How exciting! Hours after Peta Murgatroyd’s triumphant win on the season 22 finale of ‘Dancing With The Stars,’ the dancer announced she’s expecting a baby with her fiancé, and fellow ‘DWTS’ pro, Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Talk about winning BIG!
Looks like Peta Murgatroyd, 29, and her fiancé Maksim Chmerkovskiy, 36, have MORE to celebrate than just Peta’s epic Dancing With The Stars win! After all, Peta is pregnant and expecting her and Maksim’s first baby! We could NOT be happier for the adorable couple — and there’s no question the two must be on cloud nine right now.
The Dancing with the Stars celebs are expecting, according to US Weekly! And what a happy time to announce — after all, Peta did just win season 22 of DWTS on May 24 along with her partner, Nyle DiMarco, 27! This will be both Peta and Maksim’s first child, but the pregnancy news does not come as a surprise at all. In fact, the dancing duo are completely head-over-heels for each other and have talked about having kids for quite some time now.
“I would like to start [having kids] pretty soon,” Peta revealed to People shortly following the couple’s December engagement. “A little boy, and then a little girl.” Aw! And while Maksim would rather have the reverse, because he believes “an older girl would be more responsible,” he also can’t wait to experience parenthood. Seriously, these two are going to make incredible parents!
The two got engaged back in December in a super romantic way that, of course, took place on a dance floor. Maksim proposed on stage during a performance in Miami and pretty much left the audience in tears because of how sweet it all was! “I’m not a man of words. But I’ll take this moment to be speechless, and I’ll just say that I’m in love with you,” Maks said to Peta in front of the roaring crowd.
“And I want to be in love with you for the rest of my life. And if you’ll have me, then I want you to be apart of mine.” Obvi Peta accepted the ring — and now it looks like they’re taking their relationship even further by becoming parents! “I’m not just looking forward to the next 20 years. I’m looking forward to the 20 years after that, when the kids are out of the house and it’s just the two of us again,” dished Maks. “I can’t wait.”
And as for the couple’s plans to walk down the aisle, the newly crowned season 22 mirrorball champion was tight-lipped when asked by reporters after the DWTS finale on May 24, but she did reveal that they have “chosen some dates.” Congrats you two!
