Peta Murgatroyd is famed for her dancing skills. She took ballet classes since early childhood and at 16, she became a Latin dancer.
In 2013, Peta joined the Dancing with the Stars show and competed in almost all seasons since then. She won the title two times, with Donald Driver in 2012 and with Nyle DiMarco in 2016. Besides, she is known for participating in Burn the Floor dance production and Sway: A Dance Trilogy show.
Additionally, Peta tried her hand at acting in Faith, Hope & Love film and Why Women Kill TV series. She also launched a skincare line titled PETA JANE.
Murgatroyd got acquainted with Maksim Chmerkovskiy in 2009, but they were friends before romantic feelings arose between them in 2012. The lovebirds called it quits in a year before reuniting in 2014 and getting engaged in 2015 during one of their performances. In January 2017, Peta gave birth to son Shai and on July 8, she got hitched to Maksim.
A curious fact: Peta drew her first breath in New Zealand and relocated to Australia in infancy. In 2019, she became an American citizen.
