Peta Murgatroyd is pregnant! A day after the professional ballroom dancer took home the coveted Dancing with the Stars mirrorball trophy with her partner Nyle DiMarco, US Weekly has confirmed that the DWTS star is expecting her first child with fiancé Maksim Chmerkovskiy!

The professional dancers first dated off and on between 2012 and 2013, before reuniting in 2015.  Chmerkovskiy popped the question to the lovely Australian in December following a performance of their show Sway in Miami.

The couple have had babies on their mind for some time. Following their engagement, Murgatroyd told People “I would like to start [having kids] pretty soon. A little boy, and then a little girl.” Her fiancé added, “I can’t wait.”

Jennifer is a graduate of Fresno State University. She spent a number of years working for non-profits before becoming a full-time stay-at-home mother. She currently lives in Central California with her husband, two children, and two codependent cats.
