Nelly recently paid a sweet tribute to his lady on Dancing With The Stars, where he dedicated his Villains Night dance to his girlfriend, before giving a knock out performance and scoring big.

In an interview with ET’s Lauren Zima, Nelly revealed just how much he loves himself some Shantel.

“She’s great. She’s really dope. We have a great time, and we understand each other. During his performance, he and partner Daniella Karagach did the tango to The Weeknd’s “I Can’t Feel My Face,” which he revealed is he and Shantel’s favorite song.

“We have so much in common,” Nelly shared in the post-show. “She grew up in the inner city, she knows what it’s like to go through certain things in life when you grow up in the inner city.”

“She’s very driven, very passionate about the things she does and she doesn’t accept anything but wanting to be better,” he added. “And that’s what I love. That’s exactly what I love.”

Shantel is 36-years-old, originally from Miami. She is also college-educated, studying psychology and acting at the University of Miami.
