It’s on! Maks Chmerkovskiy and Kate Upton are officially dating!
Maks told “Extra,” “Things are going great… I think I got lucky… she's an amazing girl.” He added, “Everyone is happy, we are enjoying each other’s company.”
As for reports that Kate got an apartment to be closer to Maks, he clarified, “I live in New Jersey, she got an apartment in Manhattan.”
The couple fueled dating rumors when they were spotted holding hands in NYC last month, after previously denying the romance.
Upton once told “Extra” the two were “just friends,” while Chmerkovskiy said they “go way back.”
Buzz over the twosome started in June, and this is the first time either has spoken publicly about the relationship.
