Sleep Chmerkovskiy Basks in His Newfound DWTS Fame

Dancing With the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy is a total stage father for Sir Sleep-A-Lot, the adorable English bulldog he co-parents with his brother Val.

Sleep — who has more than 2,200 followers on Twitter (@SirSleep) — recently moved from the East Coast to L.A. to be with his two daddies. Viewers caught a glimpse of Sleep on Season 13, Week 8 when Hope Solo visited with Maks’ family.

As Maks wrote today in his TV Guide blog:

“I hope everyone saw Sleep's cameo on Monday's show! Sleep is the man. He's a TV star now! He's having a blast here in L.A. I've been bringing him to my friend's dog place, so he's got celebrity dog friends he's chilling with. He's kind of in his own spotlight. I can picture the other dogs saying, ‘You're that guy from...’ If he could talk, he'd definitely have something to say! He's having a lot of fun and I love having him out here. Coming home and seeing his face — there's nothing like it.”

Yes, and when that petition came around asking fans to vote for Maks and Val to have their own TV show, we noted that Sleep would be the actual star, with the bros as his sidekicks.
