Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy of “Dancing with the Stars” fame announced today that they have welcomed a new addition to their family. Peta gave birth to the couple’s first child Shai Aleksander Chmerkovskiy.
Shai means “gift” in Hebrew and the babies middle name is a tribute to Maks’ father, Aleksandr.
Earlier today both professional dancers tweeted that his time of birth was at 5:34 a.m January 4, 2017. In a statement, the couple says, “This is, without a doubt, the best thing that has ever happened to us!”
Shai’s worth comes a little more than a year after the “Dancing with the Stars” pros got engaged on stage in Miami.
Congratulations and best of luck to the couple!
