Robert Herjavec met Kym Johnson when he was partnered with her for his Dancing with the Stars debut. Now that the show is over, the couple is still going strong. In fact, there is talk of marriage in the reality stars’ futures. “This is true love and Robert wants to make it official,” an insider told HollywoodLife. “He is the most in love he has ever been and can’t wait to marry Kym. It would be a shock if he didn’t propose to her this year.”
At this point the pair is not hiding their relationship, and are still filling their social media pages with pictures of one another. In fact, Johnson’s DWTS colleague Cheryl Burke told People, “Kym has been such a great friend of mine. I haven’t talked to her in a while, but they seem very in love. All these Instagram pictures! I’m so jealous of her life right now. They are jet-setting the world.”
As for Johnson, she has no problem gushing about her Shark. She recently told Us Weekly:
He’s such a great guy…Absolutely, we’re still seeing each other. We love spending time together.
At first, there was speculation that the couple just wanted the publicity of a TV relationship. However, Herjavec who went through a legal separation from his wife of 25 years right before the show, told People, “I don’t do anything for publicity. From the moment I met her, I love hanging out with her. We are having a great time.”
Herjavec has three children with his ex, Diane Plese. In an interview with People magazine, Herjavec spoke very candidly about how difficult that experience was for him. Things got so bad that he even contemplated committing suicide because of his situation. “I just wanted to end it,” he said. “It’s been a terribly difficult year,” he added “We were great parents and a great team, but over time we drifted apart.”
