After sustaining a calf injury that has put him out of “Dancing with the Stars” indefinitely, Maksim Chmerkovskiy probably needed to hear some words of encouragement. Luckily, his newborn son Shai is rooting him on!

Chmerkovskiy’s fiancee and Shai’s mother, Peta Murgatroyd, took to Instagram to post an adorable photo of their little boy, along with a “get well soon” message.

“Wishing Daddy a speedy recovery from La La Land We love you and can’t wait to get you back Kisses from Shai,” she wrote for Shai.

Chmerkovskiy will be missing next week’s show and is unsure when he will be able to return to the competition if at all. On Tuesday, he shared an update on his recovery, saying, “Please rest assured that I’m taking this thing very seriously and, although I don’t have a concrete return date, I’ll give it my all!”
