But after eight years together he reportedly broke up with her to start dating his DWTS season six partner Shannon Elizabeth.Though the couple shot down rumors that they dated while on the show, she eventually confessed in 2009 that they had indeed been dating and announced their breakup on Twitter.

But that's been happening for years and it doesn't seem to phase him, so good for you, Derek!

The show's last episode featured a poignant moment as contestant Jack Osbourne recounted the highs and lows of 2012, which included marriage and a daughter as well discovering he had multiple sclerosis.
