LOS ANGELES, March 30 (UPI) -- Antonio Brown will incorporate a special guest into his April 4 performance on Dancing with the Stars.

Sharna Burgess, who is partnered with the 27-year-old Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver on the ABC reality competition, revealed she and Brown will dance with his son Antonio Brown, Jr., on the episode.

"I want to tell the story of his most memorable year the right way," she said in an Extra blog post Tuesday. "He is doing the year he became a father for the first time, to his son Antonio Junior."

"I am excited about the concept I have and we will have his son dance in the number with us," she added. "I feel this will be a beautiful moment for the two of them."

Brown is dad to Antonio, Jr., with Shameika Brailsford and is also father to daughter Antanyiah and sons Autonomy and Ali. The NFL star is known for his over-the-top touchdown dance, the Bennie Biggle Wiggle.

"He and I do have a fantastic chemistry, and that will only get better throughout the show," Burgess said. "But what we do have to work on his technique, his finesse, and his flow of movement throughout the dancing."

"I want Antonio and I to continue to focus in on each other and really enjoy every minute of it," she added. "I know he has the talent to go all the way to the end, and I know that he really wants to take that mirror ball back to Pittsburgh after Hines Ward."

Brown and Burgess scored a 21 in Week 1 with their quickstep to "Bad Man" by Pitbull and earned a 19 in Week 2 with their rumba to "Adorn" by Miguel. Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET.
