In a video posted to E! News, Sweetin is shown rehearsing with her pro partner, Keo Motsepe, when her family made a surprise visit to the studio.
“My babies!” Sweetin excitedly exclaimed, as her fiancé, Justin Hodak, and two daughters, Beatrix and Zoie, appeared at the door. Hodak, who proposed to Sweetin in January, clearly thought his bride-to-be could use a little encouragement during her practice session, which he and the girls were happy to supply.
Sweetin invited her adorable family to watch her learn part of a new dance, and at first, they did, sitting on the sidelines and cheering Mom on with applause. But soon, the practice session devolved into a family dance party, with little Zoie improvising some of her own moves: running as fast as she could across the dance floor and then sliding to a stop, as Sweetin joked, “Careful, don’t hurt yourself!”
Sweetin will kick off her run on Dancing with the Stars on Monday next week. She clearly has her family’s support, but she also has the support of her other family: the Tanners from Fuller House. Sweetin opened up to E! News about the advice she received from her on-screen big sis, Candace Cameron Bure, who also competed on Dancing with the Stars.
“She said this will be one of the hardest things I have ever done, that I will absolutely love [it], and it’s a once in a lifetime experience. So I’m really excited to find out myself,” Sweetin said.
