Though this couple has been pretty private about their new bundle of joy, they are finally giving the world a glimpse of their firstborn -- and, spoiler alert, he's gorgeous. Dancing with the Stars pros Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy showed off son Shai, whose name means "gift" in Hebrew.

The couple appeared on Good Morning America and gave fans exactly what they were hoping for -- a full look at their beautiful baby boy. 

Take a listen as these proud parents gush about sharing their "gift" with the world.

Though you'd expect that this little guy would be tappin' his toes in his crib like a mini Fred Astaire, that doesn't seem to be what his mom and dad have planned for him.

When asked about how long it will be before Shai starts dancing, Maks, who did tease us with a back-of-the-head shot of Shai the other day, was quick to say, "I hope never."

Sorry, Shai, looks like you won't be getting your own Mirrorball trophy anytime soon.  

The former champ, who said his fianceé is "amazing" at motherhood, fessed up that while he changed Shai's very first diaper, he hasn't changed one since! Wow, someone's got a good deal right there!

But it all seems to be working. At the moment the new parents have more on their minds than the tango or the fox-trot -- the happy couple is planning their wedding. Like any new mom, Peta was feeling a bit overwhelmed when asked about the pair's wedding plans. But, even with a newborn, much like their dance routines, the show must go on! 

Though she asked Maks about possibly postponing it, the handsome new dad said he boldly stated, "I want to marry you!" 

This isn't the first time Peta has won fans' hearts all over again with her honest portrayal of motherhood. Shortly after giving birth, she shared a selfie in which she said she still looked five months pregnant. Next, the gorgeous mom posted a pic of the joys of breastfeeding -- leaky breasts. LOL.

And now we can't wait for her to win us over with more shots like this, posted just after Shai's GMA debut.

But, back to the big day! As far as what role baby can play in their wedding, Peta said, "We're wondering how to get him down the aisle." Based on the elaborate costume designers at their disposal, we're sure this family will be dressed to the nines.

We can't wait to see them all on their special day.
