Maks Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd have been making major headlines this year—from welcoming their first child together to Peta partnering with Bachelor's Nick Viall on this season of Dancing With the Stars. But there's one major milestone that's still to come for this couple, and it's their wedding.
"In my personal life, I can't wait for my wedding in July," Maks told Vulkan Magazine. "Peta keeps trying to postpone it, and I'm like, 'No, I want to marry you!' We have this crazy dream of getting married in a castle so we want to try and make that happen—in New York!" Finally, the pair is in fact getting married!
The news comes over a year after Maks asked Peta to marry him with an epic proposal. Both Maks and Peta were in the company of Sway: A Dance Trilogy, and Maks decided to get down on one knee mid-performance in December of 2015.
Between wedding planning and Peta's pregnancy, the couple decided to put their nuptials on hold until this July. And even though Maks can't wait to marry Peta, he thinks they've already accomplished something great together—their son, Shai Alexander. "A trophy can absolutely not define who you are," he said. "It's an accomplishment from that moment but it doesn't have anything to do with who you are as a person, parent, or adult. My biggest accomplishment is my child."
