Super model Kate Upton rang in her 21st birthday on Monday and now we have found out that the blonde super model may have celebrated her milestone birthday with a new man.
The two-time Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover girl is currently rumored to be dating “Dancing With the Stars” pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy, even though they claim to just be good friends.
“It’s very new,” a source says. “They were set up through friends. They just started dating.”
Whatever their status may be, the pair certainly looked like a couple when they had a romantic dinner at Scalinatella in New York City’s Upper East Side neighborhood.
“They were very canoodly,” a source says also noting that the birthday girl and the dancer arrived late and were holding hands at the table. “It was a very intimate meal.”
Upton is currently shooting “The Other Woman” with Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann. It’s her first starring role in a feature film after making cameos in 2011’s “Tower Heist” and 2012’s “The Three Stooges.”
Chmerkovskiy was previously engaged to fellow “DWTS” pro Karina Smirnoff, but they called it quits in September 2009. The 33 year old also starred in the Ukrainian edition of “The Bachelor” in 2011.
Maybe Kate Upton is the love he’s been looking for.
