Stause and Motsepe are, for now, letting pictures and emoticons tell the story. Motsepe posted in his Instagram account a photo of the couple appearing intimate. Motsepe and Stause posted, respectively and simply: “❤️” and “💕.”
Romances born out of the show aren’t uncommon. Dance pro, Artem Chigvintsev, who along with The Bachelorette’s Kaitlyn Bristowe, won DWTS Season 29, is engaged to Nikki Bella, his star partner from Season 25, with whom he shares a son, Matteo.
Dance pro, Kym Johnson, was paired with Shark Tank’s Robert Herjavec in Season 20. They wed in 2016. Dance pros find love with each other, too. Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd tied the knot in 2017. Val Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson wed in 2019.
Season 29 participants, both pros and stars, have weighed in on Motsepe’s post. “❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Love you guys!!!” posted Gleb Savchenko, Stause’s pro partner. Dance pro, Emma Slater, wed to dance pro, Sasha Farber, wrote: “😆😆😆.”
Weighing in with various emoticons — all expressing joy and happiness — were dance pros Alan Bersten, Cheryl Burke, Louis Van Amstel, and Daniella Karagach. Stars past and present including Bristowe and Alfonso Ribeiro (AFV) also chimed in with positive posts. Nev Schulman (Catfish), who along with Johnson, came in second this past season wrote: “THIS. IS. SO. CUTE.”
