Dancing with the Stars couple Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy have revealed they want to have a baby girl more than anything.
Peta and Maksim welcomed a son Shai in January 2017, and they’re definitely ready for Baby No. 2, Us Weekly reported.
“I want to experience that relationship,” Maksim, 40, told Us on Monday of having a daughter.
“When Peta said [her last pregnancy] was a boy, I had this elated reaction like, ‘Thank God.’ But immediately after that, I was like, ‘Okay, now I’m ready for a girl.’ I just think it’s a special thing.”
Maksim also admitted his mother is “looking forward” to having another grandchild.
“She’s dying [for a girl], but I am too,” Maksim shared.
Peta, 33, is apparently hoping to get pregnant as soon as possible. She revealed in October 2019 she and Maksim hoped to conceive a second baby before the next season of Dancing with the Stars commences.
“I would love to have more kids,” Peta told the magazine at the time.
“We’re talking about it now and trying to — it sounds crazy — schedule it in. The next season will probably be in fall again so, can I fit a baby in before then? Probably can, so we’ll see if it’s doable, yeah.”
The former Dancing with the Stars pros got married in July 2017 with a fairy-tale wedding in New York just about six months after Shai — which means “gift” in Hebrew — was born.
Peta told Us on Monday she anticipates Shai will be “a great” big brother.
“I think he’ll be able to help a lot and it will not be as stressful as having two kids under 3,” Peta revealed. “We’ve already spoken to him about it a little bit, and he goes between wanting a sister and a brother.”
Peta and Maksim began dating in 2012 and got engaged in December 2015 after the “bad boy of the [Dancing with the Stars] ballroom” proposed during a performance of Sway at the Olympia Theater in Miami, FL.
Maksim and Peta will be joining Val Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson on tour this summer for Maks & Val Live 2020: Motion Pictures Tour.
The two pairs of married dancers will be performing in a 57-show tour that kicks off on Thursday, June 11, in North Carolina and ends on August 16 in Pennsylvania.
Maksim, Val and their wives will reportedly recreate iconic scenes from the movies on the tour.
