Insights Into Peta Murgatroyd’s Age, Net Worth & Husband (Maksim Chmerkovskiy)

Dancing with the stars champions always have an amazing spot in the limelight and so has Peta Murgatroyd. The blonde bombshell first gained fame as a member of the cast of TV dance production “Burn the Floor” but became prominent after winning the dance show competition twice.

Beyond dancing, Peta is doing well as a businesswoman. She has her own line of skin care products named Peta Jane. Here’s everything to know about the beauty including her age, height, net worth, and more.

Who is Peta Murgatroyd and How Old is She?

Peta was born on July 14, 1986, in New Zealand. She grew up in Perth, Western Australia. She caught interest in dancing as a child and enrolled to learn classical ballet. After years of training, Peta stopped her ballet training to heal from an ankle injury. She made a comeback later on but this time changed her focus to Latin dancing. In 2002, she emerged as the W.A Amateur Latin State Champion and the following year, she bagged the title once again with a second position in the Great World City Championships.

Peta Murgatroyd would later join the Burn the Floor dance production and began traveling around for dance performance. In 2009 when the dance group got a spot on Broadway, Murgatroyd was the lead female dancer. In 2011, she joined the cast of Dancing with the Stars as one of the dance troupe in season 12. She later became a regular member of the professional cast in season 13. Her first dance partner in the show was basketball player Metta World Peace but unfortunately, they were the first to be removed in the show. This unsuccessful stint didn’t make Peta give up her dream. She gave it another try competing on season 14 where she danced as a professional dancer alongside football player Donald Driver. Good enough, she and her partner emerged the winner, making her the second professional to win after finishing last the past season.

Apart from dancing, Peta has dipped her toes in acting as well. She recently finished filming her first starring role in the film “Faith Hope & Love”. She hopes to engage in more acting projects in the future. Peta is also making serious money with the launch of her glowy tanning skin care products.

Peta Murgatroyd is married to fellow Dancing with the Stars’ dancer, Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The two first met at Broadway dance show Burn the Floor when Maksim walked in with his ex-fiancee Karina to headline the show. The two didn’t get to talk much but Peta perceived Maksim as a domineering Russian guy. That impression quickly changed after she got signed to Dancing with the stars and got to meet him again.

Their relationship started in 2012 following their first casual dinner outing to discuss some issues concerning Dancing with the Stars TV show. During the night out, they began flirting, laughing and eventually kissed each other good night. This became the beginning of a beautiful union as Maksim proposed to her in 2015 at a performance of SWAY: A Dance Trilogy in Miami. In 2017, the duo walked down the aisle in a castle decorated with pink roses and filled by 300 guests (including family and friends).

Just like his wife, he started his dancing career at an early age of 4. His younger brother Valentine Chmerkovskiy is also a professional dancer. Maksim got trained in both Latin and ballroom dance. After moving with his family to New York, USA, in his teen days, he started dancing to entertain customers in a local Russian restaurant. Today, he has become a professional dancer to reckon with.
