Dancing With the Stars pro Derek Hough has four blonde sisters, so it's no surprise that he tends to date brunettes. Derek, 29, was just seen smiling and holding hands with a beautiful girl with dark hair over Labor Day weekend. New girlfriend or just a very pretty friend?


The Daily Mail has photos of Derek with the unnamed woman at the Made In America Festival on Saturday, August 30 in Los Angeles. She looks great. He looks great. They are all smiles. You can see one such photo above. Gorgeous pair!

New girlfriend or not, Derek does tend to date stunning brunettes. He dated his DWTS Season 6 partner Shannon Elizabeth, and also dated Cheryl Cole and Nina Dobrev. He was recently linked to Nikki Reed, who is now dating Ian Somerhalder. That is not bad company to keep.

Speaking of good company, Derek has officially been revealed as one of the competing pros on this fall’s DWTS Season 19, and his celeb partner will be revealed this Thursday, September 4 on Good Morning America. There are already rumors about who he got, and — if true — he should be pretty happy with his other new lady friend too, although not for the same reasons. (His rumored celeb is also a brunette … although too young for any showmance rumors. She is popular, though, among the online crowd.)

If we start seeing this mystery brunette in the audience, cheering for Derek and his celeb partner, then maybe we can consider her his new g-friend. For now, we’ll just consider her lucky to get to hang out with him — and vice versa!

DWTS Season 19 premieres Monday, September 15 from 8 to 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
