Maks and I are so excited to announce the arrival of our son, Shai Aleksander Chmerkovskiy.
Born on January 4 at 5:34 in the morning, baby Chmerkovskiy came into this world at a healthy 7lbs-11oz and 54cm in length.
Shai (pronounced “shy” for the curious) and I are both doing great and Maks is probably the calmest, most serene I’ve ever seen him. Being a Daddy suits him; he even changed Shai’s first diaper! Overall, we’re settling in nicely. He’s sleeping in his crib every night and feeding regularly. I am exhausted, but so excited to have this little man home at last.
I’ll share more updates soon – including pictures! Until then, check out the really sweet feature People Magazine did on our nursery designed by the wonderful Vanessa Antonelli. You can read it here online or pick up your copy on the newsstands.
Again, thank you for all of your well wishes, blessings and patience during this exciting time. He’s lucky boy to be so loved by his family and amazing people like you.
