We may see an elephant fly before we see baby Shai Aleksander!
“To the paps posted outside the house for the last three days: Not gonna happen! We got security ova here,” Chmerkovskiy, 36, wrote, adding the hashtags, “#ProtectionByDumboAndCo #DontFuqWithJerseyElephants #ThisAintHollywood.”
In the photo, Shai rests soundly in a crib just out of focus, while a plush Dumbo the Elephant and Timothy Q. Mouse from Disney’s 1941 animated musical stood guard.
Chmerkovskiy and fiancée Murgatroyd, 30, welcomed Shai, their first child, on Jan. 4 in New York City.

Earlier this week, the couple took to social media to reveal why they’re waiting to share pictures of the baby.
“We can’t wait to share him with you, but for the first most crucial weeks of his life we’re just keeping him for ourselves and soaking up these moments,” Murgatroyd wrote on Instagram. “Thank you for your patience and all of your love.”
It's been one week plus one day of my fatherhood and I'm the happiest person that's ever lived. I'm also feeling very protective and now understand what every parent in history have been going through for as long as humans have been giving birth. I don't let too many people come see my son and I don't want to put any of him on social media just yet. @petamurgatroyd and I just want to enjoy our little family, together with our loved ones, and take in all the precious moments which we'll never get back. So be sensitive please. Or not. Either way, hope everyone's year is off to an incredible start. Ours sure started with a bang 😊 P.S. Farts, poops and throw-ups are the best!
Similarly, Chmerkovskiy said on the social media site, “I don’t let too many people come see my son and I don’t want to put any of him on social media just yet. @petamurgatroyd and I just want to enjoy our little family, together with our loved ones, and take in all the precious moments which we’ll never get back.”
