Zuleyka Rivera and Jason Canela have confirmed they are in a relationship. The 22-year-old singer and brother of "Mi Corazón Insiste" actor Jencarlos Canela, shared a photo on his Instagram feed that was captioned, "I have the universe in my hands." In the pic (reproduced above) we can see Canela holding the hand of the 26-year-old "Bailando Por Un Sueño" contestant with a beautiful green scenery in the background. The shot is beautiful and shows that both are sharing happy moments. Canela and the former Miss Universe have been together for about a year but have kept mum about the situation. The couple had been spotted in multiple occassions together kissing and taking a stroll with Rivera's son, but had denied any rumors. With this photo it seems that the relationship has leaped over to another stage and both feel comfortable in sharing their love with the world.

Rivera has been traveling to Mexico where she is part of the 2014 cast of dancing reality show "Bailando Por Un Sueño." Zuleyka had a rough first week as she was injured during rehearsals and couldn't perform during the presentation. She was forced to sit out the first gala, but not completely out of the show. The beauty queen had to make a decision between two dreamers and pick her companion for the remainder of the competition. The Puerto Rican born model chose Miguel Angel, who has a dream of helping out his grandfather with all his struggles. "Bailando" features twelve celebrity contestants paired with people that have a passion for dance and hope to win to have their dreams fulfilled. Adrian Uribe and Livia Brito will co-host the weekly gala with FeyCarlos BauteRoberto Mitsuko and Bianca Marroquín. This new season they have also introduced two judges that will grade their style with Raquel Bessudo and Mitzy taking on the task.
