Sharna Burgess welcomed her first son, Zane Walker, on June 28, 2022, with Brian Austin Green.

Following the birth of her first child, Burgess shared that her own mother lent a helping hand.

“I have depended on my mum a lot these last few months and especially weeks with us moving house,” she wrote in a post to Instagram in December. “Watching her be a Grandma to my son has been so beautiful.

“The memories and moments and sometimes unsolicited advice 😉 have all been exactly what I needed at the time. Mums just know things and I totally get that now,” Burgess added.

The adorable set of photos showcased “how it started” vs. “how it’s going” with Zane’s growth on full display as he is seen lifting his head in the second photo to look at the camera.

“This is, without a doubt, the best thing that has ever happened to us!” the couple said of their firstborn in a statement at the time.

Later that year, the two secretly tied the knot during a small city hall ceremony in New York City on July 8, 2017, before celebrating with friends and family at a larger ceremony on Long Island, New York.

Recently, the couple has been open about their journey to expand their family and the challenges they’ve faced along the way. Murgatroyd shared that she suffered three miscarriages and in August, revealed that the embryo transfer from the first round of in vitro fertilization with Chmerkovskiy was not successful.

“We’ve wanted a family ever since we’ve gotten married and we’ve been married for eight and a half years, so we are more than ready to have a baby,” Karagach told PEOPLE. “We wanted to start planning this year and it just so happened that the timing was absolutely perfect. I actually found out I was pregnant on [DWTS season 31’s] premiere day.”

Former DWTS pro Lindsay Arnold and her husband, Samuel Lightner Cusick, welcomed daughter Sage Jill on Nov. 2, 2020.

In October 2022, she shared in a statement exclusive to PEOPLE that their family of three was expanding.

“Sam and I are thrilled to announce we’re pregnant with baby No. 2!” she said.

The news came a month after Arnold revealed she’d be stepping away from DWTS to focus on her family.

“I wanted to let you all know that I have decided not to be a part of Dancing with the Stars this season,” she wrote alongside a photo of her, her husband and little Sage.

Arnold continued, “This has been one of the hardest decisions to make but ultimately I have chosen what I feel is best for myself and my family.”

The DWTS and So You Think You Can Dance alumna, married to Stephen “tWitch” Boss, is mom to Zaia, 3, Maddox, 6, and Weslie, 14.

In November 2022, the couple opened up about their kids and the possibility of expanding their family while speaking with Jennifer Hudson on her eponymous daytime show.

When talking about their youngest daughter, Hudson asked if they “miss having a newborn in the house.”

“I sure do,” Holker said firmly as both her husband and the audience reacted with surprise. “I think we would love to start trying for another one.”

Asked how he felt, Boss replied, “We do. I love the little babies, I love them. It’s a constant conversation.”

Three years after getting married, Val Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson announced that they were expecting their first child.

“Everybody tells you, ‘When you just relax and you don’t put the stress on yourself, it happens for you.’ That’s exactly what happened,” Johnson told PEOPLE exclusively in July 2022. “I think it was exactly when it was meant to be. Our little baby was created with a lot of love. It all seems so magical and meant to be.”

Days after announcing the big news, Johnson opened up about her journey to pregnancy and shared that she went through two years of infertility before conceiving.

“It may not happen on your timeline and the journey may rip your heart open at times, but don’t give up on yourself and your precious baby! It will happen ✨,” Johnson wrote in part on Instagram along with a video.

“I’m nervous, excited, over-the-moon happy and overwhelmed,” Smirnoff continued. “Everyone has been so great, gracious and has given me so much information. I’m just trying to keep up!”

Added the then-mother-to-be, “But I’m very grateful for the gift I’ve been given. I can’t wait to be a mom.”

Gleb Savchenko, who came in fourth place with his partner Shangela on the most recent season of the celebrity dance competition, is the father to two daughters.

He shares daughters Olivia, 12, and Zlata, 5, with ex-wife Elena Samodanova.

Amid their divorce proceedings, finalized in October 2021, Savchenko spoke about co-parenting during an episode of the Whine Down with Jana Kramer podcast.

“In my situation, I love Elena. I have huge respect [for] her — of course, she’s the mother of my kids,” Savchenko told host Jana Kramer. “So it’s hard at times because, you know, no one’s perfect, but you have to communicate.”

He added that during the early days of their split, co-parenting with Samodanova was “really hard to do because you can’t really stand each other … but because [we] have kids, we just decided that we’re not going to speak about anything negative in front of the kids.”

“We can have an appointment with a lawyer and a mediator, and have a huge massive fight in the morning, but when we’re together with [the] kids … we’re cool. We laugh,” he explained. “I want to show my girls how dad should treat their mom, which is really important to me. They should know how they should be treated in the future. Everything else, it is what it is.”

In the months that followed, the parents of two embarked on an ongoing custody battle.
