Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are going to be parents of three.

On Monday, the "Dancing with the Stars" pros shared a joint Instagram post featuring a video from the moment Murgatroyd revealed to Chmerkovskiy that she was pregnant again.

"He is not gonna know what hit him!" Murgatroyd says as she FaceTimes her husband.

She then tells Chmerkovskiy that she was feeling really nauseous and sick and that she did a test. Murgatroyd then hints at needing a bigger house with another bedroom before holding two bottles in her hands and revealing the positive pregnancy test.

"This is what I'm trying to tell you," Murgatroyd says.

"Babe! Stop, no way! What? Babe! You're pregnant?!" Chmerkovskiy replies.

"Yes, I'm pregnant," Murgatroyd tells Chmerkovskiy. "Cancel everything because we gotta look for a house."
