Since meeting on the set of Dancing With the Stars in 2015, dancing professional Kym Johnson (now Herjavec) and Shark Tank businessman Robert Herjavec have been inseparable. While the popular reality competition show has had quite a few real-life romances form, few have been as serious as Robert and Kym’s, and their love for each other is simply infectious. Now the pair are not only married, but expecting twins together and fans just cant get enough of the adoring couple! Here are 10 things you didn’t know about the the pair and their relationship:

10. Getting Together

Sparks flew between gorgeous Australian pro dancer Kym Johnson and businessman Robert Herjavec almost immediately after he was cast for season 20 of Dancing With the Stars and Johnson was assigned as his partner. According to many, the pair were already becoming romantic during rehearsals before the season even started taping. Herjavec’s Shark Tank co-star Daymond John revealed, “I saw it immediately. I just saw that – this isn’t just your dancing partner, but you’re talking to “her” in a very caring manner.” Despite the almost immediate rumors that the dancing duo were becoming partners in real-life as well, they played coy about their relationship. Only a week after the season premiered in March 2015, Herjavec was asked about his relationship and hilariously joked about a different DWTS hookup instead to distract from talking about his status with Kym. “I am dating Bruno [Tonioli]. I will admit it, I never realized he was that good looking in real life…He has a Ferrari, you know!” After months of speculation, Johnson finally confirmed their relationship when she revealed Herjavec would be by her side when she returned to Dancing With the Stars Australia. “He’s lovely, he’s great. He’ll be at the first show watching and it’s really lovely to have him here,” she said at the time. Later she said of their relationship, “We were friends first. We got to know each other on a friendship level. That developed into something else. We’re both each other’s number one fans, and have respect for each other.”

9. Support System

Since confirming their relationship, the two have never been hard pressed to find loving things to say about each other and often gush about their love. One of the biggest attributes which helped them form such a strong relationship was that they supported each other in everything. “I’m learning something new about her every day,” Herjavec said in an interview. “She’s starting a business right now, and I can’t believe how committed she is and how hard working she is. I always knew she was, but it’s scary to go into a different field you haven’t gone before. She’s approaching it with the same level of enthusiasm and courage that she’s done her whole life. I find that very motivating. I find that so impressive about her.” Following their wedding, Kym said, “It feels like we’ve known each other forever. It’s been almost three years since we met. He’s just amazing. We’re best friends, and it’s just easy.”
