While Val Chmerkovskiy recently told partner Elizabeth Berkley that he loves Saved by the Bell’s Kelly Kapowski, the No. 1 Kelly in his life will always be his Dancing With the StarsSeason 15 partner. While they don’t see each other every day now, when they do reunite, they make it count.
Val Instagrammed one of the cutest photos of all time with him picking her up for a tight embrace. It looks like they’re at a coffee shop, with the barista giggling as Val squeezes his eyes shut and picks her up off the ground and Kelly smiles and poses, popping her leg in the air. Notably, neither of her feet touch the ground due to her petite stature. Aww!
The DWTS pro captioned the pic, “...been a long time @kelly_m23” with a cute “shocked” emoticon. Based on the 10.2 million likes (and counting), everyone is excited to see them reunite.
It’s no surprise that Val and Kelly are still so close. Their chemistry was electric — Val told Wetpaint Entertainment in April that “last season’s chemistry with Kelly was so magnetic and so huge that it’s still fresh” — and they have been spotted together multiple times since the show ended. Hey, maybe she’ll even cheer him on during Monday’s Hollywood Night episode!Are you excited to see Val and Kelly reunited? Sound off below, and catch him on DWTS on Monday, September 30 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
