Chrishell Stause and Keo Motsepe are rumbaing into a romance. 

Nearly three months since the two began competing separately on the 29th season of the ABC competition, Stause and Motsepe have coupled up behind the scenes. And, on Wednesday, Dec. 2, the Selling Sunset personality and Dancing With the Stars pro made their budding love Instagram official.

"They are dating and it's very new," a source told E! News. "It happened after they were both eliminated from DWTS and were able to hangout with other people."

As sparks flew between the two, their Dancing With the Stars family took note. "Chrishell and Keo had flirty chemistry and it was definitely something they couldn't deny. The cast is pretty close and many people noticed the pair had a lot of chemistry together while hanging out in groups," the source explained. "They are into each other and are hanging out."

On Wednesday, they went public about their budding relationship with Motsepe sharing a snap of himself nuzzling her on Instagram with a simple heart emoji as the caption. They were also photographed that same day arm-in-arm after going to the gym, with Motsepe planting a kiss on Stause's head. 



This marks the first public romance for Stause, who split from her husband of two years Justin Hartley in 2019. "Chrishell thinks Keo is a sweetheart and loves where his heart is," the source elaborated. "He's a really good guy and she wants someone who's genuine in her life."

To boot, it seems their fellow DWTS cast members have given this couple their stamp of approval. As Gleb Savchenko, who shot down speculation in November of having an affair with Stause, commented, "Love you guys!!!"
