The new couple were spotting holding hand on Thursday (September 26, 2013) while on a stroll through the West Village in New York City. Rumors regarding their relationship have been swirling for months, but apparently the couple decided it was time to go public.
The former Dancing With the Stars hunk, 33, recently insisted the dinner celebrating her 21st birthday was not a romantic date, adding that they were simply “very, very good friends”. Upton has previously been linked to baseball star Justin Verlander and Sean Combs, while Chmerkovskiy was previously engaged to fellow Dancing With the Stars pro Karina Smirnoff.
Kate is currently in Paris for the the Fashion Week shows, so hopefully the distance will make the heart grow fonder.
