Selling Sunset star Chrishell Stause is officially off the market. The 37-year-old shared an adorable photo to her Instagram Stories on Wednesday night cuddled up with a very familiar face, Keo Motsepe!
The 31-year-old pro dancer appeared alongside Stause during season 29 of Dancing With the Stars. While he was paired off with actress Anne Heche, Stause was partnered with pro dancer Gleb Savchenko.
Motsepe, who hails from South Africa, is known for being the first black pro dancer on Dancing with the Stars. He been a member of the show’s pro dancer cast since 2014 and has competed in past years with Full House’s Jodie Sweetin, actress and comedienne Charo, Harry Potter’s Evanna Lynch, and more. His specialities include ballroom and Latin dancing. Over the years, he’s also developed a close friendship with Savchenko, which may have contributed to frequent hangouts with Stause.

In addition to Stause’s adorable snap of the two, Motsepe also confirmed their relationship on social media. He posted the couple’s first selfie on his Instagram (@keo_motsepe) and shared a super sweet video to his story of them nuzzling up to one another. He captioned the clip “I will always make you smile.”
It’s been a bumpy road to love for Stause, who was married to This Is Us’s Justin Hartley from 2017 to 2019. The pair went through a highly publicized (and ugly!) divorce. As she shared during season 3 of Selling Sunset, Hartley had notified Stause that he had filed for divorce by text message. “Forty-five minutes later, the world knew,” she said while crying to co-star Mary Fitzgerald.
Since the divorce, Stause has remained single. Meanwhile, Hartley began dating his former The Young and The Restless co-star, Sofia Pernas. During Stause’s stint on Dancing With the Stars, rumors swirled that she was dating her partner Gleb Savchenko; however, both she and Savchenko confirmed they were just friends.
As of October of this year, Hartley revealed that he’s “really happy” with his personal life on an episode of Bevy Smith on Radio Andy. That being said, we hope Stause is too! Congrats on your new man!
