Chaz Bono, son of Sonny & Cher, called into “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” on Wednesday to talk about the big reveal of him being a part of the new cast of ABC’sDancing With The Stars.”

Chaz didn’t even tell his mom Cher until right before ABC’s big reveal last Sunday during the Bachelor Pad! Mom definitely approves, saying that she thought it was great and is excited for him.

The 3 time Emmy-nominated transgendered advocate tells us why he wanted to be involved in the dancing show: “It gave me an opportunity to really physically challenge myself. For so many years, I was uncomfortable with my body. And now finally being comfortable in it for the first time, doing something like this was really appealing to me.”
