Pro dancers Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy welcomed their first child together on January 4, and both announced they will return to work for season 24 of Dancing With the Stars. Murgatroyd, however, says her the transition to working mom will be difficult.
“I thought before I would be like, ‘Oh my god, I can’t wait to get back to work. You know, I just want to go and, you know, he’ll be fine,’” Murgatroyd explains. “No. I literally don’t want to leave the house to go shopping. I miss him, I miss his face every time I close the door.”
For now, Murgatroyd says she will continue to bring Baby Shai everywhere she goes, as she enjoys showing him off.
