Baby No. 2? Peta Murgatroyd Dishes on Plans to Expand Their Family: ‘Maks Needs a Little Girl’
It looks like Peta Murgatroyd’s family may be growing soon! The Dancing With the Stars alum, 32, has plenty on her plate with her successful career, husband Maksim Chmerkovskiy a.k.a. Maks and son Shai, however, she really wants to have a baby girl soon.
Peta wants another mini-me around to even things out at home. “There’s a lot of testosterone in our house,” she told Life & Style exclusively. “Having a girl to balance it out would be great!” The professional dancer hopes to have another baby whenever the timing feels right. “We kind of have to plan things around work, but I don’t want to wait too long. Maybe three to six months. Maks needs a little girl,” she revealed.
Peta may be super career-driven, but it’s evident she enjoys being a mom the most. “It puts everything into perspective,” she said about motherhood. Of course, she couldn’t help but gush about her little one. “He’s the cutest little munchkin. I fall more in love with him every day. People say he’s the perfect mix of me and Maks,” she continued. “He’s feisty like his dad, and then he’ll be watching a cartoon and one of the characters will cry and he’ll start to cry, and I’m like, ‘That’s so me!'”
The Australian beauty revealed returning to Dancing With the Stars, isn’t entirely out of the question. She would love to go back, as long as it works out with her schedule. For now, she’s taken an interest in acting, though. She stars in Faith, Hope & Love, which hits theaters on March 15.
Despite being super busy, Peta still makes time for her hubby, 39. “We do little getaway weekends. We can do whatever we want for 48 hours. You wake up and say, ‘Maybe I’ll spend two hours curling my hair today,’ or, ‘Wanna order room service? Let’s do it!’ [Laughs] Those things are really fun for us now!” That’s not a bad way to spend a weekend if you ask us.
