Peta Murgatroyd was terrified when she found out she was pregnant
Dancing With the Stars pro dancer Peta Murgatroyd was terrified when she first learned that she and husband Maks Chmerkovskiy were expecting their second child.
“I held back for three days before I told Maks,” she said Us weekly. “Because I wanted to see what would happen. It was a scary journey because, honestly, I would panic every time I went to the bathroom.”
She added: “Some kind of panic would set in like this might be the last time you feel good either way, you know? It was different until I hit maybe the 14, 15 week mark where I was like, ‘Oh, ok.’ Everyone told me to f*ck relax.”
Murgatroyd and Chmerkovskiy announced they are expecting their second child in early 2023. Murgatroyd is expected in June. They share one child, Shai, who was born in 2017.

Peta Murgatroyd has been open about her infertility journey and her IVF hopes throughout the process, although she shared that she had given up hope of going on her second round of IVF.
“I literally prayed to the gods about it, but it’s so funny because I was at a point where I allowed it [the idea of pregnancy] go,” she said people in January 2023. “I was just about to call. I had called the IVF doctor to start my second round again and I had let it go. As in I thought, ‘If I’m a one-time mom, if I have a child for the rest of my life, I have to be happy with that.’ ”
She added that she was “skeptical” about her pregnancy and would share it with others.
In an Instagram post When Murgatroyd announced her pregnancy, she shared that she and her husband went through “two years of constant struggle and heartache” as well as “three miscarriages and one failed embryo transfer.”
