Countdown to baby is officially on!

Dancing With the Stars professionals Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy brought their closest family and friends together Sunday afternoon to celebrate the upcoming arrival of their first child together. The lovebirds flew to Maks' hometown in Brooklyn for the baby shower, which proved to be a quite a special moment honoring their newborn son. 

The mama-to-be, who's in her final two weeks of pregnancy, glowed in a white, floor-length dress that accentuated her baby bump. Peta pulled her blond locks into a glam updo, complimented by a pair of gold statement earrings. As for Maks, he kept it suave in a polka dot dress shirt and black suit jacket. 

As for the party itself, which was held at the McCarren Hotel & Pool in New York City, the venue was decorated in shades of baby blue and gold, and guests were treated to a yummy spread of various desserts before stopping by a Shake and Share Media photo booth to pose for a snapshot with the happy couple.

When it came to the guest list, Maks and Peta kept it pretty exclusive, though it appears the man of the hour's brother, Val Chmerkovskiy, brought along DWTS alum and rumored beau Amber Rose as his date. She shared her own super sweet selfie alongside Maks captioned, "My brother for life."

Attendees also toasted to the couple with Liqs Cocktail shots and Vida Tequila. 

The proud papa also penned a heartfelt message on Instagram, thanking his loved ones for their continued support. "The love in the room was apparent and all the babies made us feel at ease about bringing a kid into this crazy world. If our children are half as close as we have been through the years, they will have a large family of loyal friends to fall back on!" Maks wrote.

"That's what it's all about after all.... Don't like the world you live in??? Do better! And it starts with how you raise your children. This is an incredible adventure and I can't say it enough how lucky I am to have a partner like @petamurgatroyd to experience it with! I love you for always," he added.

Ever since the engaged lovebirds took their baby news public over the summer, Peta hasn't shied away from giving her thousands of social media followers a glimpse into what it's like to lead one of the most flawless pregnancy journeys around. 

The New Zealand native had no trouble striking a balance between indulging in ice cream for breakfast all while maintaining a rigorous fitness regimen, and she also managed to sneak in a few impromptu, bikini-clad photo shoots. She couldn't help but shout out Maks along the way, often dedicating more than a few heartfelt Instagram uploads to her fiancé.

We can't wait to meet your little boy!
