Peta Murgatroyd’s Son Shai Makes Her Smile! ‘DWTS’ Pro’s Cutest Quotes About Motherhood

Peta Murgatroyd has had baby No. 2 on the mind for quite some time now, and it’s because she loves being the mom of her only son, Shai, so much. The Dancing With the Stars pro and her husband, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, are always gushing over their little man with sweet quotes and photos on social media.

Peta first welcomed Shai in January 2017. Just months after the birth of her little bundle of joy, the Latin dance star walked down the aisle with the Ukrainian choreographer. Since then, they’ve become one of Hollywood’s cutest trios.

While Peta has dedicated her life to being the best mother to her kiddo, she also credits Maksim for being a role model to Shai. In honor of Father’s Day 2021, the Faith, Hope and Love actress shared a touching tribute to praise her man for raising their child with endless devotion.

“My forevers … thank you for being an outstanding papa, @maksimc,” she sweetly penned alongside a handful of family photos. “Honoring you today as the dedicated father that you are is a joy. You’re simply the best and WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH.”

Peta adores parenthood more than anything, so she can’t help but want to share her love by having more children in the future. “We’re talking about it now and trying to [have more],” the Mirror Ball Champion shared with Us Weekly in October 2019. “I would love to have more kids.”

While Maks echoed his wife’s sentiments, he said he’s leaving the decision to expand their family in Peta’s hands. “It’s her timing, it’s her career. But when it’s go time, I’m ready to go,” he once dished to In Touch.

However, the longtime lovebirds did reveal whether they’re hoping to add another boy or girl into their brood once the time is right. “I want it on the record … right here, right now. I want a girl. I want a girl more than anything, and if it’s going to be another boy, it’s going to be incredible,” he gushed to ET in February 2020. “But I’m the girl dad.”

The loving mama added, “I feel the same way because we were speaking about it, if it’s another boy, like, ‘Oh my gosh, how am I going to love another boy how I love my [son] Shai?’” she wondered. “Maybe a little girl will be different?”
