“Dancing with the Stars” hunk Maksim Chmerkovskiy has finally confirmed he’s dating curvy model Kate Upton.
Maksim was singing her praises but admits they both never saw a romantic relationship coming.
Chmerkovskiy told US Weekly of Kate, “She’s an amazing person. We have an incredible time together, and, you know, I definitely didn’t see that coming and I think neither did she. We enjoy each other’s company very much and like I said, she’s a great girl that I never thought anything romantic like this could have happened.”
He was also asked in another interview about his relationship with Kate, admitting, “What can I say? Things are going great…I think I got lucky and she’s an amazing girl. So far so good. Everybody’s happy and we are enjoying each other’s company.”
Chmerkovskiy, 33, and Upton, 21, were first rumored to be dating back in June. They first said they were just friends but were soon spotted holding hands.
Maksim shot down reports they were living together, saying, “I live in New Jersey, she got an apartment in Manhattan”.
Maksim’s brother Val obviously approves of Kate Upton. Val said, “I think she’s awesome,” Chmerkovskiy ‘s brother Val added. “She’s a great girl, and we’re great friends. She’s an incredible chick and we have a great time.”
Chmerkovskiy was previously engaged to fellow Dancing with the Starspro Karina Smirnoff.
