It sounds like this talented duo is quickly dancing their way to a baby carriage! Dancing with the Stars pros, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and his fiancé, Peta Murgatroyd, are already taking baby plans just weeks after confirming their engagement. And it sounds like the stunning bride-to-be already has her future family all mapped out!

When the ultra-talented Dancing with the Stars duo isn't busy melting the hearts of millions with an adorable proposal, or showing off their impeccable dance moves, it turns out this dynamic duo is busy thinking about babies! The bride-to-be recently spilled the baby details to People in their latest issue. "I would just like to bask in this engagement bliss for a little bit," said the dance pro, "Maybe for a year. Maybe a little less." Murgatroyd then quickly followed up with a, "But I would like to start [having] kids pretty soon. A little boy, and then a little girl."

Chmerkovskiy, who first met his gorgeous fiancé during the Broadway production of Burn the Floor in 2009, quickly disagreed with his better half's order of offspring. "A little girl first, then a little boy," Chmerkovskiy told People, "I think an older girl would be more responsible. I was an exceptional older brother, but I think that was just a one-in-a-billion thing," the dance pro answered jokingly. Chmerkovskiy's bride-to-be adorably responded with "You are one in a billion," adding "Maks always wants to take care of everybody, which, to me, was the biggest sign that he'll be an amazing father and take care of me the rest of my life."

In addition to planning their future family, this dance pro has been fully focused on wedding plans, as she recently dished to Entertainment Tonight. Murgatroyd's self-proclaimed "Big!" Los Angeles nuptials have been handled mostly by the dance pro herself! "I'm happy with that. I want to do it all...He can just sit there and turn up for the big day," she laughed when discussing her anticipated wedding day.

If their proposal is any indication, this wedding will be quite the stunner. Chmerkovskiy got down on one knee in front of an entire cheering audience just weeks ago, professing his love for his girlfriend in front of his fellow dancers, and lucky onlookers saying, "I'm in love with you, and I want to be in love with you for the rest of my life." The dancer then continued by asking, "And if you'll have me...I want you to be a part of mine. Will you marry me?" Murgatroyd's "yes" definitely earned these two a perfect 10 in our book.
