Since it first aired in June 2005, Dancing With the Stars has become one of the most successful reality competition shows on television. Fans love the show for all the work, dedication, and emotion every star puts into learning their dances and working with their pro partners. With so many emotions and so much time together for both the pros and the stars, it isn’t surprising that there have been rumors of hook-ups and break-ups within the cast. Many stars have been linked to their pros, and while rumors fly every season, a few relationships really have come from the show. Check out these real-life couples from DWTS.
15. Cheryl Burke and Matthew Lawrence
Matthew Lawrence may have never actually competed on Dancing With the Stars, but without the show he never would have met pro dancer Cheryl Burke. The couple met back in 2006 when Lawrence’s brother Joey Lawrence competed on season three of DWTS where he came in third with pro dancer Edyta Sliwinska. Due to staying on the show for so long, Matthew’s visits to his brother on set lead him to meeting Cheryl Burke who ended up winning the season with NFL player Emmitt Smith. The pair didn’t begin dating until the season’s fall tour. After breaking up in 2008, the pair went for nearly a decade before they reunited and rekindled their romance. On May 23, 2019, the duo married at the Fairmont Grand del Mar in San Diego.
