Derek has been dating Dancing With the Stars troupe member Hayley Erbert since 2015, but added, “Oh, no. If anything, [we have] a lot of [family], there’s like 55 nieces and nephews. We got plenty, we’re fine!”
The pro dancer may not be planning a wedding, but he is working hard on his growing career.
“I feel great, this year was a very transitional year for me,” he said. “It was fantastic as far as going on new adventures and they worked out very well, so that was very good career-wise. I’m excited for 2018 — 2018 is jam-packed already. It’s already laid out.”
"I’m excited. I love working, I love creating,” he said.
The Hairspray Live! star added that he doesn't mind being busy when its with things he's passionate about.
“I’ve been fortunate enough to mix business with pleasure and going on these amazing trips, ventures, and traveling,” he said. “[I’m] going to Petra next week, then Jordan and Israel. I’m excited!”
