Laurie Hernandez has nothing but nice things to say about Valentin Chmerkovskiy and Amber Rose‘s relationship.
If you remember, the 16-year-old gymnast won the Mirrorball Trophy with Val during the last season of Dancing With the Stars.
Amber was partnered up with Val’s brother Maks.
“He can do whatever he wants,” Laurie told People. “I mean, she’s a sweetheart. My mom really likes her.”
As for her own dating life, Laurie said, “I’m still waiting. I mean, I still don’t have time for it, but hopefully I’ll make time soon.”

Over the summer, Peta and Maks announced that they were expecting a baby boy early 2017 and it looks like that time has officially come!
Maks‘ younger brother Val Chmerkovskiy took to his Instagram to cancel his Dancing with the Stars tour appearance because Peta is “literally delivering the baby as soon as I’m done with this video, hopefully.”

Val Chmerkovskiy is featured in this hot new spread for Bello magazine!
The 30-year-old DWTS dancer and last season’s champ discussed keeping things fresh on the show and more! Here’s what he shared…
On staying fresh after all these years on DWTS: “I try and stay current. I try and get back to New York as much as I can, because of the inspiration that’s in the city. I feel like variety, diversity, culture, history, passion – these [are] all things I find really, really inspiring….The fact that there are so many people within the city with different views. It motivates my curiosity. I think that’s what keeps me going and inspired – the ability to learn something new everyday.”
On his favorite song right now: “To be honest – I love all genres, but I grew up in Brooklyn, New York – so I’m a hip hop head, an old school one. Right now, A$AP Ferg’s new song gets me – “New Level.” I can’t contain myself, dude – that beat drops really heavily.”
