Momma’s biggest fan! Peta Murgatroyd recently admitted that her 14-month-old-son, Shai, loves dancing with her and her husband, Maksim Chmerkovskiy. “He loves music,” the Dancing With the Stars pro told Us Weekly in a new interview. “We’re trying to introduce him to that every day.”
She added, “He sits on our hip and we take him around the room and dance with him. He loves that.” How cute?
Peta previously confessed that Shai loves to watch her on DWTS as well. This probably means that he’s her youngest fan — but we’re sure he’s her favorite. Honestly, at first, we were a little surprised to find out that he could recognize his mom since he’s so little, but apparently Peta and Maks have a very smart baby on their hands.
“While we danced last week, my nanny actually said that [Shai] recognized me on TV,” she told Entertainment Tonight in a previous interview. “Last season — when he was really young — he didn’t recognize me when I came into the trailer to see him, because I had so much makeup on and hair. He was like, ‘Who are you?'”
Oh my goodness, that might be the cutest thing we’ve ever heard! She even admitted that she brings little Shai to work with her so he can watch his parents dance. “I don’t keep him here all day, just a little bit,” she continued. “Just so I get my fix.”
How sweet — it sounds like Peta and Maks have already developed a great rhythm when it comes to dancing and raising Shai together. It’s no surprise that they are already talking about their next baby. Who says you can’t have it all?
We can’t even imagine competing every week while being pregnant. Talk about draining… as for Maks he is pretty adamant about adding to their family. “I can’t wait for more,” he told Us. Peta quipped, “He would have a baby every year if he could! That means I would be constantly fat. I think three is a good number.” So do we!
