Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy may not be saying much about their romance, but sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. The two were in Las Vegas over the weekend celebrating Peta’s “Dancing With the Stars” win, and People magazine shares a shot of the two kissing. Though the pair has recently tried to play off their togetherness as just a friendship, it seems it is definitely a lot more than that.
According to People’s source, “She’s had a crush on him for a long time. They are really great together. And he is very happy.” They have spent time together on both the East and West Coasts over the past month or two, and it seems things are going well. Another source told People, “It’s early but I think this will last. They’re a good match, a good couple.” They may be playing coy when asked about a romance by reporters, but their body language certainly indicates they are quite happy together, and it looks like things are definitely steamy.
Of course, both have been in relationships with fellow “Dancing With the Stars” pros before. Maksim Chmerkovskiy was, as fans remember, engaged to Karina Smirnoff a couple of years ago. Peta Murgatroyd dated fellow DWTS pro Damian Whitewood for a couple of years as well. Will the Maks and Peta combo be a long-lasting love match? It’s too soon to know for sure, but a lot of fans think they make a great couple.
