Update: Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd married on July 8, 2017, at Oheka Castle in Long Island, New York.
Maksim and Peta Engagement
It was supposedly not a Love at First Sight for Maksim and Peta. It was the love that grew after they were together in Dancing With The Star. The couple has shared their love story. Here it is:
“I thought he was arrogant,”
Murgatroyd said in the current issue of PEOPLE about meeting her future fiancé in 2009 when they both starred in the Broadway production of Burn the Floor.
“Okay, that’s a defense mechanism. I think she was in love with me at first sight and just doesn’t want to admit it,”
Chmerkovskiy retorts with a smile to his bride-to-be. Peta added:
“I learned to like him because I found out he wasn’t that arrogant,” admits Murgatroyd. “He was really generous to the entire cast, and our friendship grew and grew.”
But it started as a friendship and took years to blossom into love. And once it did, the professional dancers had a break up before Chmerkovskiy felt he was “in a position” where he was ready to propose.
“I think it’s awesome we have a massive history,”
says Chmerkovskiy, 35 and adds
“It’ll make a great story to tell our kids one day.”
Murgatroyd, 29, had an attraction for him but because he was engaged to his fellow DWTS pro dancer Karina Smirnoff and she was dating her future DWTS costar Damian Whitewood, things did not move forward for them.
Things were going okay until, as Murgatroyd puts it, “out of nowhere,” Chmerkovskiy called it quits after less than a year of dating. She said:
“My heart was broken, But when we were driving to the airport after the breakup talk, he literally asked me why I was taking all my bags and clothes back. I was like, ‘We just broke up. Why would I leave anything behind?’ That’s when I knew it wasn’t really over for forever.”
And she was right. Maksim said:
“I realized right away that I’d made a mistake, So I would take every opportunity to hover around.”
The couple then reunited after three months i.e., by October 2014.
“I dodged a bullet [by getting her back] because she could have fallen in love with somebody else and this never would’ve happened,”
says Chmerkovskiy, who proposed to her after the Dec. 5 performance of Sway: A Dance Trilogy at the Olympia Theater in Miami. He said:
“She’s my best friend, She makes me a better man.”
