"Dancing with the Stars" pros Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy have revealed the name of their newborn son.
Alongside a sweet photo of their newborn, Murgatroyd announced his name is Rio John Chmerkovskiy and he was born on June 18. She shared that Rio weighed 8 pounds, 6 ounces at birth and is "thriving!"
"We are overjoyed to share our baby boy with all of you," she wrote in the caption of the post.
Mentioning the couple's older son, 6-year-old Shai, she added, "@shai.aleksander is already the best big brother and we all feel very complete[.] Life is good XO."
Chmerkovskiy announced that he and Murgatroyd had become parents of two in an Instagram post shared on Sunday. His post featured a photo of himself holding their newborn.
"Happy Father's Day to me!" Chmerkovskiy wrote alongside the photo.
Their posts were met with well-wishes and plenty of excitement for the new arrival.
Murgatroyd announced her pregnancy in January after having experienced what she called "constant struggle and heartache" to have a second child.
"After 2 years of constant struggle and heartache, 3 miscarriages and a failed embryo transfer … we have a healthy bun in the oven," she wrote alongside a photo showing off her pregnancy. "It was a shock to all of us and we found out right before I was going in for my second round of IVF."
Murgatroyd added at the time, "This news has brought extraordinary bliss to our family and we have so much to be grateful for."
Chmerkovskiy and Murgatroyd married in July 2017.
