Maksim Chmerkovskiy Explains Why He's Done with 'Dancing with the Stars'

Maksim Chmerkovskiy will not be returning to Dancing with the Stars as a pro dancer.

The subject came up during his appearance on The Real, when one of the co-hosts, Loni Love, noted that she missed him on the show.

“I have a sibling that looks just like me, does the same stuff, and says similar things,” the 38-year-old pro dancer said, referring to his brother Val Chmerkovskiy.

“I’m a dad, I’m a husband…your chemistry changes when you have a child, things look different, they seem different,” he continued.

Maks is married to fellow dancer Peta Murgatroyd and they have a 20-month-old son named Shai.

Maks last appeared on the show last year while partnered with Vanessa Lachey. He won one time, while partnered with Meryl Davis for season 18.
