The three-tiered cake that Maksim designed read “Happy 30th Peta, I love you both” in blue frosting and had adorable blue baby booties.

It’s official – Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy have officially confirmed that they’re going to be parents!
While the news was first reported last month, this is the first time the couple has spoken publicly and confirmed they’re expecting a baby.
“I can’t wait to provide this baby with the tools to become a beautiful, kind person,” Maksim told People. “And they’ll have the best sneaker collection.”
“I was so sick,” Peta added about her morning sickness, which she sustained while competing and winning Dancing with the Stars.
“I’m looking forward to nurturing something and just having the baby be the center of our world. I’m looking forward to putting all our energy into this beautiful soul,” Maksim added.
“The timing is perfect, actually,” Peta continued. “I’ll have the baby in January and then I’ll still have about six months to prepare for the wedding.” Maksim said, “The baby will make a wonderful addition to the wedding party. A wonderful, tiny addition.”
Val Chmerkovskiy and brother Maksim partner up for a dance on stage during opening night of their Maks & Val: Our Way Tour earlier in the week in Melbourne, Fla.
The two pro dancer brothers celebrated on stage with a cake after the show and the cast of dancers.
“They co-choreographed, co-produced and co-created it and the result makes clear their abilities extend beyond the dance floor. They’ve used their unlikely personal journey as a through-line and, at least for the first half of the show, it delivers with an impact and substance that was missing when another famous DWTS pair – Derek and Julianne Hough – came through town with their sibling act two years ago,” one review of the show wrote.
Val thanked the fans after the first show, writing, “Wow what a night. thank you Melbourne, thank you for your time your presence it was a night I’ll never forget.”

Sharna Burgess heads out of the dance studio in Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon (May 3).
The 30-year-old pro dancer joined fellow pros Peta Murgatroyd, her fiance Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Julz Tocker, Keo Motsepe as well as celebs Jodie Sweetin and Nyle DiMarco for practice.
“There were a couple of wardrobe mishaps that happened to me last night! It turns out things happen in threes!” Sharna wrote in her blog after Monday night’s show, addressing her malfunctions. “The first was I forgot to put my hood on for the solo dance, I had the now very well-known ‘nip slip’ on national television, and lastly I forgot to take off the tear-away skirt at the end of our Team Dance. I guess it just shows this can happen to the best of us. I clearly had no idea about the wardrobe malfunction situation!”
She continued, “Tom [Bergeron] had to step in front of me on live, national TV to tell me to pull up my dress. I don’t think I have ever been a brighter shade of red—I think my skin matched my hair!”
“I was so embarrassed, not just about the situation, but about the fact that I seriously had no idea it even happened! I am grateful everyone made light of the situation and it was not as embarrassing as it could’ve been, but I will forever be in the nip slip category of television,” Sharna added.
