One of our favorite parts of Dancing With the Stars is watching the stars and pros create lifelong connections. So, of course, we always like to see past pairs reunite, as Karina Smirnoff and her Season 13 partner J.R. Martinez recently did.

J.R., the war-hero-turned-actor, remains one of our favorite DWTS champs of all time. He was the total package: A true dancing amature whose skills blossemed on the show; an upbeat, loveable personality; and a real life hero with a compelling backstory and a positive outlook on life. It's no surprise that he was Karina's first (and, to this point, only) winner.

Karina and J.R., along with Season 16's D.L. Hughley recently met up for what looks like a fun meetup. Karina posted this photo of the DWTS reunion on Instagram, writing, "So good seeing @iamjrmartinez &@RealDLHughley. Thanks 4 fun time!"
