The world has yet to see photos of Dancing with the Stars pros Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s newborn son but the couple is keeping fans updated on their journey as first-time parents on social media.
On Instagram, Maks posted a sweet photo of the couple, marking their first date of the year. It also comes with a caption of their conversation — which is both funny and relatable to breastfeeding moms.
Peta, on the other hand, posted a picture of herself taken eight days after she gave birth.
“I left the hospital looking five months pregnant,” she wrote. “Many people think a woman should shrink right back to her pre-birth weight immediately. That is just not the truth for most. The female body is incredible and resilient, but healing and strengthening take time. Now it’s time for patience and hard work. Lots of love to all the new mamas out there on the journey. ðŸ’ªðŸ¼ðŸ’ªðŸ¼ #yesihaveascrunchieinmyhair #shaiiswortheverypound”
Not surprisingly, the Dancing with the Stars pro was praised by her followers for keeping it real.
Maks and Peta welcomed their first son together, Shai Aleksander Chmerkovskiy, on January 4, 2017 at 5:34 am. Since then, the couple has been keeping their baby away from the spotlight though they have been posting updates about his well-being on social media.
Dancing with the Stars will return for season 24 in 2017 on ABC.
