Dancing with the Stars pros Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy have babies on the brain — just weeks after announcing they're engaged!
“I would just like to bask in this engagement bliss for a little bit. Maybe for a year. Maybe a little less,” Peta, 29, said in a new joint interview with her handsome fiancé. “But I would like to start [having kids] pretty soon. A little boy, and then a little girl.”

“A little girl first, then a little boy. I think an older girl would be more responsible. I was an exceptional older brother, but I think that was just a one-in-a-billion thing,” Maksim, 35, said, referring to his younger sibling, DWTS pro dancer Valentin Chmerkovskiy.

“You are one in a billion,” Peta replied during their sit-down with People. “Maks always wants to take care of everybody, which, to me, was the biggest sign that he’ll be an amazing father and take care of me the rest of my life.”

The couple first became an item in 2012 and dated for 10 months before calling it quits. They rekindled their romance earlier this year and Maksim proposed to Peta in early December onstage during a performance of their new show, Sway: A Dance Trilogy, in Miami, Fla.
“I’m not just looking forward to the next 20 years. I’m looking forward to the 20 years after that, when the kids are out of the house and it’s just the two of us again. I can’t wait," Maksim added of his future with Peta.
