Chrishell Stause has opened up about her budding romance with her Dancing with the Stars co-star Keo Motsepe.
Stause appeared on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s Instagram Live and shared the story of how things started between her and Motsepe. “I’m grateful. I had the best experience [on DWTS] but this to me is the coolest thing,” she told Kaitlyn and her boyfriend Jason Tartick.
“I knew from my dance work I wasn’t going to win a Mirrorball from the beginning. To have this come from it, I’m just very smitten.”
Bristowe and Stause competed on the latest season of Dancing with the Stars and became close friends. The former Bachelorette shared that Chrishell and Keo are “two of the nicest people we have ever met…very good hearts and I have been rooting for you two from the very start.”
Jason added that it was “so obvious” something was going on between the two at Motsepe’s birthday party in November. “That was the night that we were like, ‘We don’t know how long we can hide this for,'” Chrishell admitted.
“I had a little bit of a hangup at first because I was worried because he’s younger,” the 39-year-old actress shared. “I was in my head and I was thinking [throws hands up]. But a lot of guys my age and older still don’t want what I am looking for…”
Keo also jumped into the conversation with Kaitlyn and Jason by saying, “I’m blushing, by the way.”
“The most important thing for me is her,” he added. “It’s the love that we received and everything that’s more of a bonus, and as long as she’s happy [we’re good].”
