Peta Murgatroyd and Maks Chmerkovksiy were on Good Morning America today. They had a special announcement for Dancing With The Stars Season 24. Guess what? They are both coming back as Pros. Let us know what you think in comments. So exciting. Thanks to @Idolxfactor for the heads up and help today. Video coming up.

ETA: Be sure to see US Magazine. Peta talks of returning to Dancing With The Stars. You can also see her and Maks on the cover.
Murgatroyd’s motivation is two-fold. “I want to get my body back,” admits the 5-foot-7 pro. “And I want to defend my title. I won two seasons ago and never got to come back.” (Chmerkovskiy welcomes the challenge, telling Us, “I just want to support her and at the same time, maybe have some healthy competition in the family.”)
And though dancing, running and weight training have helped Murgatroyd shed most of her baby weight (“I think I’m kind of halfway there,” she says), one thing does make her nervous about slipping back into her old skimpy costumes. “I’m not looking forward to having huge boobs on the show,” admits the breastfeeding star. “I’ve never had massive knockers before and I don’t really know how we’ll tie them down! I actually contacted the costume designer and said, ‘We need to have a meeting about this!’”
