Xochitl Gomez and Val Chmerkovskiy’s time on the “Dancing with the Stars Live” tour was equal parts work and play. When the season 32 DWTS winners weren’t performing their trophy-winning moves, they were bantering backstage like good pals do.

“Just because someone’s a little older (sorry Val) doesn’t mean that they don’t know how to crack jokes,” the Marvel actress tells PEOPLE exclusively of the pro dancer.

By that, Gomez is referencing Chmerkovskiy’s “insane” amount of dad jokes, which came along when he welcomed son Rome, 1, with wife Jenna Johnson in January 2023.

Naturally, the question of which one of Chmerkovskiy’s quips was most memorable arose. Turns out, Gomez’s favorite one is inspired by Taylor Swift.

“I asked him, ‘What era are you in?’ and he so quickly, while unbuttoning his shirt, [said] ‘I’m currently in my Sexy Dad era,'” Gomez says while impersonating Chmerkovskiy with a cool smirk.

Gomez waits for a beat, letting the line sink in, before slapping her forehead with her hand and smiling in response to the corniness of it all. “It was basically like a Val comedy show,” she says.
