Posting a photo of her rocking a barely-there bikini with her large bump on full display, the 30-year-old dancer wrote: “Oiling this buttercup up.” In the caption Peta added that she was 33 weeks along.
Peta, who’s expecting her first child with fiancé and fellow “Dancing With the Stars” pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy, has been flooding her Instagram with pregnancy updates and photos of her growing belly. Two weeks ago, Peta posted another baby bump picture telling her followers that the baby “will be here in no time!”
According to People magazine, Peta and Maks will welcome a baby boy in January. Over the summer, Peta gushed over her impending motherhood telling the outlet that she was looking forward to meeting their little bundle of joy. “My parents have wanted me to be pregnant for so long and Maks has been wanting a baby for a long time,” she said. “I can’t wait to be a mom!”
Maks also opened up about her pregnancy, telling Entertainment Tonight in September that despite Peta being pregnant, she hasn’t slowed down on her work obligations. “She doesn’t do what a normal pregnant lady does,” he said. “She’s still fully engaged with all our activities. She literally drove to San Diego from a convention show with her tanning line, straight changed and then here.”
“I’m like, ‘I can do this! Let’s go!’” she added.
News that Peta and Maks were expecting their first child surfaced in May, shortly after she won Season 22 of “Dancing With the Stars” with partner Nyle DiMarco. The happy couple didn’t confirm the baby news until July when Maks shared a sonogram picture. “Put your hand up if you’re a #babyChmerkovskiy and you can’t wait to drive your parents crazy! #cantwait #inlove #thatprofilethough,” he wrote.
