Rumors of a possible relationship between Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler and Kailand Morris have been swirling for a few months now, and Maddie finally responded to them the other day.
First, some background info: According to People, the pair met backstage on Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, since both of their siblings, Mackenzie Ziegler and Mandla Morris were competing on the show. Since then, they've been spotted together several times and have even posted photos with each other on social media.

Kailand was also one of the people that Maddie posted photos with during her 16th birthday, where she also got a car from BFF and mentor Sia. Other than Sia, Kailand was the only other person that Maddie featured in her adorable Instagram post featuring the new gift.

So, are they dating? On Friday, Maddie went on The Talk, and obviously the topic of Kailand came up.
"We're all friends," she said, obviously getting a little flustered. "The thing is, we're all great friends. Dancing with the Stars, I mean, you know, you make a family there. So, all of us together - his younger brother Mandla - all of us hang out literally everyday together it's so fun. People assume everything, but we've had a great time, we're all so close, and I love them so much."
OK, so not the most definitive answer, but it def sounds like they're something special between Maddie and Kailand. What do you think?
According to The Blast, the two of them are just having fun for now and aren't too serious.
The couple also recently had a photoshoot with each other done by photographer Tyler Shields. The two of them look so in love with each other as they posed together, almost kissing.

Another photo from the shoot features Kailand holding Maddie's hand as she jumps in the air, looking like she's floating.
Magic can only exist if you let it. We can all find the fairytale in our life if we look in the right place. I’m sad you can’t all see this photo in large scale because it has such a magical feeling @maddieziegler is as graceful as a fairytale and @kailandmorris plays it perfectly. There are no wires in this photo she is really in the air! Tag someone who needs a little fairytale in their life.
