Cheryl Burke is definitely on the TLC tip.
A little more than two months after her ex Matthew Lawrence and singer Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas made their relationship Instagram official, the Dancing With the Stars alum is sharing her thoughts on his new chapter, noting that she really does "wish him well."
In fact, when it comes to Matthew wanting to have kids with the TLC alum, Cheryl noted that she isn't surprised at all.

"He comes from a huge family and there were definitely conversations but I always had said, ‘As long as I had to shove my body in a dance costume, me thinking about being pregnant probably isn't something I can talk about at the moment,'" she said during the March 9 episode of The Most Dramatic Podcast Ever With Chris Harrison. "But yes, there were discussions about freezing my eggs."

Cheryl—whose divorce from Matthew was finalized in September 2022—added, "I really truly hope he can actually have a kid with Chili. I think that's amazing. I think he's wanted that."

And though the ballroom pro is admittedly a huge TLC fan, fans may not see her in the front row at a performance anytime soon.

"I'm not going to a concert," she joked. "But I will still sing along to the song ‘No Scrubs.'"

As far as the Boy Meets World actor goes, he recently shared insight on his romance with the What Chilli Wants alum, explaining that their friendship blossomed into something more special over time.

"My life is in a complete bloom right now," he told Entertainment Tonight on March 3. "I get to spend time with an amazing woman like Chilli. I've never gotten to be able to experience that kind of relationship before, so it's quite special. She's a really, really special human being."
