Val Chmerkovskiy is dating Jenna Johnson, his Dancing With the Stars co-star, according to the website Who’s Dating Who. The couple has been together for about a year on and off, but they haven’t officially gone public with their relationship — yet.
Chmerkovskiy, 31, and Johnson, 23, just returned to the U.S. from a trip abroad. Fans were alerted to the new romance when both Chmerkovskiy and Johnson were posting pictures that appeared to be taken at the same locations. The couple enjoyed touring some famous cities in Italy and France and even appeared on each other’s social media accounts, but they still haven’t confirmed that they are dating.
Both Chmerkovskiy and Johnson posted several photos on their Snapchat accounts, using the “heart eyes” emoji on photos of each other and referring to having a beautiful view in the captions. However, both seem to be playing coy when it comes to fully outing their romance.
Johnson recently sat down for a chat with People Magazine in which she talked about Dancing With the Stars cast hook-ups — but she conveniently left out her relationship with Chmerkovskiy. Johnson was asked if chemistry on the show goes past the dance floor.
“Absolutely. All the time. I think it’s the environment that you’re forced into. You meet this person and then you’re spending hours together, touching each other. Obviously, there’s attractive people, most of the time, as well and chemistry happens. I mean when there’s a hot guy and like, a hot pro girl, I mean, I think something is bound to happen,” Johnson said.
Chmerkovskiy will be attending his brother, Maks’, wedding this weekend in New York. It is presumed that Johnson will be his date. However, Dancing With the Stars judge Julianne Hough is also getting married this weekend, so there’s a chance that Jenna could attend her wedding instead.
