Meryl Davis on Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 'We Have A Life-Long Friendship'

Meryl Davis reunites with Maksim Chmerkovskiy for the 2014 Shall We Dance Live on Ice show that was filmed late last year.

The 28-year-old Olympic ice dancer chatted with Glamour before the special aired on ABC TODAY (February 21) about her friendship with Maks.

“We obviously became incredibly close during the show and sort of coming away from that experience where we were no longer spending every day together, it was interesting to sort of to continue to grow our friendship in a different capacity,” she shared.

Meryl added, “I absolutely love him, and he’s an incredible person. We have this friendship that I have no doubt in my mind is a life-long friendship. Getting a chance to know him away from training for Dancing With the Stars, I think we’ve gotten a chance to know each other in a different way, which of course just makes you closer.”

    They don’t have to be an officlal couple for us to enjoy watching them dance.

    They do indeed appear to have an unusually special relationship. The fact that she feels that they are can and can grow closer in spite of the fact that they don’t work together every day any more says a LOT. Beautiful.
