LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Maksim Chmerkovskiy says he's making sure to spoil "independent" fiancée Peta Murgatroyd during her pregnancy.

The 36-year-old Dancing with the Stars pro gave an update on the 30-year-old professional dancer and first-time mom-to-be following Monday's episode of the ABC reality competition.

"Right now we're figuring out what is going on," Chmerkovskiy told reporters. "For the longest time, [Peta] was like, 'The body parts are getting bigger!' Or she would have morning sickness ... and she would say, 'What's wrong with me?'"

"Peta's a strong sort of independent character," he said. "But it's not like, 'Oh, I want this and I want that.' She doesn't voice her needs like that. She's like, 'Just surprise me with spoils.'"

Chmerkovskiy revealed his fiancée has expensive cravings, including for "five-star restaurants" and "grass-fed organic kobe beef." The couple got engaged in December and confirmed they are expecting in June.

"I'm looking forward to nurturing something and just having the baby be the center of our world," Murgatroyd told People at the time. "I'm looking forward to putting all our energy into this beautiful soul."
