Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Peta Murgatroyd, New Years Eve 2015


Now that's a New Year's Eve kiss! Well, an early New Year's Eve kiss.

Peta Murgatroyd, 29, posted on her Instagram page on Thursday afternoon a photo of her and fiancé and fellow Dancing With the Stars pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy, 35, kissing passionately in the shallow water on the beach in St. Maarten. The two, who got engaged earlier this month, recently jetted off to the Caribbean island for a quick vacation.

Maksim posted on his own page more photos of the pair's makeout session.

Murgatroyd posted a day earlier a video of her and her beau on a plane, headed to their tropical, sunny destination.

He can't contain himself he's so excited ?? #embarrassing #vacation #StMaarten ?? @maksimc

Maksim also shared a plane pic.


Murgatroyd is a cast member of the Dancing With the Stars Dance All Night winter tour and Maksim has been traveling with her. The next performance date is on New Year's Eve in Atlanta.

Maksim had proposed to Murgatroyd onstage in Miami at the SWAY: A Dance Trilogy event, which he and brother and Dancing With the Stars co-star Val Chmerkovskiy co-produced with fellow dancer Tony Dovolani, in front of fellow pro dancers and past celebrity contestants.

A day later, the two were spotted walking in the city, with Murgatroyd wearing a large diamond ring.
