Today, Good Morning America announced the news of Peta Murgatroyd And Maks Chmerkovskiy expecting a baby in January. They give them a “10”. So do I. Thanks to @Idolxfactor1 for recording. For lots more coverage and updates, see this previous post.
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.
“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.”

Carrie Ann Inaba has written her last blog of the season at Access Hollywood. She talks of why Dancing With The Stars Season 22 was her favorite and how touched she was by the contestants this season. So much so, she was moved to learn sign language. You can read the full blog at Access Hollywood. Below is her open letter “to anyone who wants to try something new but is afraid”….
To Anyone Who Wants to Try something New but is Afraid;
To all of you who have a desire, a dream, or a daring thought of doing something you have never done before, of trying something you wish you had done many years ago and may be afraid you are too old to do now.
To those of you who feel a tug in your heart when you watch someone dancing, singing, painting, volunteering, or reaching out to help when no one else will, because deep in your heart, you want to be that person…
To the shy souls that want to say hello to a neighbor they always see but have never learned his/her name, or to the successful business people who really just want to start their own small business and simplify their lives,
I offer you this: Life is a journey, your personal journey.
It is yours to explore your heart’s desires and your most secret dreams.
If you listen to the whispers of your heart, even if you think people may laugh or judge you, you will find yourself satisfied and you will give yourself joy.
For life is about growth and expanding, exploring the unknown, and pursuing your own bliss.
Start small, or go for it all.
But I urge you all to dare to live the life you want to live.
And maybe even one day, we will see you on Dancing with the Stars.
Have a beautiful summer and I hope to see you soon.
To all the Season 22 contestants, thank you for daring to dance with us. Your courage has inspired us all. I hope you have enjoyed and have been enriched by the journey. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to work with you all, and to do something I love. Spread love wherever you can and I’ll see you next season! xoxo
