Back in February, Murgatroyd gushed over her longtime love while visiting Us Weekly’s NYC headquarters. “I’ve always said he has the most incredible generosity. He wants to take care of everybody that he knows. He has an incredible sense of humor when you get to see it,” she said. “I think that his bad-boy image is slowly kind of drifting away — and that harsh Maksim image. He is the biggest teddy bear you’ll ever meet underneath that Ukrainian look. I just love him. Everything about him. He’s just a great man.”

Even then, Murgatroyd alluded that she and her man were ready for kids — two or three, to be exact. She added: “[He’s] somebody that I’ve always seen as being a great father and a great husband.”
