa advice on engaged life. The dancer tells them, "Just keep it amazing. Keep loving each other through thick and thin and bad times [and] good times. You know what? Everyone has good times [and] bad times. Keep it amazing." 


"It's the worst advice ever," she goes on to joke after being teased by Nick. "But keep loving each other. I feel like you have amazing chemistry anyway. Like as soon as I saw you guys together, I think it's perfect."  

So while most of Bachelor Nation might not believe in Nick and Vanessa making it, Peta is at least in their corner. 


But what do you think? Do Nick and Vanessa seem more natural than they did on After the Final Rose? Did Nick make the right choice picking Vanessa over runner-up Raven? 

Dancing with the Stars season 24 begins Monday, March 20 at 8/7c on ABC. Want more news? Like our DWTS Facebook page!
