The waiting game is finally over!
A huge congratulations is in order for Dancing With the Stars alums Maksin Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd who just welcomed their son into the world! Peta actually gave birth on Monday in New York City but it just announced today.
Not only did they reveal that their child had been born but Maksin actually tweeted his name. Can you take any guesses? The moniker is unique, beautiful and stays true to their heritage. Say hello to Shai Aleksander Chmerkovskiy.

Aww! While no photos have been released yet, Maksim did post a few of Peta getting ready for the delivery. In true dancer fashion, she was applying make up from her delivery bed! LOL! He captioned the shot, "But first...a little make up 😝."
Peta and Maksim announced their pregnancy over the summer after rumors swirled that they were expecting. But, this baby news didn't come as a shock to the world because Peta was always open about wanting to start a family. She even told People magazine just a little over a year ago that she wanted a boy first and then a girl. She said, "I would like to start [having kids] pretty soon...A little boy, and then a little girl."
Looks like her wish has come true!
It's amazing how much they have shared with the world on their journey to becoming parents. Not only did they express how much they wanted to start a family but also milestones in Peta's pregnancy. Fans were able to see photos of the baby shower as well as the cake that announced the sex of their child!
The dancer pros are set to get married in July 2017 and we can't wait to see if Skai will take part in the nuptials. Of course, these two always do things over-the-top so we have a feeling their wedding will be no different!
Make sure to congratulate Peta and Maksim on the birth of their son in the comments below!
