Has ‘DWTS’ Pro Peta Murgatroyd Given Birth? Maksim Chmerkovskiy Posts Photo from the Hospital


Baby boy Chmerkovskiy/Murgatroyd is almost here, apparently. Dancing with the Stars’ pro dancer and judge Maksim Chmerkovskiyposted a picture on his Instagram account that has some fans buzzing. Thanks to a photo and video posting of his pregnant fiancee and fellow Dancing with the Stars professional Peta Murgatroyd in the hospital, Maks is dropping some serious hints about his son. But has the new baby boy been born yet?

Early in the morning of January 2, Maks posted the following video, embedded below, of the couple heading to the hospital. The video was uploaded without caption or audio but many assumed that the baby’s imminent delivery was the reason Maks and Peta were headed to the hospital.

Maks later confirmed fans’ assumptions when he posted a picture of Peta that night putting on make-up in her hospital bed. Peta is still visibly pregnant, so Baby Chmerkovskiy (as the couple has called their son on social media) has not been born yet. Maks’ caption even points to the lack of birth as it reads, “But first…a little make up 😝”

For her part, likely since she is in the process of giving birth to another human being, Peta has been silent lately on social media about the baby’s arrival. ET Online reports that January 2 is the baby’s due date. Since the posting there has been no announcement by Maks or Peta on their son’s birth. There hasn’t even been a public comment on whether Peta went into labor or if the hospital visit is just a precautionary measure. The hospital stay comes just days after Maks posted the following video of Peta and himself celebrating New Years Eve and Peta beginning 2017 with a dance.


So what do you think? Are you excited for Maks and Peta’s baby to be born? Do you think she has already given birth? Do you think the pair will post videos of the baby on social media?

Dancing with the Stars will return for season 24 in 2017 on ABC.
