Val Chmerkovskiy Plays Hero, Carries Stranded Elderly Couple Upstairs After Apartment Fire

Someone needs to work faster on cloning these Chmerkovskiy boys.

Dancing With the Stars pro Val Chmerkovskiy may be a sexy dancer and a badass rapper, but deep down he’s a total marshmallow. Last week he was talking about his great love for babies, and he recently shared a sweet letter of appreciation from a couple living in his apartment complex.

As you may remember, part of Val's building burned down on October 6. Thankfully no one was hurt, but it rendered Val homeless for a while, and apparently things aren't completely fixed.

As Val explained when sharing an Instagram photo of his thank you note, "After the fire my buildings elevator doesn't work... This elderly couple was stranded in the lobby after a doctors appointment, waiting for the fire dept. to help carry them up the stairs to their apt.. for over an hour!!"

That had to be so frustrating for them. Val to the rescue! As you can probably read below, the card says:

"Val & Lady Friend

Words cannot express our appreciation for your help getting us upstairs on Tues. We thank you very, very much -

It means so much to us."

Aww! And isn’t this so much nicer than an email? Nothing beats the charm of an old-school thank you card. Don’t let them fade from tradition! Props to Val for saving the day, and thanks also go to his "lady friend" for her efforts. We promise we won’t obsess too much over who she might be…

Catch Val tonight, Monday, October 23, on DWTS Season 17 as he and Elizabeth Berkley have the Cha-Cha and this new Switch-Up Challenge the show is trying out.
