Although the parents-to-be initially wanted to wait to expand their family until after their summer 2017 wedding, they don’t mind the early surprise.

“The timing is perfect, actually,” Murgatroyd said. “I’ll have the baby in January and then I’ll still have about six months to prepare for the wedding.”

Chmerkovskiy agreed: “The baby will make a wonderful addition to the wedding party. A wonderful, tiny addition.”

Congratulations to her and Maks! I don’t understand the timeline though. If she is 13 weeks now, that means she was barely 2 months pregnant when she said DWTS had to ‘adjust costumes to hide the bump because people were noticing’.

What an awful picture! Looks like a man who had too much beer.

What do women see in him besides the body? He’s an arrogant ar se, and can’t even imagine him tearing himself away from the mirror long enough to dote on someone other than himself.

@gymluv, I wonder if it’s because Peta has such a low percentage of body fat and her abs were always washboard-flat that even a small bump is much more noticeable than on a woman with average body fat.

I’m a bit confused. (Not surprising, this is normal for me. lol) She’s due in January. So she’s 3 months along. OK, fine. DWTS ended a month and a half ago and she needed her costumes adjusted due to her pregnancy? She would have been only a few weeks along then…and she already needed alterations at that point in time?Maybe it has something to do with her body being so muscular due to dancing? I’m probably missing something here. Best of luck to mom and dad!

Is she still a heavy smoker?

Glad someone brought Peta’s smoking. Both her and Maks claim they are clean eating freaks, but both of them smoke like a chimney and drink like a fish. Guess we are gonna hear about every freakin’ minute of her pregnancy. Anything to stay in the public eye, even if it means p*mping out a fetus. And while Maks can be an arrogant azz, Peta can be too. She is just more subtle about it.

Happy for her and Maks. But it’s going to be a long 9 mos for us. We going to hear every single detail.

@patty – yes she is a smoker.

Baby bump? That looks like me after a good dinner.

gracie on

@ anonymous, I totally agree. Peta is barely three months along so this will be a VERY long pregnancy if various media sites chose to chronicle every moment. As for the smoking, I often wonder why some “oh so healthy” celebrities ignore the fact that smoking is far more dangerous than GMO’s or non organic food. A person can eat”clean” and exercise to body perfection but is he/she smokes, all that is totally negated. The thought of filling ones’ lungs with toxic sludge is simply disgusting.

The bikini picture looks lovely.

Make and Peta are liars. I do not see them as a genuine couple. I hope I am wrong! She played games with him and he went back to her!! Why sorry I do not trust her!! She loves him for his money not him!!!
