Awww, I’m so glad this news is finally official. Dancing With The Stars Peta Murgatroyd And Maks Chmerkovskiy are indeed expecting their first baby. Here is more from People…
“I’m looking forward to nurturing something and just having the baby be the center of our world,” says Murgatroyd. “I’m looking forward to putting all our energy into this beautiful soul.”
They still don’t know whether they’re having a boy or girl, but “we’ll be in trouble with a little me running around,” jokes Chmerkovskiy. “So hopefully they’ll be a lot like Peta.”
The happy couple admits they were planning to start a family, but initially didn’t envision having a baby until after their 2017 summer wedding — not that they mind!
“The timing is perfect, actually,” adds Murgatroyd. “I’ll have the baby in January and then I’ll still have about six months to prepare for the wedding.”
“The baby will make a wonderful addition to the wedding party,” adds Chmerkovskiy. “A wonderful, tiny addition.”
Congratulations Maks and Peta!! To read the full article, see People.
ETA: You can watch a video report now at People. People has also posted another part to the story. Note how Nyle DiMarco knew Peta was pregnant before she told him or anyone.
“I was so sick,” Murgatroyd says in the current issue of PEOPLE. “Nyle would see me falling asleep on the couches and on the floor of the rehearsal studio. He’d look at me like, ‘What’s going on?’ And I’d go, ‘Oh, I’m just tired.’ ”
But in reality the pro dancer, 29, was suffering from nausea, a side effect of being pregnant with her first child with fiancé Maksim Chmerkovskiy, 36.
Murgatroyd had planned on keeping her pregnancy a secret until she entered her second trimester. But since she’d become pregnant just a few months into the season, it was impossible to hide by the May 23 finale.
“I had to make sure my costumes were hiding it as much as possible, but a couple of people noticed,” says Murgatroyd, who went on to win the season with DiMarco.
In fact, DiMarco had known for weeks before he mentioned it during semi-finals week in mid-May.
“Nyle actually came up to me and wrote me a text that said, ‘I know,’ ” Murgatroyd, who is now in her second trimester and currently enjoying life on the road with Chmerkovskiy as he and his brother Valentin travel the country in Maks & Val: Live on Tour. “I just lost it laughing because he had known for about two weeks and didn’t say anything to me.”
