Alexis Ren revealed on Dancing With the Stars last night that she is developing feelings for her dance partner Alan Bersten, and our hearts have officially bursted. While they previously danced around dating rumors, it looks like things might be getting romantic.
“Alan, he’s awesome. He’s super outgoing. He’s definitely been a really good reflection for me to not take myself so seriously. It’s so much fun to dance with someone that you have a connection with. It’s almost like time slows down. We communicate not just through our steps and our movements, but with our hearts too,” the 21-year-old social media star shared on the show. “I am developing feelings for Alan. And I didn’t see this one coming. But it happened really quickly though, so I think I’m still trying to process it.”
The star addressed the “elephant in the room” during the team’s rehearsals, and that’s when she told her partner how she really feels about him.
“We have chemistry,” she said. “And so I just needed to point that out.”
Alan’s reaction to Alexis sharing her feelings was seriously the sweetest.
“Sitting next to Alexis on the couch and her telling me how she feels, my emotions were all over the place. You know, it was a lot to take in.”
The 24-year-old dancer added admitted that he also thinks they have “really strong chemistry,” saying, “You know, she’s funny, she’s kind, she has a huge heart. I want to be 100 percent certain before I tell her how I’m feeling. I have a lot to think about.”
It’s definitely been an emotional season for Alexis. Previously, she opened up about her late mother and how being on the show would’ve made her so proud. As for whether or not she and Alan will become official, only time will tell! But it’s looking promising, if we do say so ourselves.
