Morris relayed to People
how her first day meeting pro partner Maks Chmerkovskiy went and she dished: My first day of filming consisted of me, as a celebrity, coming in to have a “meet and greet” with my new dancing partner ... We chat for a bit and I soon find out he’s not only just a big, goofy teddy bear, but he’s also a new daddy to a mere 2-month-old son, Shai, which, for me, is a giant ice breaker. Let’s be real, there’s nothing’s worse than having to go into work with a young, strapping man without kids who doesn’t understand why I’m UTTERLY EXHAUSTED after my son was up for two hours crying the night before. Maks gets it, thank the Lord.
Just a couple months ago, Chmerkovskiy had his first child with fiancee Peta Murgatroyd. Murgatroyd is also a pro dancer on the show. (Instagram/HeatherRElizabeth
