Dancing with the Stars pro Peta Murgatroyd shares a 3-year-old son with fellow DWTS veteran husband Maksim Chmerkovskiy and lately, fans have wondered when the couple might decide to expand their family. From the sound of things, Peta and Maks could be ready to make their son, Shai, a big brother relatively soon.
Maks and Peta recently chatted about their baby plans with Hollywood Life, a topic the couple clearly have discussed with one another. The Dancing with the Stars veterans were not ready to share any big news yet, but they did seem to be on the same page regarding their feelings about adding another child to their family.
While Maks left the television cast of Dancing with the Stars behind, seemingly for good, Peta hit the dance floor last fall with partner Lamar Odom after taking several seasons off. However, she is apparently open to the idea of leaving DWTS once again if doing so means focusing on her expanding family.
“Yeah, definitely more kids coming up. I don’t know [when]. I don’t know, honestly. In this year sometime. Yeah, for sure,” Peta shared.
Apparently, both Maks and Peta will be performing in a summer dancing tour, and that gig will probably impact their timing for a second pregnancy. However, they both seem content to say they are looking toward putting a family expansion in progress at some point in 2020.
Maks will turn 40-years-old soon, and he seems ready for the next chapter of his life. Ultimately, however, he aims to enjoy more of the same in terms of what has become most important to him.
“Just enjoying the family love that we have going on, and what we continue to build together,” Maks noted.
Peta and Maksim tied the knot in July 2017, with baby Shai as ring bearer. Peta performed on Dancing with the Stars with partner Nyle DiMarco during her first pregnancy while Shai was only about 6-months-old when she started gushing about motherhood and wanting more kids.
Could Peta end up pregnant at the same time as her sister-in-law and fellow Dancing with the Stars pro Jenna Johnson? It seems that she has joked about wanting to orchestrate such a thing, but Jenna and her husband Val Chmerkovskiy may not follow quite the same plan in terms of timing.
Fans seem to love all of the updates that Maks and Peta share about Shai and they will no doubt be anxiously waiting to spot a baby bump as the DWTS pair pursue adding another baby to their growing family.
