“Dancing With the Stars” pro Britt Stewart and her Season 31 dance partner, Daniel Durant, are dating.
The “CODA” actor, 33, revealed the news as he shared an Instagram photo of the two of them celebrating Valentine’s Day on Tuesday.
“My Valentine. ♥️ Happy Valentine’s Day!” he captioned the photo which featured the two of them hugging.
Shortly after, the professional dancer shared her own Valentine’s Day post, featuring a video of the couple dancing to the song “Fall in Love With You” by Montell Fish.
Following their social media debut, dozens of “DWTS” alums flooded their comments section with support.
“Is this a soft launch??? 😍😍😍 love you both!!” Whitney Carson wrote while Selma Blair added, “❤️❤️. I love this so so much.”
“Happy Valentine’s Day you lovebirds!!!” Pasha Pashkov chimed in.
While it’s unclear whether their romance started during the show or while they were on tour, Stewart has dedicated herself to their relationship since the very beginning.
After learning that Durant — who is deaf — was her partner for the 2022 season, Stewart learned American Sign Language to better communicate with the actor.
“She knows how to sign, she’s learning how to sign,” Durant told Us Weekly in September 2022. “Before, my interpreter … he’d be there interpreting for us at practice, and now he fades away during practice and it’s nice. She understands me.”
He continued, “She’s such a brilliant woman and she shows me her skills and it’s amazing. And she looked at me and I feel like I knew she could teach me.”
The extra effect seemingly led to a deeper connection and the pair sparked romance rumors back in December after fans noticed their flirty exchanges during a live Q&A.
After one fan asked Durant to show off his speaking voice, he seemed reluctant before his partner stepped in to ease his nerves.
“I love your voice, and I said this the last time, that I love your laugh, and my name, it just sounds perfect,” Stewart told him.
In fact, later on in the Live, the “Switched at Birth” star revealed the sweet nickname he calls Stewart in their texts.
“If we’re texting, I call her B-shine,” he gushed. “Because that’s like the sign, it’s the shine from my heart.”
Although the pair ended up placing fifth in the dancing competition, it looks like they were the real winners in the end.
