‘Dancing’ Baby: Maks Reveals Peta’s Due Date!

“Dancing with the Stars” pros Maks Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd are expecting their first baby… next year!

Maks revealed the due date to “Extra’s” AJ Calloway at a “DWTS” press day, explaining that Peta is at five and a half months and the little one's expected arrival date is Jan. 2.

Is Mad Maks, who is teamed with Amber Rose this season on “DWTS,” ready to be a dad? He told AJ, “I feel great… you truly don’t get it, no matter how many books you read and how much you know until [you are] in that experience. Peta is a rock star and is amazing.”

AJ also caught up with Ryan Lochte, who is looking for a second chance following his robbery scandal at the Rio Olympics.

“I want people to see a different side of me than what they already perceive me as,” said the athlete, who is partnered with Cheryl Burke.

Which is harder, swimming or dancing? Ryan was adamant, “Dancing by far. Oh my God, it is so hard.”

“I’m a swimmer, I’m not a dancer. I should not be on land. I should be in the water,” he joked.

Watch the video for more with the “Dancing” cast, including Jake T. Austin, who will be guest blogging for ExtraTV.com this season.

Season 23 premieres Sept. 12 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
