Dancing With the Stars pro Kym Johnson has been supercalifragilisticly close to fellow pro Tristan MacManus for a long time now. They never “confirmed” they were a couple, but they were spotted holding hands out at dinner in L.A and looked cozy-in-the-dating-sense at other events. But maybe that was never really a thing?

Back in April, we read that Tristan was dating a different Australian beauty named Tahyna Tozzi. But then we didn’t hear more about it — and when we saw Tristan and Kym dancing together for the DWTS online game, and again at the Red Cross event, we thought Tris and Kym must still be on … right?

But we just checked out a story Kym Johnson’s fan site shared last week — it’s a late May interview Kym had with Australia’s The Telegraph. In the revealing story, Kym opened up about her current single status and her past engagement to cricketer Shane Watson.

"I've never been opposed to dating someone famous,” Kym said. “But I've grown up a lot and I want different things now. I'm looking for a good person I connect with. I can't imagine myself without kids. I was in a relationship for three years [with Watson] and thought I was going to marry him and have kids — that takes a while to get over. I really want to be a mum. Hopefully I can find the right man."

Kym added that it's a challenge to let someone get close but she's working on that and she is dating. "But I'm not going to look for love anymore, I'm just going to have fun with my friends. I think it happens when you're living life that way. I have big plans for the future. I want to launch my own tanning line, devise a cardio workout I can license to gyms and open a dance school. I'd also love to create a ballroom show for Las Vegas. That's where I am now — the only thing missing is the man."

So it sounds like Kym and her DWTS buddy Cheryl Burke are in the same single position. Maybe they can do The Bachelorette as a tag-team?
