Val Chmerkovskiy, the 30-year-old hunky pro dancer from DWTS, who last year said was ready to fall in love, appears to have finally found the one. Val seems to be head over heals about fellow pro dancer, Jenna Johnson.

The couple who is eight years apart were seen packing on the PDA during a romantic outing earlier this year. Back in February, Jenna and Val were pictured holding hands, kissing and looking very into each other. They are said to have been dating on and off since 2014.

It is not hard to imagine why the couple fell for each other. Though Val is a strong dancer, 22-year-old Jenna definitely has game.
