Though the celebrity/pro dancer pairings for the upcoming ninth season of Dancing With the Stars aren’t going to be officially announced until Monday, Melissa Joan Hart has exclusively confirmed to OK! that she will be partnering with two-time DWTS winner, Mark Ballas!

“I was so nervous to meet my partner and with tons of speculation I did a little snooping at past shows,” the 33-year-old mother of two reveals to OK!. “I am so excited to be paired with the reigning champ Mark Ballas. We are ready to tear up the dance floor.”

Mark’s two previous wins on Dancing with the Stars were also Olympic gold medalists. In Season 6, he and Kristi Yamaguchi skated away with the title, and then last season he and pint-sized gymnast Shawn Johnson were good as gold.
