Peta and Maksim Are Coming Back To Dancing With The Stars!

Dancing With The Stars fans can breath a sigh of relief, because Peta Murgatroyd and Maks Chmerkovskiy are officially coming back. The couple appeared on Good Morning America on Tuesday to announce that new baby Shai won't stop them from hitting the ballroom, and parenthood hasn't quelled their competitive natures one bit.
"I’m definitely a little bit nervous but I’m very excited to get back," Murgatroyd said. "I’ve definitely missed the dance floor."
Despite being partners in parenting, the two pros are not afraid to go head to head on the show.
"I'm also at all not afraid of this one," Chmerkovsky added. "I don't know if everybody remembers the history but last time we were together on the same season, I won."
Although, he shouldn't be so cocky. We've seen how hard Murgatroyd has been hitting the gym since giving birth, and it seems like neither of them are going to let this new baby hold them back — even though they'll definitely miss him.
"This is the only difficult part about coming back on the show because it will just take time away from being with this dude," Chmerkovsky said. "But I just want to make her coming back and winning as difficult as possible."
Sounds like we have an intense season ahead when it premieres on March 2oth.
