Kate Upton is apparently dating former "Dancing with the Stars" pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Ever notice how it's always the good-looking people who get the good-looking people?

The pair was recently spotted out together in New York City, holding hands. A source close to the couple told People.com "They are very serious."

The source said the couple met about six months ago through a mutual friend and started off as friends. "Along the way," the source says, "it turned into something else."

Things got that way when the 33-year-old Chmerkovskiy took Upton to an intimate dinner at Scalinatella in New York to celebrate her 21st birthday on June 10.

"That's when it really happened," said the source. "It all really started just after her 21st birthday. They just clicked. They have a lot of chemistry together. They get along great. They have a lot of fun together."
