The Dancing with the Stars celeb and her significant other Matthew Lawrence were in attendance at the 25th Annual Race to Erase MS Gala. This was their very first public appearance together ever since they rekindled their romance and they walked the red carpet hand in hand, looking very in love.
The pair got back together last year after nearly a decade apart!
They previously dated for two years in 2007 before splitting.

‘It’s really great because we are happy, which is such a refreshing thing in a relationship, you know, just for it to be great and everybody be happy,’ Burke revealed.
‘We feel so lucky, at least I do. You know, you get a second chance at something,’ she gushed.
The pro dancer went on to reveal how they decided to reunite.
‘It was a text message last December saying, ‘Hey, want to have dinner? Merry Christmas.’ And then that was it. Then we got back together, and this is our first carpet. It has been like a year and a half since we have been back together, so we have been kind of laying low.’
Sadly, not everything in the Dance Moms star’s life is all rainbows.
Last month, Burke announced that her dad, Stephen Louis Burke, had passed away.
At least she had Lawrence by her side through that painful time.
‘It’s tough… My real father – I have my step-dad, my mom remarried – but my real father lived in Thailand, so I barely saw him as it is. So it was hard for me to go back there and just, I feel like I have a lot of unanswered questions. But I now feel a lot closer to him, and I am finding out more information than I ever have before.’
‘But it is never easy. I could never tell you how I feel…But the depression and sadness you go through is still something that I am trying to get through. There is not one second that I do not think about my dad. So Matt has been amazing. He came with me to Thailand, and he has been very supportive. I would not have been able to get through it, to be honest,’ Burke confessed.
