Heather Morris And Maks Chmerkovskiy DWTS Season 24 Rehearsal Photos, Comments On The Competition

If you go to E Online, you can see some beautiful shots of Heather Morris and Maks Chmerkovskiy rehearsing for their debut on Dancing With the Stars. Below is some comments from them too.

But even with her impressive dance experience, Heather admitted to E! News, “I’m nervous about the live audience…I’m just not totally used to it.”

As for Maks, he was quick to sound off on the couple possible having an advantage in the competition, with the new dad saying, “To say that we just have this massive advantage, I think so, but I don’t think we’re the only ones that could pull off beautiful, beautiful numbers. I’m ready for us to be scrutinized a little different and judged a little different and rightfully so, we’ll do our best.”

ETA: Maks also talked with Entertainment Tonight about Peta. More at the link and on ET on TV Wednesday!

As fans of the couple know, the two welcomed their first child, son Shai, in January. Since then, Murgatroyd hasn’t been shy about documenting her journey to shedding the baby weight via social media, and will be taking the stage with Bachelor star Nick Viall when the new season premieres on ABC on Monday, March 20. Yes, just two months after giving birth, the blond beauty is back to work!

“It’s insane, it’s insane,” Chmerkovskiy told ET’s Cameron Mathison. “I’m not a good enough spokesperson to explain this, this process, but it’s — my hats off [to her] is an understatement.”

“It’s fun! We get to dance for a living, it’s amazing,” he continued. “But Peta has a much harder job than I do. Because she’s a mom. What women go through with pregnancy — [is crazy].”

Luckily, they have a wonderful nanny who takes care of Shai while the two are busy performing and in rehearsals.

“She knows what she’s doing, and yeah, no, we trust her,” the father of one joked. “But it’s amazing. I met her kids. It’s just something that I can’t wait for ours to be [13 months, like Heather’s] youngest age. He just walks around doing his things, pulling on some plants, keeps hitting his head everywhere, just smiles through it.”
