12. How They Met

In no surprise to Dancing With the Stars fans, Chmerkovskiy and Johnson were introduced when Johnson joined Dancing With the Stars as a troupe member in 2014 after finding fame on So You Think You Can Dance. A romance wasn’t sparked right away, but in the year leading up to Jenna’s promotion to a full-time pro in 2016 for season 23, it seems the two became quite close. The couple kept their romance private for quite some time before they were spotted on a date in February 2016.

11. The Break

Just as Dancing With the Stars fans were getting into a frenzy over the new relationship, it came to an end. While the two never commented on the status of their relationship, it was clear they had split when Val began dating Amber Rose who had competed with his brother, Maksim, on season 23 of Dancing With the Stars in the fall of 2016. Just as things seemed to be getting pretty serious between Val and Amber, the pair abruptly split in February of 2017, and it didn’t take long before rumors swirled that Johnson and Chmerkovskiy had reconciled. In the summer of 2017, Chmerkovskiy confirmed the relationship was back on and more serious than ever after he served as the best man in his brother’s wedding to fellow dancer Peta Murgatroyd, and he said he was “in love.” “Is that what it’s called, the wedding bug? Or have I gained a different perspective on, you know, what love is and what happiness is?” he shared. “You know, I’m in a great place and I’m in love, and I’m very grateful for that.”
