Chrishell Stause and Dancing With The Stars pro Keo Motsepe may not have sashayed away from the latest season of DWTS with the Mirror Ball trophy, but the two competitors left the dance floor with another kind of prize – a new relationship.

The 39-year-old Selling Sunsets star and 31-year-old dancing pro confirmed their relationship on social media on December 2, with both Stause and Motsepe sharing sweet pictures of themselves together. On Wednesday, Stause posted a video in her Instagram Stories of herself and Motsepe working out together in a gym. The next image showed the reality star smiling while Motsepe nuzzled her hair. Stause tagged Motsepe in both posts, which means it’s definitely legit.

Motsepe shared the same two posts on his Instagram Stories and added another video of himself and Stause together. In the video, Motsepe can be heard saying “Hey baby” to Stause, who smiles at his phone thinking he’s taking the picture. She quickly realizes it’s a video and the pair began laughing. This is what we call the ‘honeymoon phase.’ Everything is cute and no one is annoying each other…yet.

Motsepe also uploaded a post in his Instagram stories from his publicist Shae Savin, who shared the picture of his client nuzzling Stause’ hair and wrote “So incredibly happy for these two.” You know it’s official when the publicist makes a definitive statement.

The South African born dancer even went as far as one-two-stepping out of the temporary world of Instagram Stories and added an image of the pair together to his feed. This thing is going pretty fast. Motsepe captioned the image with a simple heart emoji (classy like the waltz, we love it) and has received an outpouring of support from the couple's friends and fellow DWTS alum.

Motsepe’s fellow DWTS pros, including Cheryl Burke, Alan Bersten, Daniella Karagach and Emma Slater, as well as contestants like Nev Schulman, Alfonso Ribeiro and Jeannie Mai all left emoji-filled messages congratulating the pair.

Most notably, Stause’s Season 29 partner Gleb Savchenko posted several heart emojis and left the comment "Love you guys!!!" Savchenko and his wife Elena Samodanova announced in November that they were separating after 14 years of marriage. Rumors began to swirl that Savchenko’s partner this season, Chrishell Stause, was to blame for the split. Following Savchenko’s announcement on Instagram that he and Samodanova were splitting, Samodanova spoke to People about her husband’s infidelity. "After 14 years of marriage, and multiple affairs, I’ve decided enough is enough," Samodanova told the mag. "Gleb and I have created a family and multiple businesses together. But apparently, it just wasn’t enough to keep our marriage strong."

Stause commented on the split on her Instagram stories, writing "I am so saddened about the news of Gleb and Elena's split. It is unfortunate that this has caused rumors to swirl about my personal life. Having gone through a public split myself, I would not wish this on anyone."

Fans of Selling Sunset watched as Stause was blindsided by ex-husband and This Is Us star Justin Hartley when he announced the pair were divorcing after only two years of marriage. According to the real estate reality show, Hartley told his wife through a text in November 2019 that he wanted a divorce. The third season of the reality show followed Stause as she attempted to move forward following the pairs split. Thankfully, it looks like Stause has found a new dance partner in Motsepe.
