Peta Murgatroyd Reveals Why She Returned as a Pro For 'Dancing With The Stars' This Season

When Peta Murgatroyd was announced as a pro for season 24 on Dancing With The Stars, we were pretty surprised, but also thrilled that she was coming back.

In a new blog post, Peta opened up about her decision to return, just a few weeks after giving birth to her first child, Shai, with fiance Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

“I put so much time and energy into being the best possible mum that, frankly, the call from DWTS caught me off guard,” she admits, going on to say that the show was very accommodating with Shai and her schedule, once she did say yes.

There was a family partner brought in to help Peta manage all her obligations, a nanny for Shai, and more.

Peta adds, “It was never an easy decision, but when I look back, after having Shai and saying yes to the man I love, it was the best decision I ever made.”

You can read her entire blog on her website, All Things Fam and Glam.
