The couple welcomed their first child together - a baby boy - just over a month ago.
Dancing with the Stars will announce their full cast for the new season on March 1. The former "DWTS" pro opened up about how she and Maks chose their baby name, admitting that "it took months and months".
Chmerkovskiy, 37, returned for season 23 last September after declaring in 2014 that he was "done" with the show. "So we gave him his middle name after Maks' dad Aleksandr (spelled a little differently to honor Shai's heritage but also make it unique to him)", she said.
"I've definitely missed the dance floor".

"I sense very robust debate about what ought to be in the replacement plan, but I think that's a good thing not a bad thing". But in practice, that means Americans would have to prove they chose the special enrollment period due to major life changes.
"I am definitely a little bit nervous, but I am very excited to get back", Murgatroyd shared with the GMA team. "I think it's going to be OK, and I'm going to take it slowly". "I don't care how many ['DWTS'] trophies she has". The breastfeeding dancer said, "I'm not looking forward to having huge boobs on the show. I actually contacted the costume designer and said, 'We need to have a meeting about this!'" She wants her body back and wants to win another title on the show.
Today, Chmerkoyskiy said he is smitten with his son and that being away from him to compete on the show will be tough. "I just want to be healthy".
Maks loves being a father and perhaps this played into his decision to come back to DWTS. When hearing Maks talk about the experience of fatherhood, it's clear how happy he is. "I think he's just more serene, more calm". "This is the only hard part about coming back on the show this time because it will take away from being with this dude", he said but then made light of the impending separation by saying, "...but like I said I just want to make her [Murgatroyd] coming back and winning as hard as possible".
