Former Dancing With the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy has finally confirmed his budding relationship with 21-year-old supermodel Kate Upton.

The duo have been rumored to be dating since June, and despite being photographed holding hands last month, they’ve still stayed mum on the status of their relationship.

And, now, finally, Maksim just can’t keep quiet about his new girl we don’t think we’d be able to keep that a secret, either!

“She’s an amazing person,” the 33-year-old dancer gushed to Us Weekly. “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.”

Kate even has approval from the family. When asked about his brother’s high-profile romance, current DWTS pro Valentin Chmerkovskiy (who is partnered with Elizabeth Berkley) had only good things to say.

“I think she’s awesome,” Val told the magazine. “She’s a great girl, and we’re great friends. She’s an incredible chick and we have a great time.”

Do you think Maksim and Kate make a cute couple? Let us know in the comments below!
