Kelly and ValAhhhhh!! OMG. According to a new report from In Touch Weekly, Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy are dating and in love. I repeat -- a source says Kelly and Val are officially a couple. Yep, supposedly she finally dumped her boyfriend, Heath Freeman, and now she and Val can live happily ever after and make those of us who have been obsessed with their relationship rooting for them all along incredibly happy and satisfied.

Ok, so I know this is only a rumor, and it came out of In Touch, of all publications, but still. Let's just bask in the idea of Val and Kelly being madly in love with each other for a few minutes before we go ahead and call this story nothing but another juicy piece of Hollywood gossip that may or may not be true.

I don't know what it is about Kelly and Val, but there are plenty of fans who are so captivated by whatever happens to be going on between them. We (yes, we -- I'm all caught up in the hype too) can't even imagine the idea of them not being a couple.

Call it a once-in-a-lifetime friendship. Call it two people who are so drawn to each other, their connection is almost magnetic. Or call it soul mates finding each other in the most unlikely place. Whatever Kelly and Val have is so unique and special, it gives the rest of us hope that maybe, just maybe, we can find a love like that too.

And it's weird, because you'd expect most people to be insanely jealous of their bond -- yet we're not. Fans are genuinely happy for them, and I know I'm not alone in saying that they really deserve each other -- in the best possible way.

Of course, maybe we've been reading way too much into their relationship ever since it started, and the In Touch report is totally bogus. On January 31, Kelly tweeted, "Don't believe everything you read! #trashmags"

Was she referring to the In Touch report? Who knows -- but for the sake of all of her fans, let's hope not.

What do you think is really going on between Kelly and Val?
