DWTS power couple Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy have finally publicly debuted their little bundle of joy! Their son Shai Aleksander Chmerkovskiy made his first social media appearance this past week.

Peta took to her blog to explain the meaning behind her son’s name. She writes that choosing a name that they both loved and had meaning for them was a challenge. They eventually chose Shai (pronounced ‘shy’), because it means “gift” in Hebrew.

Additionally, the couple wanted a short name for their son, as his last name is “kind of a mouthful”, explains Murgatroyd.

Maks chose the baby’s middle name in honor of his father, but with a slightly different spelling to make it unique.

Congrats to the happy family!
