Throughout Dancing With the Stars’ 16-year history, pros have struck up romances with their partners, other contestants and fellow pros — and while some showmances didn’t stick, others are now happily married with kids.
Gleb Savchenko and Keo Motsepe made headlines in fall of 2020 after they were both linked to season 29 contestant Chrishell Stause. Savchenko was accused of being more than friends with his partner in November 2020, after his wife of 13 years, Elena Samodanova, announced their separation.
Savchenko and the Selling Sunset star denied the allegations, and Stause went Instagram official with Motsepe one month later. Us Weekly confirmed in February 2021 that the pair had split after a whirlwind romance.
Former wrestler Nikki Bella and her season 25 partner, Artem Chigvintsev, got together after they danced together on the ABC series in 2017. Us broke the news in January 2019 that the duo had been dating “for a while” after Bella’s split from John Cena in April 2018.
The pair got engaged in November 2019, and welcomed their first child, son Matteo, in July 2020. Two years later, the E! personality announced that she and Chigvintsev tied the knot in Paris.
