It’s on. The hand-holding. The kissing. The touching. The sweet-talking. Despite a previous denial that they were just good friends, Dancing With the Stars pros Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd have officially stepped out as a couple.

"He's amazing,” Peta gushed about Maks in what Extra deemed a “PDA-packed interview” at the opening of Dance With Me studio in Stamford, CT. “It's always good to have somebody by your side."

Maks’ best friend Tony Dovolani is a correspondent for Extra but he’s also a partner in the Dance With Me world so he wasn’t the one interviewing them about their relationship. But since Extra did get an interview — and Mario Lopez’s voice-over said Maks finally confirmed the relationship — we have to assume Maks was asked if he and Peta were dating before saying this in the video: "I think that aspect's very obvious. How it will play out, we'll see." That answer could mean anything without a romantic dating context, but if Extra says this is confirmation, then congrats to the insanely gorgeous couple! Maybe next time they share a kissing photo it be on the lips instead of on the cheek.

Peta and Maks also co-hosted a party in Vegas over the weekend to celebrate her DWTS Season 14 win with Donald Driver. It’s good to be Peta! (But maybe not so good to be her ex, DWTS Season 10 pro Damian Whitewood?)
