WATCH: Behind-the-scenes with DWTS' Karina and Jacoby

Julie Sprankles is a freelance writer living in the storied city of Charleston, SC. When she isn't slinging sass for SheKnows, she enjoys watching campy SyFy creature features (Pirahnaconda, anyone?), trolling the internet for dance work...

Could they be any cuter?

Dancing with the Stars’ pro Karina Smirnoff has been filling us in every week about what it’s like working with her Season 16 partner, Baltimore Ravens’ wide receiver Jacoby Jones – and from what we can tell, these two might just burn as many calories laughing as they do dancing. Check out the behind-the-scenes footage we snagged of this adorable duo!

Could they be any cuter?

We can attest to the fact that Karina loves kids — during one interview, the big-hearted dancer genuinely gushed about my 4-month-old son! So it shouldn’t come as any surprise that she loved having Jacoby’s son, Junior, on set. Here, Jacoby and fellow contestant Ingo Rademacher enjoy a rare rehearsal-free moment with their mini-me sons.

Could they be any cuter?

On April 12, Karina tweeted, “I can’t get over the fact that Jacoby can jump over me w/o help at all!” Clearly, these two find down time during their intense rehearsals for some horsing (or leapfrogging?) around. P.S. — It's a good thing gravity didn't kick in mid-jump! And we're with you Karina! How is this even possible? Jacoby may have springs in his legs.

On more than one occasion, Karina has emphasized what a huge goofball Jacoby is — and that he loves making jokes and pulling pranks. As it turns out, Karina isn’t so shabby at pulling pranks either. After Jacoby tricks Karina into coming into a room where he is waiting with an airhorn, Karina decides to make Jacoby pay for his ambush. See for yourself... she exacts her revenge with swift precision!
