UPDATE: Val Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson may look like they're getting cozy based on these pics, however, a source tells E! News that the two are "not dating."
"The pros are in rehearsal now—he's a pro, she's in the troupe. In their free time, people sometimes hang out. They had a friendly lunch. That's all," our insider added. "He's single. He doesn't have a girlfriend...There's no special woman in Val's life other than his mom."
Do we have a new Dancing With the Stars love match on our hands?
It's not unusual that dancers from the hit ABC show have found themselves swaying into a romantic relationship. After all, everyone is ridiculously good-looking, and you've seen the intense chemistry that hits that ballroom.
But it seems like Val and troupe member Jenna are the latest twosome to take that flame further than the dance floor. E! News has obtained exclusive photos of the pair displaying some sweet PDA while grabbing some lunch after wrapping a day of rehearsals in West Hollywood.
"They ordered and were very flirtatious. Val looked very happy. He had an almost calm look of happiness and contentment. He was very at ease and you could tell they were comfortable together," an insider tells us.
(Um, yeah, have you seen this dance they did together?!)
The eyewitness adds that the pair were laughing and looking at their phones while dining, and after Val picked up the check, the twosome "started walking together and Val put his arm around her and pulled her close to him. At that point Jenna took the hand he had wrapped around her and held it as they walked."
Source continues, "They had a very warm, affectionate manner with each other that seemed easy and worry-free. They walked a little bit towards their cars and when they arrived at her car, he leaned in and kissed her before they each took off in their own cars.
"Val had taken her under his wing during the show and was a sort of mentor to her. It seems natural that their relationship blossomed."
Well, we're a fan of this pairing, and it looks like we're not alone.
