We told you weeks ago — March 17, to be exact! — that Maks & Erin were an item, no matter what other people say
Told ya so! We broke the news March 18 that Erin Andrews is dating her Dancing with the Stars partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and now People magazine is confirming the same thing!
“After ten seasons, DWTS has seen its share of hookups (remember Derek Hough and Shannon Elizabeth?), but no pair has seemed to have become quite so smitten so swiftly,” the magazine, which hit newsstands April 7, says.
No kidding! When we chatted with the 31-year-old ESPN reporter – famous for being the victim of a Peeping Tom scandal – and the Ukrainian-born hottie, 30, at the opening of Hollywood nightclub Drai’s March 17, the couple’s chemistry was off the charts! “I think it’s funny when you are paired up with a really attractive guy. You turn into a 15-year-old and don’t know what to do,” Erin told us, giggling, “He makes me nervous!”
People describes the pair’s chemistry as “palpable,” and we couldn’t agree more. We do have to admit though that we had no idea this budding couple — who met only in Feb. — is already so serious!
“At some point, it’s like we’re dating; at others, it’s like, oh, we so broke up two days ago. Now it’s almost like we’re past dating,” Erin brags, teasing, “Now we’re working on a kid!”
First comes love, then comes marriage…you know the rest.
