Murgatroyd uploaded a series of photos showing her growing belly. The expectant mother smiled and posed, wearing various outfits that exposed her tummy in the photos.
“It gives me great joy to finally announce that @maksimc and I are expecting our Chmerkovsky #2 [red heart emoji]she wrote in the description.
The TV star continued: “After 2 years of constant fighting and heartache, 3 miscarriages and a failed embryo transfer… we have a healthy bun in the oven :)) It was a shock to all of us and we found out just before I went for my second round of IVF.”
Her post was met with positive messages from her reality ballroom dance competition co-stars and her fans.
“MY PEETS! I love you so much! Can’t wait to see this adorable baby #2!! What a blessing,” wrote Witney Carson.
“Hey, we can finally tell the world!!! This belly makes me so happy [red heart emoji]. I love you so much and can’t wait for the baby to be born,” another added.
“Congratulations! I’m so happy for your happiness. I know you wanted it so badly. Good luck,” one fan commented.
Murgatroyd’s second child is due in June, confirmed by the New Zealand-born Latin American professional dancer. She wrote “coming June 2023” at the end of her post.
The news comes six years after the couple welcomed their first child, son Shai, into the world in January 2017, according to Page Six.
Murgatroyd and Chmerkovskiy have been openly talking about their pregnancy for years. Last October, they admitted to E! The news that they were still determined to have a child, even after IVF failed.
“We still want a family that is bigger than we are. We will continue to try and see what happens,” Chmerkovskiy said at the time.
In an exclusive interview with People published this week, Murgatroyd revealed that their second pregnancy went naturally without the aid of science or technology.
“All natural, it happened. I didn’t even know I was pregnant until I felt really sick. I danced with her through Dancing with the Stars. I started feeling weird, I started feeling a little sick and a little bloated and didn’t want to test for weeks,” she told the outlet.
