Shai Aleksander Chmerkovskiy entered the world on Wednesday morning.Chmerkovskiy and Murgatroyd both announced Shai Aleksander’s arrival on Twitter.Not only that, but the 37-year-old also has more important things to worry about.Namely, his newborn son, Shai, who he shares with fellow "DWTS" returning pro, Peta Murgatroyd.I had one job: I had to teach somebody how to dance…and I didn’t care how I looked in the process.” Chmerkovskiy recalled that he had a “giant fight with my producers” over how little he cared about anything on the show besides teaching his partners to prepare for the Monday-night dance offs.

He also attributed the couple's seamless transition to parenthood to the "invaluable" help of their baby nurse, who has made the balance of parenting and rehearing for "DWTS" easier to manage.
So honored to have been apart of such a magical day yesterday. If the celebration and amount of love that radiated from the two of you and those around you that love you is any indication of what your marriage and life together will be like I can only hope to one day find a partnership and love like that.
Thank you for including me in your beautiful family and being part of your special day.
