Ever since Season 18 of "Dancing With the Stars" began, rumors have been swirling about Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy's super-close relationship. While they have been coy about actually admitting it -- despite their intense PDA and brother Valentin Chmerkovskiy's admission that Maks probably loves Meryl more than any other woman -- it looks like Meryl just may have confirmed their romance on her Instagram.

On Wednesday, Meryl posted a pic of herself and Maks just after they won the mirror ball trophy, writing, "So proud of @maksimc. So lucky to have gone on this ride with you. #dwts18?.

And of all the zillions of pics she could have chosen from the finale, she chose one where they are super close, their faces in each other's necks. Was this an admission?
