Peta Murgatroyd on Her Wedding, Mom Life, and Those Sean Spicer & DeMario Jackson 'DWTS' Rumors
"Extra's" Renee Bargh caught up with Peta Murgatroyd at the “Kidnap” premiere in L.A., where she dished on her “magical” wedding to Maks Chmerkovskiy, their baby boy Shai, and how she would feel about partnering up with Sean Spicer or DeMario Jackson on "Dancing with the Stars."
Peta told Renee that tying the knot last month with Maks at Oheka Castle in Huntington, New York was “magical,” thanks especially to an impromptu photo opp!
She explained a “rainbow came out after we had the ceremony and we were like, 'Oh my gosh, quick get photos before it goes away!'”
While Peta dances in front of millions each week on “DWTS,” she was “very nervous walking down the aisle.”
“The dress was so big, and I'm not used to wearing such big dresses, and it was super heavy, but I was worried I was going to trip on it. At one stage my heel did get caught… but I just kept on walking.”
The most memorable moment was exchanging vows. “When we were saying our vows it was very special, just the fact that you are looking at the person you are going to spend the rest of your life with...” she gushed.
Peta said that Maks skipped the premiere to stay home with baby Shai, 7 months old, while “Mama is out on the town.”
“He is great,” she said of Shai. "He is standing up… he is really strong. Two teeth are coming through. We have some nights of screaming at the moment with the pain. You just get up as soon as you hear anything… mommy mode just kicks in and you just get straight up… I put the pacifier back in and he is fine.”
She said of her days at home with the baby, “When you are a full-time mom you are a full-time mom, there is nothing you do more during your day than take care of your child. It gets overwhelming, but it is amazing.”

Murgatroyd said she and Maks don't know if they will be returning to “Dancing with the Stars” next season. “We would like to, absolutely. We love the show, but everything has to work out with timing.”
Would she want to be paired with Sean Spicer or DeMario Jackson if they were to join the show? “Maybe not,” Peta admitted. “I don't want to be in any controversy or anything. I just want a clean season. I don't want to be involved in any untoward things. I need to be clean and focused.”
