Dancing pro Cheryl Burke and NFL star Chad Ochocinco can’t hide their devotion to each other. Their sizzling sexual chemistry has made them fan favorites on Dancing With the Stars, while off the set, the dance partners have been spotted kissing.
Recently, Chad gave Cheryl a $22,000, 8.5-carat sparkler — a gift, he claims, for putting up with him.
“It was a bit of a shocker,” Cheryl says at OK!’s exclusive photo shoot. “He’s full of surprises.”
The pair insist they are not engaged, but they clearly are very happy together.
“She is perfect, man, she is perfect,” Chad, 32, gushes to OK!.
“We’re spending every single day together, so it’s kind of hard not to feel that attraction,” Cheryl, 25, adds, explaining that she was drawn to Chad’s competitive spirit as well as his good looks. “Chad and I get along great. He has a sense of humor and he works really hard.”
