According to Dancing With the Stars pro Peta Murgatroyd, soon-to-be mother-of-two Kym Johnson is “not going to get much sleep” once her babies are born. The 41-year-old dancing pro is expecting twins with her husband and Shark Tank star, Robert Herjavec, and she has already turned to a fellow DWTS pro for advice.
“She’s been giving me some great advice [on] how she was through her pregnancy and what to expect,” Kym revealed to Entertainment Tonight during an interview at her workout studio. “I mean, she’s incredible. I can’t believe she went back to being a [DWTS] pro on the show — I think when the baby was like two months old.”
Like Peta, Kym is doing her best to stay active during her first pregnancy, but now that she’s in her third trimester, she’s had to start taking it easy. “I do a prenatal Pilates class on the reformer bed, which I love,” she said. “I do that a couple of times a week, just to still keep toned in my arms and my legs. Obviously, there are things that I can’t do. I can’t do sit-ups or lay flat on my back anymore, so I have to adjust the exercises.”
But she luckily hasn’t had to give up her love of dance. “The doctors all said that dancing was really safe to do through pregnancy because it’s a lot more low impact,” Kym continued. “I’m not tap dancing and jumping up and down [though].”
The first-time mom has continuously expressed her excitement for her bundles of joy, and since she wants to focus on her family, she doesn’t plan on returning to DWTS too soon. “I’m going to have two. I’ve waited so long for this so I feel I’m just going to enjoy the two,” she told ET. “I won’t be putting any dance shoes back on, that’s for sure. I’m just going to enjoy the babies and take my time getting back into shape.”
Kym previously gushed to Closer Weekly about how Robert has spoiled her during this pregnancy. “He’s so excited and already talking to them and telling stories,” she said. “There was a baby shower and I saw my family, so that was nice. [Robert] is the best. He spoiled me with a trip back home to Australia to see all my girlfriends.” So sweet!
