Another exciting season of Dancing with the Stars is all set to premiere on September 18, 2017. Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd on DWTS 2017 are ready to dance their way into our hearts —and into the finals! Here is everything you need to know about Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd on Dancing with the Stars.

Singer-songwriter Nick Lachey is on Dancing with the Stars this season, and is paired up with sensational professional dancer, Peta Murgatroyd. Lachey was definitely more than happy when he was first introduced to his partner and can’t wait to strut his stuff on the ballroom floor.

The Dancing with the Stars cast members instantly hit it off and could barely hold in their laughter during their interview together. In fact, Murgatroyd even attended Lachey’s son’s birthday party with her baby boy.

Season 25 of Dancing with the Stars will be fun to watch as the singer and his partner will face off against Lachey’s wife, Vanessa Lachey, and Murgatroyd’s husband, Maksim Chmerkovskiy. So, it looks like it will be a battle of the spouses this season!

In an interview, Vanessa Lachey explained, “The goal we’ve decided as a family unit, a fam bam, [is] let’s get to the finals together.” She continued, “ The gloves come off, I guess. We just don’t want it to be awkward, like, week three that I’m sitting in the audience watching him and Peta dance or vice versa.” Her husband added, “If we’re sitting in the audience week three, I’m going to be embarrassed to show up to the ballroom.”

Dancing with the Stars will premiere tonight (September 18, 2017), and it already looks like Lachey has worked extremely hard to get his steps right. If you are a fan of Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd and want to learn more about them, keep reading!

Peta Murgatroyd is a Professional Dancer on Dancing with the Stars

Professional Latin dancer Peta Murgatroyd is competing once again on Dancing with the Stars for season 25. She has been a professional dancer on the series for almost 12 seasons.

At the age of four, Murgatroyd began dancing ballet. However, due to an ankle injury she sustained when she was 16, she had to give it up, and decided to learn Latin dance instead.

Murgatroyd started her stint on Dancing with the Stars in season 12 as a member of the dance troupe. In season 13, she finally joined the professional Dancing with the Stars cast.

She won the Mirrorball Trophy twice. Her first win was in season 14 with Donald Driver as her partner, and her second was in season 22 with Nyle DiMarco as her partner.

Murgatroyd walked down the aisle with her fellow Dancing with the Stars pro, Maksim Chmerkovskiy on July 8, 2017. The couple have a son named Shai Aleksander, who was born on January 4, 2017.
