It’s no secret that Dancing With the Stars pro Val Chmerkovskiy is a sweet guy, and it has never been more apparent than in his recent Instagram photo.

Over the weekend, Val hung out with troupe dancer Nicole Volynets and her three kids, literally balancing one of them on his shoulders as he smiled in ridiculously adorable glasses. Everyone was posing pretty, but we have to admit that Val stole the show (per usual).

“Got kids on kids on kids. #family #time with @nicolevolynets @lawrence_dekhtyar @jonathan_is_the_king and the one on top...” he captioned the photo below. Val is very close with his own family (especially brother Maks), so it’s no surprise that he also likes hanging out with other tight-knit families.

Looking at Nicole’s Instagram account, it seems that these two hang out a lot, snapping photos of everything from weird things they see while shopping to birthday celebrations with other DWTS favs like Mark Ballas and Cheryl Burke! Here’s to hoping more adorable pics are to come — especially with Val in glasses.

What do you think of Val’s glasses and “family” time? Sound off below.
