Baby Chmerkovskiy has officially made his TV debut!
Just one month after Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd welcomed their first child together, son Shai, the happy parents invited Good Morning America into their New Jersey home to meet the adorable newborn. While chatting with host Paula Faris, the two discussed how their lives have changed since Shai's arrival, and gave an update on their upcoming nuptials.
When asked who Shai most resembles, Peta was quick to reply, exclaiming, "I would have to say me."
"I was hoping that he'd look like me and have her personality," added Maksim, who also joked he changed the baby's first "and last" diaper. "I'm just worried a little bit now because he looks like her."
"I specifically wanted to keep him very private from the beginning because we wanted him to ourselves," she explained. "I think he's just so special that we wanted those moments, those first moments, to be for ourselves."
"And you know, there's going to come a time where he's going to be with us walking hand-in-hand down the street and everyone's going to be able to see him," she continued. "And there's so many moments and opportunities that are going to come up very soon where you just, you can't hide him any longer."
Maksim chimed in, adding, "This is our child. Every time somebody comes over, you kind of share him with somebody else."
Peta also said that she's noticed a change in her fiancé.
"I think he's just more serene, more calm. He's a dad now," she explained. "I mean, we have these massive responsibilities now hanging over our heads and I think it's just, it really sinks in when you see your child for the first time."
"It's very scary," Maksim added. "I find myself sort of portraying like, 'I got this,' and then on the inside I'm like, 'I don't got this. I don't got this.'"
And on top of being parents, the two are also in the middle of planning a three-day, 300-guest wedding.
"I said to [Maks] the other day, it was a little stressful," Peta dished. "I had a moment of, 'Should we put [the wedding] on hold for a little bit?'”
"I think one of the moms will probably carry [Shai] down and he'll be all suited up and looking good,” she continued.
In addition to Shai's appearance on GMA, the little bundle of joy also made his debut on Peta's lifestyle blog, All Things Fam & Glam, on Friday. Wearing a bright red top and sucking on a binky, the newborn adorably cuddles up next to mom and dad in the sweet pic.
"Thank you all for the support, excitement and patience you've shown my new little family," wrote Peta. "I've received so much love from so many sources that can't wait to share this huge piece of my heart with you all."
"We finally settled on [the name] Shai, pronounced 'shy' and means 'gift' in Hebrew," she added. "Honestly, it's a perfect fit because from the very beginning, we felt like this little life we made was the most precious gift God could grant us."
