Peta Murgatroyd And Maksim Chmerkovskiy Are Counting Down The Days Until Son Arrives, Starting With A Fun Baby Shower
The countdown begins for Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy as they await the arrival of their little bundle of joy. The mom-to-be is in her final two weeks of her pregnancy and is looking quite healthy and as gorgeous as ever. The Dancing with the Stars couple are both looking forward to this new stage in their lives and just recently celebrated it with an amazing baby shower with their family and close friends. They are expecting a little boy and are anxious to finally see his newborn face.
People had some of the details and both parents-to-be had also posted some photos of their fun celebration. Peta looked exquisite in a full-length white dress that accentuated her baby belly. Her blond hair was swept up in an elegant style to match her outfit. Being pregnant has certainly agreed with her.
The party seemed to be all about balloons with a little elephant, rocking horse, and boy toys mixed in. They went with the colors of blue and yellow to go along with the boy theme. They also had a photo booth where the expectant couple and their guests could pose for some snapshots for fun memories of this special occasion.
Of course, a baby shower just wouldn’t be complete without some sweets for the guests. They had a balloon-themed three tier chocolate-on-chocolate cake that had written on it, “The adventure begins.” In addition, there were plenty of cupcakes and other treats that were all made by GoodieBox Bakeshop. Peta Murgatroyd especially loved the pretty flowers that were provided by Starbright Floral Shop to help decorate the McCarren Hotel & Pool in Brooklyn, New York where this event was being held.
The guest list most likely included many from their Dancing with the Stars family. Tony Dovolani was seen in attendance, as well as Val Chmerkovskiy’s rumored gal, Amber Rose. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like brother Val could make it to the shower as he is on a DWTS tour right now. However, there were some babies in attendance that made it even more special. Maks said that he had enjoyed the practice it gave him and Peta before their own little one comes into the world.
“The love in the room was apparent and all the babies made us feel at ease about bringing a kid into this crazy world.”
Peta’s first pregnancy has gone well, despite the morning sickness that she had in her first trimester. She and Maks are thrilled that they are starting a family together. They have both been keeping everyone updated throughout these past nine months with photos of her growing baby bump and of the two lovebirds having their special moments together. Since announcing that they were expecting their first child together last summer, they have been pretty much inseparable, except when he was dancing with Amber Rose this fall on DWTS until they were booted off. Maksim has a lot to look forward to, so he wasn’t too broken up about it.
The 36-year-old Ukrainian is quite content to be a stay-at-home dad and let his woman go do her thing if she chooses to. She may end up back on Dancing with the Stars next season because Maks has already said he is not going to be back. However, they may both sit out in the spring and decide to stay home with their new son.
Murgatroyd has been into what may be considered her nesting mode. In a cute video that Maksim posted on Instagram just a few days ago, he showed everyone the aftermath of Peta’s cooking adventure. Their kitchen was a little messy with some food remnants on the floor and lots of stuff on the counter and he was joking that she may have been a little traumatized by her dinner making. It sounds like she has not cooked much at all, but he said that her first attempt turned out great.
It should be loads of fun when baby Chmerkovskiy gets here. You know that Maksim will be keeping everyone informed of his new daddy adventures, including diaper duty. But for now, Peta Murgatroyd and her guy will be on baby alert for the next couple of weeks. Will they be snapping photos at the hospital as well? Stay tuned!
