Rihanna’s Super Bowl performance/epic pregnancy announcement was one for the history books, and we still can’t get over how epic it was. To see her was to wish to be her — and you weren’t the only one. Professional dancer Peta Murgatroyd loved RiRi’s performance as much as we did, so she decided to recreate it, baby bump and all!
“We just couldn’t help it! Shai stole the show and @petamurgatroyd lived her best life!” Murgatroyd husband (and fellow dancer!) Maksim Chrmerkovskiy captioned the video on Instagram. He and Shai, their 6-year old son, are seen in white sweats, sweats, and glasses as they perform a background dance in their living area. A pregnant Murgatroyd wears Rihanna’s iconic all-red ‘fit as she moves her body.
In the video, Dancing With the Stars As she moves her baby bump and shakes her booty, alum lip synchs. With their breakdancing moves, Shai and Chmerkovskiy have been tearing up dance floors. Chmerkovskiy slid Shai off of the stage at the end while Murgatroyd continued to sing. It is just too adorable!
According to reports, Chmerkovskiy is a big Rihanna fan. In the caption, Murgatroyd wrote, “By the way, if you REALLY know @maksimc you know that @badgalriri [has] been his secret crush since ‘Umbrella,’” she wrote, adding that they even played a favorite Rihanna song at their wedding.
“Superb show you guys, made my day ❤️,” one person commented. Another wrote, “Omg. I’m sure you laughed a lot. Fun family times ?.”
Murgatroyd, who had suffered three miscarriages, revealed her pregnancy again in January 2023. “All natural, it happened,” she told PEOPLE. “I didn’t even know I was pregnant for so long until I was really feeling sick. I danced all the way Dancing with the Stars It was very effective. I started feeling weird, started feeling a little bit sick and a little bloated and I didn’t want to test for weeks.”
She went on, “I think it was the fastest positive I’ve ever seen in my life. It came up so fast, I was shocked. It’s been completely different from my past pregnancy. It wasn’t like I jumped for joy and I shouted from the rooftops, ‘Oh my God, I’m pregnant. Yay!’ It was more like a, ‘Okay, well let’s see what happens because I’ve been through this four other times, and it hasn’t worked.’ So I was very skeptical. I didn’t even tell Maks for a while.”
It’s been an emotional journey to get pregnant, but now Murgatroyd and her family seem to simply be enjoying the ride.
These celebrities were the parents of rainbow babies who lost their baby to pregnancy.
