Jenna Johnson wants to set up a Dancing with the Stars double date with Jason and Kylie Kelce!

While speaking to PEOPLE about her partnership with Exuviance, Johnson, 30, opens up about her marriage to fellow DWTS pro Val Chmerkovskiy and their time on the dance competition show.

Ahead of her potential eighth season as a pro, Johnson shares that she “would love to” be paired with a football player because “they are not afraid to work hard.”

“A lot of the times with our male celebs, this little girl yelling at them all day to do the cha-cha-cha on time, is probably not the most fun thing always. So, I think that they can handle that,” she explains.

The dancer adds that a bonus of having an athletic partner is she can be “chucked in the air, thrown around” and “do psychotic lifts that no one’s expecting.” Her ideal partner-in-crime on the ballroom floor? None other than the Philadelphia Eagles star.

“He just retired. I think it's the perfect thing. If his wife wants to do it with Val, we could definitely do that,” Johnson says, putting out an “open casting call” for the former football center and his wife. “I know that he has some kids, so we could bond over parenting and stuff.”

Johnson and Chmerkovskiy, 38 — who tied the knot in 2019 — share a 16-month-old son, Rome Valentin. Observing her husband as a father, Johnson notes that “he is the biggest teddy bear” when it comes to their son.

“It's made me fall in love with him even more,” she says. “Watching him be so tender with our sweet baby boy, taking him swimming, taking him to the park, going on walks with him. I knew that I loved him and I knew that he would be a great dad, but to see him in action and to exceed all of my expectations, has just been a dream come true.”

In January, Johnson celebrated Rome’s first birthday with a carousel of adorable photos on Instagram. Under snaps of Rome wearing a birthday crown, she penned a sweet tribute to “the sweetest soul.”

"Time is truly the greatest gift and I’ll cherish every minute I get with you my sweet love. Thank you for making me a mother. It’s been a dream come true to watch you grow into the most observant and joyful boy. I love you with every fiber of my being!" she wrote in the caption.
