Max Chmerkovsky believes Peta Murgatroyd’s pregnancy was “a long wait”.
The 43-year-old dancer and Peta, 36, recently announced they were pregnant with their second child after having previously suffered multiple miscarriages, and Max admitted he was thrilled with the news. .
He said: “[It’s] incredible news. Long time no see. We have waited over two years for this baby to be born…we can’t wait. “
The loving couple already has a 6-year-old son named Shy. However, Max admits that the road to her pregnancy was “very stressful” for the two.
He told Us Weekly:
Peta has had three miscarriages and has been open about fertility treatments in the past on social media.
However, the dancer recently announced that she is expecting another child.
She said: “It was all natural. I didn’t even know I was pregnant until I felt really sick.
“We danced ‘Dancing With the Stars’ together. I started feeling weird, I started feeling a little sick, I started feeling a little bloated and I didn’t want to test it for weeks.”
Peta took a pregnancy test around “6-7 weeks” of pregnancy and was shocked by the results.
She explains: “I think it was the fastest positive I’ve ever seen in my life.
“It happened so fast and I was just shocked. It was completely different from my past pregnancies. I was not like I jumped for joy.” It was like, “Okay, let’s see what happens. I’ve done this four other times and it didn’t work.” So I was very skeptical. I didn’t even talk to Max for a while.
