Val Chmerkovskiy & Girlfriend Jenna Johnson Sneak Sweet Kisses Mid-Performance on DWTS Finale
The Dancing with the Stars pro, 31, and dance troupe member, 23, put their love on display during a sultry accompaniment to country star Kelsea Ballerini‘s special performance of her hit single “Legends” on Tuesday’s season 25 finale.
Chmerkovskiy, who was paired with ESPN personality Victoria Arlen for the competition show, and Johnson snuck in two kisses: once mid-way through and the other by ending their choreographed routine which was a far more passionate smooch.
Love was certainly in the air as Ballerini previously explained to PEOPLE that “Legends” is a song she co-wrote about a “crazy, tragic, epic” romance.
Chmerkovskiy and Johnson have been dating off and on for the past two years, but their romance seems to have taken a more serious turn in recent months.
And fans couldn’t help but notice Chmerkovskiy and Johnson’s real-life romance shine through their performance:
In September, Chmerkovskiy gushed about his girlfriend’s “incredible talent” on the ballroom floor. “I’m a huge fan. I think she’s the best girl here, so I’m excited to see her here,” he said. “Jenna is a huge asset to the show.”
And one month before, in August, the younger brother of DWTS pro Maks Chmerkovskiy revealed that he was “in love” with Johnson, and possibly ready to take their relationship status to the next level.
