We have been dying to know if newly crowned Dancing With the Stars champions are officially dating or not, because even though neither will confirm it, all sign point to yes. Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis are just about the most ridiculously cute couple in the history of ever, and nothing would make us happier than to see them live happily ever after together.
Maks' brother Val Chmerkovskiy has weighed in on the relationship between the dancing partners, and has confirmed that Maks does indeed love Meryl "more than I've seen him love another woman," but it isn't neccessarily romantic love.
Hold the phone. Has he not seen the chemistry between these two? How can you love someone more than any other, have insane attractibility, yet not be mad-dog crazy in love and want to get married and have babies, stat?
Val told Us Weekly, "She was good for him, but I feel it wouldn't do their love justice ... one makeout session in the middle of the dance or to label it that they are a couple -- it sounds great, but that's not what it is. He loves her probably more than I've seen him love another woman -- he loves and adores her -- but it's like a King Kong type of relationship."
Please explain the King Kong reference, sir. I'm not sure any girls wants her potential romance to be described as "King Kong."
He continued, "She's precious, and he's gentle with her because he wants to see her shine and he won't want to hurt her. He's willing to calm down for her because she's the last person he wants to see cry and the last person he wants to hurt."

He also called their love "bigger than a kiss," and confirmed again, "He definitely loves her, and I know she loves him back." He also said the whole Chmerkovskiy family adores her.
"We as a family love her, too. We love Meryl, but I don't know if they were meant for each other or just meant to be in each other's lives for this moment," he said. "Or for many moments, definitely, as it's a friendship they'll keep for a very long time."
Let me see. He's protective of her. Loves her more than any other. She gets along with the potential in-laws. Maks joked on the finale Tuesday that he wanted to "ravish" his partner and have "big, ice-dancing" babies with her. Their love is bigger than kiss, and he would do anything to keep from hurting her because she's the last person he wants to see cry.
That's it, folks. That's the dream. That's the big, once-in-a-lifetime, fairytale love. So long as two people feel that way about each other, they can make it as a couple. If what Val is saying about Maks is true, and assuming Meryl feels the same way, they've got it.
They should just get married and have babies already. Big, ice-dancing babies.
Do you think Maks and Meryl should just admit they're a couple already?
