Peta Murgatroyd Was Trying For Years to Get Pregnant Again
Murgatroyd revealed in an interview with People that she and her husband were trying for years to have another baby after welcoming their son Shai in 2017.
The dancer was previously open about her infertility journey and her IVF hopes throughout the process, though she shared that she had let go of hope going into her second round of IVF.
“I literally was praying to the gods about this, but it’s so funny because I was at a stage where I had let [the idea of pregnancy] go,” she told the People as part of the pregnancy announcement. “I was about to call it. I had called the IVF doctor to start my second round again and I had let it go. As in I was like, ‘If I’m a one-time mom, if I have one child for the rest of my life, I have to be happy with it.’ ”
