Peta, 29, is pregnant with the engaged couple’s first child, multiple sources confirm to People.com.

Maksim, 36, popped the question to Peta onstage during their show Sway: A Dance Trilogy in Miami, Florida in December (15), and they have made no secret of their desire to have kids.

“I would like to start (having kids) pretty soon,” she previously told People magazine after the engagement. “A little boy, and then a little girl.”

Maksim added, “I’m not just looking forward to the next 20 years. I’m looking forward to the 20 years after that, when the kids are out of the house and it’s just the two of us again… I can’t wait.”

The dancer announced their engagement on Instagram by posting a photograph of him down on one knee in front of Peta as she covers her mouth with her hands in shock. In the caption, he wrote, “She said yes”.

The couple has been dating on and off for three years.
