  • by

Chrishell Stause has a new man in her life! The former Dancing with the Stars contestant and star of Netflix’s Selling Sunset is dating professional dancer Keo Motsepe. Get details on their new romance below, including some of their super-sweet social media posts.

All About Chrishell and Keo

Chrishell Stause’s most notable role has been on the hit Netflix reality series Selling Sunset, which finished its third season last year. Prior to that, she had roles on the soap operas All My Children and Days of Our Lives. She began competing on Dancing with the Stars this fall, and was paired with professional Gleb Savchenko. They finished in 8th place.

Keo Motsepe is known for his amazing dance skills, which earned him a “pro” title on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. He began competing in 2014 for the network and has been paired with stars like Fuller House‘s Jodie Sweetin. During this cycle, he was partnered with Chicago PD‘s Anne Heche. They were eliminated during week 4 of season 29.

Since the cast of Dancing with the Stars is close both on and offscreen, it makes sense that Chrishell and Keo would run in the same circle. Their time outside DWTS after elimination was what led to their hangouts, according to E! News.

Course, it’s not the first relationship of Chrishell’s to be publicized. She was engaged to Glee‘s Matthew Morrison from 2006-2007, and was most recently rumored to be dating her DWTS partner Gleb! While that obviously is untrue, one romance that was high profile for Chrishell? Her marriage to This is Us‘ Justin Hartley.

The pair were married for 2 years before a pretty public divorce. Social media played its part, some fans leaving their support for her in the comments. Chrishell discussed on season 3 of Selling Sunset how Justin texted her the news of their separation.

As for Keo, his love life remained a mystery – until now, that is! Prior to Chrishell, it’s unknown if he found romance on the dance floor or off. Something very noteworthy about Keo though? He’s a prince! He’s originally from South Africa, and is a prince from his dad’s side of the family.

Any other details?

The couple sent fans into a frenzy overnight from Wednesday, December 2 into Thursday, December 3 after posting to their Instagram Stories. Their flirty photos ignited the rumor mill, but it was the official photos they posted to their profiles that sealed the deal.

Chrishell gave hers a cheeky caption: “The internet has absolutely zero chill. So I guess you saw this already, but I’m just gonna leave this here” along with a couple smiley faced emojis. Keo’s Instagram post was short and sweet, simply putting a heart emoji next to a photo of he and Chrishell cozying up to one another.

Their DWTS costars gave their stamps of approval, as well as Chrishell’s Selling Sunset castmates! Heather Rae Young left a bunch of hearts and clapping emojis in celebration of her costar’s new beau, while Emma Slater and Cheryl Burke left smiley faces and heart eyed emojis. Even Chrishell’s dance partner Gleb commented with: “Love you guys!” How awesome is that? It’s great that they have so much support!
