‘Dancing with the Stars’: Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Peta Murgatroyd are official

Mrs. Carter: Ladies, grab your hankies.  All dreams of hooking up with Maks are officially over.

Just over a month after the rumors first started to spread of a romance between Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd the couple have taken it to the next level – public appearances.

Speaking in a new interview with Celebuzz, “Danging With The Stars” pro dancers Chmerkovskiy and Murgatroyd confirmed their relationship by walking down the red carpet together at the Film Breakthrough Awards in Los Angeles. Peta, who won this past season alongside Green Bay Packers star Donald Driver, said that there is “nothing [she doesn’t] like” about Maks. Meanwhile, the often outspoken pro complemented Peta on both her good looks and her gene pool. (Really!)

For Maks, this isn’t the first time that he has been engaged in a serious relationship with a fellow “Dancing with the Stars” pro. He was once engaged to Karina Smirnoff, but it did not work out and they both eventually moved on. He has also been the target of many rumors surrounding a number of his former celebrity partners, but he has never confirmed or denied being with any of them — even sports reporter Erin Andrews was questioned about her “relationship” pretty much non-stop even for months even after she was eliminated.

While the full cast for the upcoming “All-Stars” season of the ABC show will not be unveiled until August, we can probably expect at least one of these two to appear. Peta is a toss-up since she may not be as familiar with some of the show’s past contestants, and producers may be trying to pair up the stars with the pros that they once performed with in the past.

Are you happy that these two finally confirmed their relationship, and who would you like to see Maks and Peta perform with on this coming season? Be sure to stay tuned for plenty more of the latest news.
