After rumors surfaced that Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton is dating “Dancing with the Stars” pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy, the dancer himself decided to confirm the news to “Extra.”
When asked about their relationship he responded, “Things are going great…I think I got lucky…she’s an amazing girl. Everyone is happy, we are enjoying each other’s company.”
Maks' brother Val was debuting his new fashion line at Philippe in Beverly Hills, but part of the spotlight was aimed at Maks' love life.
Although Kate originally told the outlet she and Maks are “just friends,” their relationship must have heated up considerably since then.
He was chattier when it came to talking about how close they’ve become. Kate purchased an apartment to be closer to her boyfriend. “I live in New Jersey,” Maks said, when asked about her new digs, “she got an apartment in Manhattan.”
