Washington D.C. [USA], Jan. 5 : The 'Dancing With the Stars' pros Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd have recently welcomed a tiny dancer as they become first-time parents of a baby boy.

The new dad took to his Twitter handle to share the name of their little bundle of joy as he wrote, "Shai Aleksander Chmerkovskiy. 01/04/17 5:34am"

"This is, without a doubt, the best thing that has ever happened to us!" the couple said in a statement as reported by E! Online.

Earlier, Maks shared a video of them apparently en route to the hospital in the dark early a.m. hours-"Hoping for a very smooth delivery for Peta and hope Maks doesn't pass out! Best of luck to a very healthy little guy and God Bless you all"-followed by a pic of Peta in her hospital bed touching up her mascara.

The couple, who got engaged in December 2015, are planning for a New York City wedding in July 2017.
