Maksim Chmerkovskiy Praises Fiancée Peta Murgatroyd’s ‘DWTS’ Season 24 Return


Maksim Chmerkovskiy is one proud fiancé!

The Dancing With the Stars pro, who is partnered with Glee star Heather Morris for Season 24, gushed about his soon-to-be wife, Peta Murgatroyd.

The blonde beauty stepped away from the dance floor following her win on Season 22 to give birth to their first child, Shai, in January.

Since his birth, the Australian native has been working hard to get her body ready for the upcoming season and her new partner, Bachelor star Nick Viall.

Let’s just say her man is very proud.

"It's insane, it's insane. I'm not a good enough spokesperson to explain this, this process, but it's — my hats off [to her] is an understatement,” he said to Entertainment Tonight.

"It's fun! We get to dance for a living, it's amazing. But Peta has a much harder job than I do. Because she's a mom. What women go through with pregnancy — [is crazy]."

Though it’s tough to be away from Shai during rehearsals, their little guy has a great nanny.

"She knows what she's doing, and yeah, no, we trust her. But it's amazing,” he continued.

And of course he’s already met his partner’s two boys, who will surely be BFFS with little Shai in no time!  

“I met her [Heather’s] kids. It's just something that I can't wait for ours to be [13 months, like Heather's] youngest age,” he shared.  

“He just walks around doing his things, pulling on some plants, keeps hitting his head everywhere, just smiles through it.”

Maks and his brother, Val Chmerkovskiy, are both dancers, but will his son follow in their dancing footsteps?

"Hopefully not. What if he's like 10 and he's like, "I want to be a doctor and not on the cover of a magazine,’” he joked.

We can’t wait to see Maks and Peta — and the rest of the DWTS cast — hit the ballroom in less than a week!
