As OK! previously reported, the mom-of-one had a miscarriage while Chmerkovskiy was in Ukraine amid the war.

"I had no strength. I couldn't open a dishwasher. I couldn't open the fridge to feed Shai, to get him some toast," the dancer told PEOPLE. "It got so bad that my breath was starting to be affected. It was really dramatic."

She also had two other miscarriages: one in 2017 and another in 2020.

"I was completely embarrassed, ultimately ashamed. I didn't even know how to utter the words and have that sentence come out of my mouth: I had a miscarriage," Murgatroyd confessed. "I'm somebody who prides herself on health wellness. I exercise every single day. But as I came to realize, that doesn't really go hand-in-hand with the reproductive system. With the trauma, I took a very long time to get over it. It was months and months of crying most nights in bed by myself, crying in the shower, it was a lot of denial. What had I done wrong?"
