Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy announced their return to “Dancing With The Stars” on Tuesday’s “Good Morning America.” Check out the video below!

The couple spoke to the “GMA” panel in a live segment on the morning show about their upcoming return to the ABC competition following the birth of their baby. The pregnancy led Murgatroyd to sit out last season. “I’m definitely a little bit nervous, but I’m very excited to get back,” she now said. “I’ve definitely missed the dance floor. I haven’t been able to defend my title, so I want to get back out there.” And her fiancé seemed to already be in the competitive spirit. “I’m not at all afraid of this one. I don’t know if everyone remembers the history, but last time we were together on the same season, I won,” Chmerkovskiy joked. “I don’t care how many balls she has.”

Murgatroyd went on to talk about how she is preparing for the reality show, as the new mom is slowly retraining her post-baby body after giving birth last month. “I just want to be healthy. It’s going to take a little bit longer to get to back up to the fitness I had before. I think it’s going to be okay. I’m going to take it slowly, and hopefully I have an awesome partner to go through all this with,” Murgatroyd noted.

Chmerkovskiy then discussed how it feels to be a first-time father. “It’s definitely a special time. I always wanted to have kids. I never thought it would be like this — you just can’t stop staring,” Chmerkovskiy said. “This is the only difficult part about coming on the show, this time, because it’ll take time away from being with [the baby.] I just want to make [Murgatroyd] coming back and winning as difficult as possible,” he quipped.
