Former professional Dancing With the Stars dancer Peta Murgatroyd has hinted that she and husband Maks Chmerkovskiy are trying to have their second child. The couple welcomed their first child, Shai, in 2017.
In an Instagram Q&A with her followers, Murgatroyd shared that she and her husband are ready to expand their family.
When a fan asked, “More babies?!” Murgatroyd replied, “We’re working on it 🙂 In fact, we were just working on it lol… No seriously, you’ll all be getting info on our family soon.”
One fan asked if Murgatroyd was “dying” for “Dancing With the Stars” pro dancers Val Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson to have a baby.
“Yessssss OMG they would make beautiful babies @jennajohnson @valentin….. and Shai needs a cousin,” she wrote in response to the question.
Johnson and Val have been married since April 2019.
Murgatroyd also took the time to clarify that she doesn’t mind if fans ask for photos with her, although there is a caveat.
“I’m super chilled about stuff like this…but I’m not cool when it comes to my son,” she wrote. “He doesn’t take pictures, like in … we don’t want him in photos, so please don’t ask.”
During the Q&A, Murgatroyd also offered some parenting advice to her followers.
“How do I deal with parenting differences (what do you do?)” she asked one person.
She added: “You have to go into the bedroom, close the door behind you and NOT work it out in front of the kids. They should just see that their parents are united.”
Murgatroyd recently celebrated pro dancer Sharna Burgess’ baby shower on Dancing With the Stars.
“This day could not have been more beautiful!” Murgatroyd wrote on Instagram on June 8, 2022. “@Sharnaburgess was showered in the most perfect way. The morning was really magical with a ladies lunch and then we ended the chaos with all the families and kids that came to participate.”
She added: “I couldn’t be happier for you my love, you and @brianaustingreen are soul mates and this little boy is destined for greatness with you both as his parents. I felt so honored to be a part of your special day. We have waited so long for this day.”
In a group of Instagram Stories, Murgatroyd shared photos of her son having his hair cut and styled into a shorter style. She said she and her son were both “over” the long hair after working on it for 20 minutes a night.
She added that she had to defend her son from people telling her not to have long hair because he’s a boy. She wanted her followers to know that those people had nothing to do with his hair being cut.
“Please note that this decision was not made to please the long hair/girl hair haters here. He made the decision himself when he was ready,” she said.
Dancing With the Stars returns to a new home in Fall 2022. The show will now air live exclusively on Disney+ instead of ABC.
