Peta Murgatroyd Wants a Second Child with Husband Maks Chmerkovskiy after Her DWTS Elimination
Pro dancer Peta Murgatroyd was recently eliminated from "Dancing With The Stars." In a candid interview, she said she's ready to have a second baby.
Peta Murgatroyd and her husband Maksim Chmerkovskiy are already doting parents to son Shai Aleksandr, 3. She gave birth to their first child three years ago.
Murgatroyd and her celebrity partner, former American football tight end Vernon Davis, were recently cut from the hit dance competition television series.
THE DANCER IS READY
Following her elimination, Murgatroyd told US Weekly on October 19 that she wants to focus on having another baby with Chmerkovskiy. The star said:
"Yes to baby No. 2. For sure. I'm ready!"
Murgatroyd admitted that she will definitely miss her long days of choreography with Vernon, adding that she is now looking forward to settling down at home for a while.
THEY WANT A BABY NUMBER 2
The plans for another bundle of joy with her husband are not a huge surprise. Back in July, she told US Weekly that she and Chmerkovskiy want a second child.
The renowned dancer also said at the time that their son Shai is getting older and that she wants him to grow up within his childhood with other siblings.
However, it was not love at first sight for the twosome.
IT'S NOT LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT
Previously, the New Zealand-born Australian dancer had teased that she hoped to "schedule in" a baby between "Dancing With The Stars" seasons, as reported by Inquisitr.
"The next season will probably be in fall again so, can I fit a baby in before then?" Murgatroyd explained in an interview. "Probably can, so we'll see if it's doable, yeah."
Murgatroyd and Chmerkovskiy started dating in 2012. Their first child was born in January 2017. Six months later, the couple exchanged their wedding vows in Long Island, New York.
In 2009, Murgatroyd and Chmerkovskiy first met in the Broadway production of "Burn the Floor." However, it was not love at first sight for the twosome.
Murgatroyd told PEOPLE in 2015 that she initially thought Chmerkovskiy was arrogant. But later on, the dancer realized that Chmerkovskiy was not that arrogant, so she learned to like him.
Chmerkovskiy was really generous to the entire cast, Murgatroyd shared, adding that their friendship grew and grew. Soon, they became lovers, and Chmerkovskiy proposed to Murgatroyd in December 2015.
