‘Dancing With the Stars’ couple Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are back together and hotter than ever! More than a year after their 10-month relationship ended the two dancers are rekindling their romance.
Last night’s episode of Dancing With the Stars included killer dances and an adorable proposal, but off-screen another love is the talk of the town. Peta Murgatroyd, 28, and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, 35, broke up in 2013, but HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal the pair are back together — and have been for some time!
Maksim Chmerkovskiy & Peta Murgatroyd Rekindle Romance: ‘DWTS’ Couple On Date
The pair was spotted in front of Craig’s restaurant in West Hollywood on May 11, holding hands on a romantic date! Peta and Maksim competed against each other for two seasons as pro dancers on DWTS before starting their initial romance during the 15th season of the show in 2012. The couple has yet to formally say anything about their relationship but a friend of the couple tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY their romance is alive and well!
“Its been going on for while, He doesn’t want it to go public but obviously he was caught,” the source says.
After dating for 10 months the couple ended up going their separate ways in 2013. “They broke because they weren’t getting along.” continues the source. “But I honestly don’t think Maks wanted something like she wanted with him. And I don’t know if he likes her as much. Notice how she social medias him and he barely does.”
On May 4, Peta posted a photo of the pair snuggling up while watching this season of DWTS and captioned it: “Ice packs and #dwts #couchpotatoes.” The pair looked cozy on the couch together as they watched their friends compete for the Mirror Ball Trophy (Peta and her partner, Michael Sam, were eliminated last month).

The duo might be keeping it quiet with the press, but Maks made it clear he only had eyes for Peta when he shared a photo of him and the gorgeous dancer all over each other in March. “About last night… @petamurgatroyd” the former pro captioned his very sexy photo, where he is staring at the New Zealand dancer.

While Peta and Maksim’s relationship is heating up off-screen, DWTS season 20 contestant Noah Galloway, 33, spiced things up onscreen. After finishing his Viennese Waltz during his May 11 performance, Noah got down on one knee and asked his long-time girlfriend, Jamie Boyd, to marry him on live TV!
“You’re amazing,” Jamie said of Noah after he finished his dance. “You’re a beautiful dancer and you have a beautiful heart.” Noah then gushed, “The song, the ‘Time of My Life,’ you’ve given it to me,” before popping the question.
Fingers crossed that Peta and Maksim’s rekindled relationship goes well and eventually ends up like their DWTS friend Noah and his fiancee Jamie.
We really hope these two make it through their romance round two! HollywoodLifers do you think Peta and Maks make a great couple?
