We were deliriously happy for Chrishell Stause, when she pretty much confirmed that she and Dancing with the Stars pro Keo Motsepe were an item.
The good news came after weeks of false speculation that she and her DWTS professional partner Gleb Savchenko were secretly dating, following the announcement that he and his wife, Elena Samodanova, were getting divorced after 14 years of marriage.
However, we were pleasantly surprised to find that those rumors couldn’t have been further from the truth, as Chrishell and Keo went public with their romance on December 3.
As is the norm these days, Chrishell and Keo let social media do the hard work for them, as they both posted about their new relationship on Instagram.
Keo initially posted about Chrishell on his Instagram Story, while Chrishell shared one of the adorable pictures from the aforementioned story to her Instagram grid. It’s a modern day fairy-tale, is it not?
We were itching to find out more information since the announcement, and we’re pleased to say that the 39-year-old Selling Sunset star has now gone into more detail about her new relationship with the 31-year-old dance pro – including spilling the beans on who asked who out first…
“Soon after we made it official, we went ahead and shared it,” Chrishell told Nick Viall on his podcast, The Viall Files, while very obviously blushing…
“I’m so blushing right now,” she added.
She also confirmed that Keo was the one who made the first move and asked her out…
“He pursued that,” she said.
We love the small little details, but this doesn’t mean that she will be sharing absolutely everything about their relationship. The self-confessed hopeless romantic revealed that she doesn’t want to put too much pressure on the relationship, so won’t be sharing every little detail with the public…
“I’ve always been such a hopeless romantic,” she admitted.
“It’s already hard enough as it is when something is promising…I don’t want to add any more pressure.”
Chrishell finished off by saying that she and Keo weren’t sure when to actually go public with their romance, referencing the fact that they both initially denied that anything was going on…
“It was so stressful at the time. I feel like you can only say so much. We both said it was definitely not true,” she said.
“I kind of knew in the back of my head that time will prove this to be not true.”
We’re glad that everything is out in the open now – and we’re excited to see where this relationship goes!
