Congrats to Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd as they have officially welcomed their baby! Murgatroyd gave birth to a boy named Shai Aleksander Chmerkovskiy.
“This is, without a doubt, the best thing that has ever happened to us!” the couple said in a statement.
The couple shared a video of them on the way to the hospital in the dark early a.m. hours mentioning “Hoping for a very smooth delivery for Peta and hope Maks doesn’t pass out! Best of luck to a very healthy little guy and God Bless you all”—followed by a pic of Peta in her hospital bed touching up her mascara.
“We deliberately have it in July so it doesn’t conflict with any of the seasons, so we can bring our past partners and our troupe of dancers and stuff like that,” Peta told E! News.
Peta actually thinks its just the right amount of prep time. “The timing is perfect, actually,” she told People. “I’ll have the baby in January and then I’ll still have about six months to prepare for the wedding.”
Congratulations to the new parents!
