Peta Murgatroyd Doesn't Know If She'll Return to 'DWTS'

Peta Murgatroyd gave birth to son Shai Aleksander in January, and the new mom has since returned to her day job as a pro on Dancing With the Stars, although she dished to Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet of the Kidnap premiere in Los Angeles that she's still deciding whether to head back to the ballroom once again.

"To be honest, we don't know yet," she said of herself and her fellow DWTS pro/husband, Maksim Chmerkovskiy. "We're sort of waiting to hear things, waiting to see what our schedules are gonna be like, so, yeah, I mean stayed tuned."

The 31-year-old added that since Shai's arrival, she has much more to consider when deciding what to take on.

"There's a schedule, as I said before. I don't want to spend 10 hours away a day from my child, so those things factor into it for me," Murgatroyd explained. "I'm a mom now and that comes first you know?"

As far as baby Shai, the dancer was happy to share her favorite part about being a mom.

"Seeing the little changes every single day," she said. "I mean he's growing up so fast it's exactly what people say it is. You know, you blink and then they're one. You know so he's nearly seven months now, and he's standing up. He's nearly walking by himself. It's amazing. It's an incredible journey to be on."

Despite being unsure about her DWTS return, Murgatroyd noted, "I feel good. I really feel like I'm getting to my top shape again."

When asked if she's ready to dance again, she replied, "Hell yeah."
