Maksim Chmerkovskiy has been a father for a little over a week — and is already loving it!
As you may recall, the ballroom dancer welcomed his first child, named Shai Aleksander, with fellow Dancing With The Stars vet Peta Murgatroyd back on January 4. And it seems as though Maksim has truly taken to his new role as he deemed “farts, poops, and throw-ups” as “the best” on Instagram.
However, the 36-year-old isn’t quite ready to share little Shai with the world as he posted:
It’s been one week plus one day of my fatherhood and I’m the happiest person that’s ever lived. I’m also feeling very protective and now understand what every parent in history have been going through for as long as humans have been giving birth. I don’t let too many people come see my son and I don’t want to put any of him on social media just yet. @petamurgatroyd and I just want to enjoy our little family, together with our loved ones, and take in all the precious moments which we’ll never get back. So be sensitive please. Or not. Either way, hope everyone’s year is off to an incredible start. Ours sure started with a bang ├░┼╕╦£┼á P.S. Farts, poops and throw-ups are the best!A photo posted by @maksimc on Jan 12, 2017 at 7:35pm PST
Awwww! As for Miz Murgatroyd, she too gave an update on her new born amid a thank you note to her many fans. She wrote:
“I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for all the well wishes for our little Shai. I’ve read all the beautiful blessings and he is without a doubt a lucky boy ├░┼╕╦£┬ì He is a healthy boy with an incredible appetite for food and love ├░┼╕╦£┼á .”
But alas, it sounds like the 30-year-old is in agreement with her man as she continued:
“We can’t wait to share him with you, but for the first most crucial weeks of his life we’re just keeping him for ourselves and soaking up these moments. Thank you for your patience and all of your love! ├ó┬¥┬ñ├ó┬¥┬ñ├ó┬¥┬ñ”
Although we do wonder, now that their son’s arrived, will the twosome FINALLY tie the knot? Oh, we hope so!
