Because of their steamy chemistry in the ballroom “Dancing With The Stars” Season 18 winners Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy have fans on pins and needles wondering if the two are more than just partners.

So who better to get the low-down from than Maks’ brother, Val Chmerkovskiy? Zap2it caught up with the dancing pro after the big finale (May 20) where he said the Season 18 victory was a family affair.

“It’s not only a win for him and Meryl, but it’s a win for our entire family,” he says. “We’re a very tight knit unity of friends and family and he’s the Don. He’s always that guy whose passion drives you to be better.”

Val dished on the couple that even “DWTS” judge Carrie Ann Inaba said needs to get married, saying, “He loves her probably more than I have ever seen him love another woman before. He adores her, but it is like a King Kong type of relationship. He’s so gentle with her because he wants to see her shine. He doesn’t want to hurt her. It’s a love that is bigger than a kiss or a label. He definitely loves her and I know that she loves him back.”
