How Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson really got together

Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson have the most adorable meeting that resulted in the most adorable twins. The happy couple tied the knot in July 2017 — and haven’t stopped gushing about each other since. “I’m just so happy to be going through life with Robert,” Johnson told People just days before she and Herjavec tied the knot, while the “Shark Tank” star added of his then-bride-to-be: ” I enjoy every minute I spend with Kym. When I met her I felt complete.” Awww!

Fast forward to April 2018 and Herjavec and Johnson became parents together for the first time (Herjavec already has three children from his previous marriage), with the businessman confirming the birth of their twins Haven and Hudson via a sweet Instagram post. “Welcome to the world Hudson Robert Herjavec & Haven Mae Herjavec – it’s great out here! May you always know love, peace and grace in your life. May your dreams have no limits and may your spirit be strong,” he wrote. Many super cute family snaps have followed over the years, including this photo from August of the parents and their growing twins on a boat trip.

But how did this adorable family really come about? Well, we have a reality competition show to thank for that.

Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson kissed on ‘Dancing with the Stars’

You may have forgotten that Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson’s fairytale romance is all thanks to Dancing with the Stars. The ‘Shark Tank’ star teamed up with professional dancer Johnson for the show’s 20th season in 2015, and sparks clearly flew in the ballroom. In fact, there was such chemistry that these two even kissed during a dance in May 2015! But both denied at the time that it was anything romantic. Johnson hit back at Us Weekly: “It was just part of the dance!” adding, “We just thought, ‘Let’s see how we feel on the night,’ and we did. We just — it surprised me because I didn’t know if he was going to do it or not.” Herjavec then added, “We’re professional dancers, we were just in the moment.” Yes / Yes. whatever they say

The pair eventually made it to a respectable sixth place finish and stayed very close after the show, officially confirming they were dating about four months after the season finale. Everything just seemed to fall into place for these two when they joked to People in September 2015 that despite only knowing each other for eight months, they already feel like they’ve been married for years. Herjavec (who split from his first wife in the summer of 2014) also shared how grateful he was to the show for bringing Johnson into his life.

Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson moved pretty quickly

As they say, if you know, you know, and without taking years and years to decide, Robert Herjavec clearly knew Kym Johnson was right for him. People confirmed that he and Johnson were officially engaged in February 2016, about a year after they first met after getting together on “Dancing with the Stars.” “I still can’t believe my life has changed so much a year after I walked into a dance studio of all places,” Herjavec gushed after their engagement, some five months before the happy couple tied the knot.

But for all the chemistry that eventually blossomed from their often-steamy “DWTS” dances, things didn’t seem to immediately run romantically for Herjavec and Johnson. The latter revealed to People in January 2016 that (we’re guessing before that infamous “DWTS” lip lock) their relationship started out purely platonic. “We met on a friendship level. That evolved into something else. We’re both each other’s biggest fans and have respect for one another,” she shared.
