Kate Upton and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are dating, sources confirm. And by sources, we mean our own eyes, as the couple was spotted holding hands!
Here's the model and former DWTS legend in the West Village in New York City:
Amid rumors going around this summer that Kate Upton and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were an item, the pair were spotted in July on a secretive dinner date.
Looks like that date turned into something more. Or at least some more dates!
Upton, 21, was just named 2013 Model of the Year (yes, that's a thing) and covers this month's special 100th-year anniversary Vanity Fair issue.
Chmerkovskiy, 33, did not return to DWTS for the first time in 13 seasons.
Maks said in announcing his long-anticipated exit from the ABC show that he wants to "explore other opportunities." Presumably, he meant in a professional sense.
Now that he's exploring Kate Upton as well? Definitely has his hands full.
NOTE: We sort of hate Maksim right now, albeit in a reverential way.
NOTE: Just stick to the public hand-holding. We can't handle more.
