Peta Murgatroyd is back to the Mirrorball!
Just a few months after she shared her intention to return to work after welcoming her baby boy, the dancer has disclosed she will be on “Dancing with the Stars” season 32. She already has a partner, who will be joining her and the other lineup of celebrities and professional dancers for the popular dance competition show, setting the stage for an exciting star-studded season.
Peta Murgatroyd Is Ready To Win The ‘DWTS’ Mirror Ball For The Third Time
“DWTS” season 32 is set to grace the screens this fall, airing on ABC and Disney+, with Alfonso Ribeiro and Julianne Hough co-hosting the show together for the first time. Announcing her own return to the series, Murgatroyd shared the official picture of her and her partner for the duration of the season, Barry Williams.
“The Brady Bunch” actor showed off his gleaming white teeth, grinning from ear to ear as he crossed his arms. He sparkled in a suit filled with sequins and velvety black lapels and pockets, balancing it with a pair of black pants and a matching undershirt.
His 37-year-old dance partner leaned into him, placing one hand around his shoulder and the other on her waist. Murgatroyd’s blond wavy locks flowed down her back, perfectly fitting with the shiny silver cold-shoulder dress and matching bracelet she wore. The two-time “DWTS” winner gushed in the caption:
“Let’s gooooo @thebarrywilliams ? My season 32 partner is an absolute gem! #dwts.”
Recognizing the effort she had put into getting herself in shape for the impending feat, one fan commented, “Bestie, you just had a baby ????wow,” and a second chimed, “So happy to see your on this season after having a new baby !!! Good luck to both of you for a great season!”
“I love that he’s your partner! great match! ❤️Have a super season!❤️,” a third person stated, as a fourth gushed, “*sighs* to have Johnny Bravo, oh l’m sorry Greg Brady as your partner is everything!” A fifth cybernaut added:
“Ahh soo happy you are back again! One of my favorite pros ever. Really hoping ya’ll go far this season maybe like in season 19 which was a fun one.”
Amid the happy reactions, it soon became apparent that others were not so pleased about production pairing Murgatroyd with Williams. As one critic pointed out, “They always do you dirty and put you with the oldest guy on the show only to be sent home early.”
Another disappointed fan noted, “I don’t know how I feel about this pairing. I hope he’s not voted off too soon. I love Peta and hope she stays for a few episodes.”
When she informed her supporters of her plan to get back to work post-childbirth, the mother of two had said, “I think you know this time around I’ll do it a little bit different[ly] in the beginning. You know I’m definitely looking to go back to work ASAP. It’s all about having the perfect amount of help.”
To that end, the “Faith, Hope & Love” planned to hire a “full-time” nanny, since her husband Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s parents did not live near them and her mother’s “green card” was taking a long time.
