"Dancing with the Stars" pro dancer Peta Murgatroyd may be 20 weeks pregnant, but that don't mean she's going to stop working out her bod'.
The dancing queen, who is due with a baby boy in January, took to Instagram on Friday, August 19, to post a video of her doing several different exercises despite her growing baby bump. In the post, she also wrote a lengthy caption explained that she has keep working out in order to feel good.
The Australian, who is engaged to Maksim Chmerkovskiy, wrote, "I am loving keeping fit whilst I'm pregnant. I'm 20 weeks and although I could sit on the couch watching TV all day, I have to get up and keep moving! To me it's imperative for women to have an active pregnancy. It's better for your well being and it's great for your baby (within the limits your doctor has given you of course)."
The 30-year-old also understands that people will have opinions on her exercising this far along in her pregnancy, writing, "Everyone will have an opinion about this, and that's ok, but until I'm too big that I can't move, I will be doing some sort of exercise each day. Believe me, it's not easy, I'm not used to this body I have at the moment, and I'm heavier than I have ever been."
She also added that she and her fiance are having some good giggles about her growing bump. "@maksimc and I laugh about the most, are the fact that I have to roll out of bed (I don't want to squish the baby🙈)," said Petra. "I use my hands to push myself off the couch and he has to boost my butt out of his low car 😂 Ladies, your health is everything and we have to laugh 😉."
On Saturday, Aug. 19, Peta posted a workout selfie with the caption, "Gym time #letsgooooo." Looks like she has no signs of slowing down!
The pro dancers got engaged in December 2015, after an on and off romance. Peta and Maksim first got together back in 2012, but split in 2013, and then reunited in early 2015.
Maksim proposed in Miami, Florida during a performance of "Sway: A Dance Trilogy." The dancer got down on one knee and said in front of the crowd, "I'm in love with you and I want to be in love with you for the rest of my life. Will you marry me?"
Obviously Peta, who just won season 22 of "Dancing with the Stars" with partner Nyle DiMarco, said yes -- and it looks like things have been going swimmingly since then!
