Finally! After weeks of speculation, Dancing with the Stars pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy has admitted that he is dating supermodel Kate Upton.
The Ukrainian-born dancer played it cool in an interview with Extra when he was asked about his relationship with Kate, 21. "I think I got lucky," he said. "She's an amazing girl."

"All I know is that so far, so good. Everybody’s happy, and we are enjoying each other’s company," the 33-year-old pro dancer smiled.
Life & Style previously reported that Kate and Maks were spotted shopping together in NYC's Gucci store. Maks lives in New Jersey, where he owns a dance studio, and Kate, who has recently covered Vogue, Vanity Fair, and Sports Illustrated, just bought an apartment in Manhattan.

"While they shopped, Maksim lovingly had his hand on Kate’s back and suggested a few items he thought she may like," an eyewitness exclusively told Life & Style. "Although he picked out some nice things, the couple left empty-handed, but happily with each other!"
Before meeting curvy blonde Kate, Maks was engaged to his fellow DWTS pro Karina Smirnoff. The couple split in 2009. He also stepped out with another Dancing pro, Peta Murgatroyd.
