Looks like the "Dancing With The Stars" star Peta Murgatroyd and her family had a fun vacation at the Bahamas! The beautiful family looks amazing in the new pictures shares by Peta on her Instagram.
Peta Murgatroyd and her husband, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, took some time off their busy schedule to go on a family vacation to the Bahamas. They traveled to the beautiful holiday destination with their adorable son, Shai.
Peta gave her fans a glimpse into her family time in a series of snapshots on Instagram. The family of three looked radiant as they posed for the cameras. Maksim held little Shai on his arms as Peta huddled close to her boys in the snapshots.
SHAI'S THIRD BIRTHDAY BASH
A video of Shai baking cupcakes with his loved ones followed right after the family pictures. Shai was the center of attention because it was his third birthday and, according to Peta, it was everything that they wanted to be.
In the caption, Peta mentioned that they had a beautiful day that was complete with Shai's favorite movie "Trolls," bagels with cream cheese, and some friends and family time at the beach. Also, the little one's day was all the more special because it was the first time that Peta's parents were with him on his birthday.

My baby had his 3rd Birthday (1/4/2020) in the Bahamas and it was everything we wanted it to be. We woke up to Trolls (his new favorite movie that we had to buy 10x 😫), ate bagels with cream cheese and had a beautiful day on the beach with family and friends. It was the first time my parents were able to be with him on his birthday so it was pretty special for me. In the afternoon I set up a family cooking session at the Baha Mar kids club with Chef Michael. The kids baked their own cupcakes and played in the awesome kids space while the adults were in their element cooking fillet and snapper 🍽 ...It was truly the best birthday as the kids LOVED being so involved and learning how to cook (let’s pray this continues🙏🏻) We finished the evening feasting on our own cooked meals outside with wine and cake! What a special day for my big boy! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s true that when you look back, time goes so quickly, but while it’s ticking over it feels so long. I have always made a conscious decision to be present with my son, to always be there no matter what, to prioritize him over phone calls and emails....and from that he reciprocates with his unwavering affection, love and joy! I have cherished every single moment of these 3 years with you my baby boy. You’re growing up to be as genius, quick-witted and agile as your Papa and hopefully you get some of my cancerian emotional traits too lol... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you @bahamarresorts explorer club for hosting us and making this day so memorable! #tears #thebigthree
A FUN CELEBRATION
Peta also shared that the kids got to bake their own cupcakes. Meanwhile, the adults were busy cooking fillet and snapper. "It was truly the best birthday as the kids LOVED being so involved and learning how to cook," the happy mother wrote.
The "DWTS" star and her husband have kept their fans up-to-date on their son's shenanigans as they document his growth on social media.
HOW PETA AND MAKSIM HIT IT OFF
Peta and Maksim welcomed their bundle of joy on January 4, 2017. The proud parents have been together for a long time now. In an interview with "Today," Peta shared the story of how her future husband approached her for a date when they first started out.
"I feel like we didn’t actually have an official first date, because ... it was funny, I was just a bit worried about a situation on the second season of 'Dancing with the Stars' and he said, 'Do you want to talk about it over dinner?'"
A HEALTHY MARRIAGE
Their chemistry was evident right from the start. According to Peta, Maksim was a gentleman on their first date and that still holds true to this day.
Although the "DWTS" star claims that she and her husband are completely opposite when it comes to their personalities, they have been able to make their relationship work.
Before the pro dancers became a couple, Maksim was engaged to his fellow "DWTS" star, Karina Smirnoff. Meanwhile, Peta was in a relationship with Damian Whitewood who would ultimately become her "DWTS" co-star.
Their romance is undeniably epic, but none of it would have been possible if they hadn't gotten back together after breaking up once. It was Maksim who ended things but it didn't take him a long time to realize that he had made a mistake. So they got back together and the rest is history.
