Then, Murgatroyd took to her new blog to explain their decision.

“When you’re a celebrity, privacy is a luxury that eventually runs out,” the new mom, 30, wrote in a post. “As I’ve mentioned before, parenthood has brought out the ‘mama bear’ instinct in Maks and I. From minute one, we knew it was our job to protect this little person, and we’ve taken that job seriously every moment since.”

She went on to say that they’re ready to share Shai with the world after cherishing a few weeks along with him.

“So this past month and a half, we’ve tried to keep Shai for ourselves, like our little secret that only we get to enjoy — but babies aren’t secrets, and keeping him hidden away forever isn’t realistic or healthy,” she continues. “Now, after taking as much time as we could to enjoy these precious first moments of his life, we’re finally ready to share Shai with the world.”
