"I was so scared," Peta told the magazine. "Not only is this my first lead role, it's my first movie role ever."
The couple parlayed their "Dancing with the Stars" gigs into a successful marriage.
With a 97% audience score on RottenTomatoes.com, the movie is clicking with its target audience... but did Maks like it?
"I didn't see the movie before, and when I went to the premiere," he confided, "I was worried. 'What if she sucks?' But she didn't suck, she was actually really great!"

She said, "Having a baby really inspired me to share all of my experiences as a mom. He is the light of our lives and there's so much to talk about."
