The model, who was eliminated on Monday’s episode of the hit ABC show after an emotional rehearsal, took to Instagram to share a particularly sweet message for Chmerkovskiy.
“Although our time was cut short, I’m so happy I had the chance to experience this with you!” she captioned a picture of the two. “You truly are my brother for life! Who knew we would become so close in such a short amount of time?”
“Thank you for not giving up on me and getting to know the real me with no judgment,” she added. “I’ll love you forever for that reason and I’ll always have [your] back through whatever. I’ll miss our stressed out rehearsals more than anything [though]! Love Amberony.”
Chmerkovskiy, 36, also took a moment to thank Rose, 32, for the experience.
“My dearest Amberony! Thank you for some of the best weeks of my @dancingabc career!” he wrote. “You’ve not let me down and only made me more proud each week. You’ve become a friend and an older sisters (although you’re younger … you know what I mean), and this is definitely just the beginning of ‘Amber and Maks.’ ”
“This experience got cut short and I wish we would have just a few more weeks, but it happened exactly as it were meant to and I absolutely have no regrets,” he continued. “The world has yet to see what you can really do and I can’t wait to be in your corner when it does. Love, Me.”
Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays (8 p.m ET) on ABC.
