Inside Chrishell Stause's Romance With DWTS Pro Keo Motsepe

Unlike most of the world, Chrishell Stause is having a pretty good 2020 judging by all the professional and personal milestones she has been hitting lately. Amid her divorce from This Is Us actor Justin Hartley, Stause appeared on Netflix's Selling Sunset, a series that gained popularity when its second and third seasons premiered during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Because of her reality TV success, the former All My Children star was cast on Dancing With the Stars. She was partnered with Gleb Savchenko, per People, but apparently fell in love with someone else on set: pro dancer Keo Motsepe. 

The couple went Instagram official on Dec. 2, 2020 with a selfie together on social media. In the surprising image, Motsepe can be seen giving Chrishell a kiss on the cheek. And it looks like everyone in the DWTS universe, including Emma Slater, Cheryl Burke, Alan Bersten, Pasha Pashkov, and Daniella Karagach, approves of this new relationship. Even Chrishell's dance partner, Savchenko, commented on the picture, writing, "Love you, guys!" 

Fans thought Chrishell Stause was dating another DWTS pro dancer

In subsequent posts to Instagram Stories, professional dancer Keo Motsepe shared even more flirty pics of him and Chrishell Stause, with one caption reading, "I will always make you smile." He also reposted some other Instagram posts from friends who supported them coming out to the world as a couple. Honestly, it's almost too cute to handle. Meanwhile, over on her Instagram Stories, Stause shared a video of the two working out together earlier in the day and then shared the same pic Motsepe took of them cuddling together, so they must have just decided it was time to share their love with the world. 

Motsepe has been on Dancing With the Stars since 2014 and this year he was partnered with Anne Heche, who was ultimately eliminated in Week 4. Stause and her partner, Gleb Savchenko, on the other hand, survived the competition until Week 8. Early on in the season, some fans speculated that Stause and Savchenko were intimately involved, given that the pro dancer had recently split from his wife who had subsequently accused him of "ongoing infidelity," per People. However, Stause and Savchenko quickly shut down the rumors, and now that it's clear she and Motsepe are dating, it all makes sense. Stause definitely had the greatest 2020 glow up anyone could ask for.
